Call it benefit of an easy schedule, or call it how it truly is: a great team finding ways to win.
Over the last several weeks many people are putting the Kansas City Chiefs 9-0 record under a microscope and trying to dissect how this 2-14 team went from worst to first during the offseason.
If the first half was “easy” then the second half will test every aspect of the team. This week they are on the bye, but then the meat of the schedule comes as they face the Broncos twice in three weeks, the Andrew Luck-led Colts, San Diego twice, the Raiders and the Redskins. Those are all good teams, and the Chiefs face the challenge of not only winning, but showing the NFL, and themselves, that they are as good as the record states.
So how should the 9-0 Chiefs approach the rest of the season?
The same way they’ve been doing it all season long.
The Chiefs are playing nitty gritty in your face defense, while their offense limits the turnovers and continually finds ways to move the ball and eat up the clock.
There may be countless questions about whether or not the offense can hold pace with the Broncos and beat these better teams, but winning will come down to more than just keeping pace.
It’s all about the defense.
If this defense keeps holding opponents to 20 points and under, the offense has enough skill to get points on the board and keep them in games.
Will the Chiefs go the season undefeated? No. Probably not.
They will have some hard fought games coming up, and it will test them as a team.
But, can they continuing their winning ways by playing Chiefs football? Absolutely . The Chiefs don’t need to change their approach at all after the bye week. They just need to keep finding ways to win game. It doesn’t matter if it’s pretty. All that matters is that it’s a win.
