LA Chargers (2-3) vs Kansas City Chiefs (5-1), Sunday at 4:25 P.M. EST

Prediction: Chiefs 38, Chargers 34

Kansas City has not played great during the early portion of their season other than a few games. Their offense seems to be getting on the right track and that could come in handy against a high-flying offense like the Chargers. LA has always challenged the Chiefs in their prior games and that should continue here. It will be a high-scoring contest that should see Patrick Mahomes and company get down the field one more time than the Chargers.

Miami Dolphins (5-1) vs Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), Sunday at 8:20 P.M. EST

Prediction: Eagles 30, Dolphins 24

Two teams that will be in contention for the Super Bowl once the playoffs roll around. Philadelphia is coming off a tough loss and has not looked great most of the season, especially on offense. The Dolphins offense has been the best in the NFL thus far and shows no signs of slowing down. This one will be played at the Eagles stadium and Miami has shown struggles to beat playoff-contending teams in the past. Expect a high-scoring affair that sees a big stand by the Eagles defense that seals the deal.

San Francisco 49ers (5-1) vs Minnesota Vikings (2-4), Monday at 8:15 P.M. EST

Prediction: 49ers 24, Vikings 23

San Francisco is coming off a shocking loss to the Browns last week and they could be without a couple of star players. The Vikings will also be dealing with some key injuries and their struggles this season will be magnified here. It should be closer than most think but expect the 49ers to find different ways to add points on the board. Kirk Cousins can't be Superman in Minnesota, and that is why they'll continue to lose a lot of games this season.
