2. Kansas City Chiefs
Right when it seemed like the Kansas City Chiefs were about to become victims of being upset by the Oakland Raiders, Patrick Mahomes found a way to get the offense rolling in the second quarter before the Kansas City Chiefs would go on to earn the win.
Believe it or not, all four touchdown passes by Mahomes came in the second quarter for the Chiefs, and while it would have been great to see the reigning MVP add a few more in the second half, Kansas City winning is what matters the most.
Losing Tyreek Hill in Week 1 left the Chiefs with a tough hole to fill in the passing game, but the Chiefs should be thrilled over watching Demarcus Robinson stepping up the way he did against the Raiders.
By catching six passes for 172 yards to go along with two scores, Robinson is the perfect example ow how loaded this Kansas City team is with weapons for Mahomes to rely on, and even without their star receiver in Hill, this offense will be just fine.
As long as Mahomes continues to play at a MVP level, the Chiefs are going to continue to be one of the top teams to defeat in the AFC.
Kansas City may not be on the same level as the New England Patriots at the moment, but they’re certainly close.
