Do The Chiefs Have A Top 5 Defense?

5 of 5

The numbers are only going to get better.

I also found it interesting that HC Andy Reid said this week he thinks the Chiefs have benefited from their top-heavy schedule against tough opponents. Unlike last year where the team looked unprepared for strong QB play and top teams towards the end of the schedule, the 2014 Chiefs have shown that they can compete with any team on any field.

This to me more than anything is why I expect the Chiefs to roll over the next three opponents – St. Louis, the Jets and Buffalo. When you’re in the mindset to take down prize fighters and have been doing so all season, you’re going to make short work of any amateur who steps in the ring.
