Eagles-Chiefs preview

>>tonight

Chiefs (2-0) at Eagles (1-1)

When/where: 8:25; Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia

TV/radio: NFL Network; 1010-AM

Line/OU: Eagles by 3; 51

Coach Andy Reid makes a quick return to Philadelphia, having led Kansas City to as many wins as in all of 2012. The Chiefs were the league's lowest-scoring team last season. Their 28 points in a Week 1 win against Jacksonville were more than in any game in 2012. How underappreciated is Chiefs QB Alex Smith? He's 21-5-1 as a starter since the start of 2011 with 34 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Eagles RB LeSean McCoy is thriving in first-year coach Chip Kelly's offense, leading the NFL with 356 yards from scrimmage. This will come down to turnovers. Kansas City is plus-4, Philadelphia plus-3.

Greg Auman's pick: Eagles 31, Chiefs 27

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Less proved to be more for RHP Jake Odorizzi during his last start when he pitched exclusively out of the stretch. The result was seven one-hit innings in the Rays' 3-2 win Monday at Oakland.

    Rays starter Jake Odorizzi says that pitching from the stretch “limited the movements prior to throwing the pitch, and that changed a lot of things” in a superb outing last week.

  5. Roger Mooney's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Rangers game

    The Heater

    Judging by those who were asking for them before Saturday's giveaways, those who tried to get an extra one or two once inside the Trop and those who quickly slipped theirs on before finding their seats, the DJ Kitty Onesie might be the Rays' most popular giveaway. Ever.
