The San Francisco 49ers is scheduled to fight against the Kansas City Chiefs on Oct. 6 at 4:25 p.m. EST at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. With their incoming match this Monday experts are already out with their predictions and analysis on both teams. Both the 49ers and the Chiefs have 2-2 under their belts and both will need the win to keep hanging onto the chance of a playoffs.
The 49ers had a much-needed victory against the Philadelphia Eagles to keep them in the season, however, their offense and special teams were lacking even after being saved by their defense plays. Against the Chiefs they will need to step up their offense and defense if they don't want to lose their chance at playing in the playoffs.
The Chiefs also face a similar scenario where they need a win against the 49ers to secure their place in the playoffs. In week 1 they were defeated by the Tennessee Titans and then by the Denver Broncos before acquiring wins agaisnt the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots. more >>

The NBA season is only weeks away and team are already preparing their teams for the coming matchups. The Boston Celtics coach, Brad Stevens, wants his team to be faster with more passing, more ball control, and more freewheeling style. For contrast, the Celtics finished in 17th place last year.
"I want more aggression on sets overall, offensively and defensively. More pressure, more pace," Stevens said earlier this week as he prepared his team for training camp.
It would look as if Stevens wants to put more pressure on his team, but the players understand his demands and aren't forced to make the changes. more >>
The Dallas Cowboys will be facing against the Houston Texans coming Oct. 6 at 1 p.m. EST at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Both are two of the eight teams in their division with three wins each and no team has four wins yet – the Cardinals are already 3-0 as well as the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cowboys and the Texans both have the opportunity to move to four wins.
While the Cowboys are worrying about their next game with the Texans and their potential 4-1 record, C.J. Spillman, the defensive back for the Cowboys, is being investigated for a sexual assault case. The case was filed Sept. 20, according to Sgt. Robert Eberling of the Grapevine Police Department. No other information has been released to help in the investigation of the alleged incident.
"Any investigation involving a sexual assault does take some time. At this point, there has not been any arrests or formal charges have been filed or anything like that. But we're continuing to investigate," Eberling said. more >>
In the NFL, the Denver Broncos lost Week 3 against the world champions, the Seattle Seahawks. Now they are back home to face against another NFC West team, the Arizona Cardinals. However, the Cardinals are difficult opponents as they are the second-best team in their division and even in their conference.
The Cardinals will be a tough team to fight against as they are good at both sides of the ball and the Broncos want to get back on the winning side. However, to do that they will need to improve on some areas they have been struggling with all year like their passing. This year, the Broncos are having trouble moving the ball around and will struggle against a tougher defensive opponent like the Cardinals.
Last year, the Broncos were averaging 375 yards per game but this year, it went down to 260 yards per game and it's a huge difference. While it might be concerning that the Arizona's head coach Bruce Arians and assistant head coach Tom Moore know quarterback Peyton Manning, it still boils down to players. more >>
