The Chiefs played a cupcake schedule last season that included games against just two playoff teams. This year, they will play six playoff contenders from last year, including all four conference finalists. Of their seven losses last season, four came by 20 points or more. Kansas City also finished 2-4 in AFC West games, including a blowout loss against all three opponents.
If they are to repeat as division champions and postseason participants, the Chiefs need to make some significant gains all over the field.

“I’m driving into River falls, you come through Minneapolis, I turn in and I’m driving down that little road into River Falls and there’s a big billboard that says, ‘River Falls Welcomes Joe Montana!’ in big red letters and then in very small letters, at my age now I probably can’t read it, it said, ‘And The Kansas City Chiefs’.
