There are several factors that make this game look like a spot for an upset:.

1, The stadium factor. Arrowhead is one of the toughest road sites in the NFL, a noisier outdoor stadium than some of the indoor ones. Gunther Cunningham points out that St. Louis' first loss last season was at another noisy outdoor venue in Tennessee.

``At Tennessee, the crowd had a lot to do with it. I hope our crowd is as loud as I'll ever hear them this year,'' Cunningham says.

2, The grass factor. In their only grass game this season, the Rams were ``held'' to 37 points, their season low, in Seattle, and barely won, 37-34.

3, The AFC West factor. The two closest calls for the Rams this season were against AFC West teams, the opening 41-36 win at home over Denver and the Seahawks victory in the second week.

4, The tough loss factor. The Chiefs, who arguably have had the toughest schedule in football, are coming off a tough home loss to the Raiders and, at 3-3, need this game badly.
