The Kansas City Chiefs look to kick off title defense with another big win over the Texans – Sean Miller picks the game, points, and props

The NFL's 101st season starts at 8:20 pm EDT.

Well, Andy Reid finally got his championship.

Now, his Kansas City Chiefs are looking to become the new New England Patriots (tongue twister, right?) and possibly build a dynasty. But even if that does not happen over the next decade, the Chiefs can become only the third team in the last quarter century to win back-to-back titles (Denver, Super Bowls XXXII and XXXIII; New England, XXXVIII and XXXIX)

But the Chiefs might not even be in this position if the Houston Texans, tonight’s opponent, did not blow a 24-0 second quarter lead in the AFC Divisional Round last January. Kansas City erased that deficit by halftime, and outscored the Texans 51-7 over the final 40 minutes.

This game should have a lot of points, and I would expect the Chiefs to begin their repeat quest to start off with a win.
