Kansas City averages 241.6 passing yards per game (21st). QB Alex Smith should be back to starting lineup after missing last week with a concussion.
“The nice thing is I got to practice all week, go out there, be in pads, have the helmet on, do all that stuff," Smith said. “That’s the progression that normally takes place. It’s nice to kind of have that done last week. I feel I’ll be able to kind of move forward like a regular week."
TE Travis Kelce (39 rec, 435 yards, 3 TDs) was ejected last after thrown a towel at a ref. He’s the leading receiver on the team. WR Jeremy Maclin (30 rec, 376 yards, 2 TDs) missed last week’s game and is considered day-to-day with a groin injury. The Chiefs average 100.8 rushing yards per game (21st). RB Spencer Ware (102 car, 511 yards, 2 TDs) is back at practice after missing the game against the Jags due to a concussion.

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Panthers have struggled with their Super Bowl hangover at 3-5 SU and 2-5-1 ATS (with the push being last week in their 3-point win over the Rams). They are still public darling. The Chiefs, are the Rodney Dangerfield of the league. They get no respect even after going 16-2 SU in their past 18 regular-season games.
