The Cardinals come to Arrowhead on a four-game losing streak, though they nearly pulled off a win two weeks ago at Minnesota before Brett Favre led a late rally to force the game to overtime.
All told, Arizona hasn't won a road game since Week 1 at St. Louis, and they have been beaten rather decisively in three of their four road losses.
Former Browns quarterback Derek Anderson opened the season as the Cardinals' starter, but was replaced after three games by undrafted rookie Max Hall. After two games with Hall as the starter, the Cardinals went back to Anderson, who will be under center for them on Sunday.
Arizona sits at 3-6 on the season, but their schedule suggests they're capable of putting up a fight now and then. A 10-point win over the defending champion Saints is proof enough of that. They also had a close loss at home to Tampa and the near-win on the road at Minnesota.
Ultimately, though, the Cardinals have one of the league's worst offenses, one of the league's worst defenses, and they're in last place in a division that only has one team over .500. On top of all that, they've been a pretty bad road team this season.
If the Chiefs can't win a home game against the worst team in the NFC West, then it's hard to imagine K.C. being favored in any of the remaining games on their schedule. A loss would drop the Chiefs to .500 and curb any hope of the team competing for a playoff birth.
