What to watch for: Chiefs-Rams

We here at the NFL had so much fun watching the return of football last weekend that we decided to do it all again this week. Around The NFL's Conor Orr dissects what you can expect to see from the 16 games this weekend.

Here's what to what to watch for ...

» Jared Goff should start getting first-team reps at some point, even if head coach Jeff Fisher wants to wait until the all-important third preseason game. Doing so against the Chiefs would be a vote of confidence after a quiet debut against Dallas.

» The great Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star has raised our antennas to "football player" Tyreek Hill, who has been taking some handoffs out of the backfield in an effort to recreate the speed back role so desperately needed in Andy Reid's offense.

» Higbee watch: As we noted before, the Rams needs production from rookie tight end Tyler Higbee, and his five-catch, 49-yard debut was possibly the most encouraging aspect of L.A.'s opener.
