5. Kansas City Chiefs
Recap: The Chiefs pulled one out making it 1-1 without Patrick Mahomes. Sitting pretty at 6-3 with a bye week and plenty of cupcakes this team could easily finish the season somewhere around 11 or 12 wins and everyone could forget about all those games where Mahomes was hurt and the offense disappeared for a little while.
The defense has got to be better or at the very least be bad and make the occasional play. However, everything is built off of the offense in KC as the defense builds off of the pressure that the offense puts on opposing teams knowing that you desperately need to score points to beat the Chiefs.
Today the Chiefs handled their business and nailed the walk-off kick to escape defeat and if Matt Moore is your QB you will absolutely take that.
Outlook: The sky is the limit for Kansas City who should host a playoff game and potentially be the #1 seed if it turns out New England was just trashing bad teams this whole time. Now all we have to worry about is Andy Reid in the postseason, what could go wrong?
