In Week 4 of Sunday Night Football, the New York Jets will face off against the Kansas City Chiefs, potentially with Taylor Swift in attendance. The Chiefs made headlines not only for their performance in Week 3 but also for having pop icon Taylor Swift in attendance, courtesy of an invitation from Travis Kelce. The Chiefs’ offense, led by Kelce, showed its usual high-powered form in the game. A notable surprise has been the strong performance of the Chiefs’ defense, which has allowed only 19 points in the past two weeks.
On the other hand, the Jets are experiencing a bit of a rough patch, akin to a Taylor Swift breakup song, with two losses following Aaron Rodgers’ injury in Week 1. Quarterback Zach Wilson has thrown four interceptions compared to his two touchdowns since stepping in for Rodgers. The Jets’ rushing attack has been struggling, managing only 102 yards in the last two games combined. This puts considerable pressure on the Jets’ defense, which was a top 10 unit last season but is currently performing at a more average level. The question is whether either or both units can step up to keep pace with the Chiefs.
