Chiefs file prediction for 2020

Document: 12-FourDivision: No. 1 in AFC WestPlayoffs: No. 1 seed in AFC

Iyer’s take:

The Chiefs are sturdy favorites to repeat as AFC and Tremendous Bowl champions with nice cause. Patrick Mahomes and Chris Jones obtained paid, and even with Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and Damien Williams opting out, they continue to be loaded offensively. The protection stays a robust complement with Jones and Frank Clark. This time, Andy Reid’s group will get again that No. 1 seed, too. 

Rivera’s take:

All of it begins with the quarterback within the NFL, and the Chiefs have one of the best one within the universe. 

For those who did not discover from KC’s miraculous playoff run, they have been down in each sport en path to that Tremendous Bowl victory. In truth, they have been the primary group in NFL historical past to win three video games after trailing by 10 or extra factors in a single postseason. That is fairly good! What’s even higher is that the Chiefs are returning most of their impression gamers from the 2019 season in 2020.

The defending champs might be with out Cameron Erving, Stefen Wisniewski (free company), Damien Williams and Laurent Duvernay-Tardif (opted out) for the 2020 season, so that they’ll must get some work accomplished alongside the offensive line to repeat. Nonetheless, the Mahomes issue mitigates the ache of these losses alongside the road, because the Chiefs’ QB (and $500 million man) does miraculous issues outdoors of the pocket. Additionally they added Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the course of the draft, and there might not be a greater marriage between prospect and coach than there may be Edwards-Helaire and Andy Reid.

Whereas the protection is not as sturdy because the offensive facet of the ball — the linebacking corps is arguably the weakest a part of the group — they nonetheless have sufficient firepower on the offensive facet of the ball to outlast anybody within the NFL. Couple that with the truth that the AFC West is not a very aggressive division, then Reid, Mahomes and the Chiefs may — and will — march again to the playoffs and begin speaking repeat come January.

Remaining file: 13-Three
