As much as I lament about the Arizona Cardinals defense's chances against the Kansas City Chiefs offense, I have a greater sense of doom with the Cards offense going up against the Chiefs defense, especially in a loud stadium like Arrowhead.

The Cards offense, which is ranked 31st in the NFL, only scoring 19.4 points per game, and you can thank the defense and special teams for several of those scores, need to put points on the board today in KC.  Quarterback Derek Anderson must find his intended targets and the Cardinals, I will say it again, need a balanced attack.  I think a balanced attack is the best way to beat the Chiefs.

As for that Chiefs defense, they are only 19th in the NFL, so they can be scored on, although at home they've given up no more than 20 points in their four games at Arrowhead.  They've given up only 10 points in two of those four games.  They give up an average of 21.6 points per game.  They allow 344.7 yards per game, so that may give the Cards a chance to gain more than the 263.9 yards per game they have averaged so far.  Let's just hope it's not in garbage time.
