While watching the game in person is an exhilarating experience even in the preseason, it’s hard to judge players from so far away. There are many ongoing battles when it comes to roster spots for the final 53 positions. There are several positions on the Kansas City Chiefs both offensively and defensively where Kansas City may have to make a cut that will go on to play elsewhere this season.

The talent on the Chiefs is playing out in the preseason games. The games don’t matter, but being able to hold on for a win at the end of the game because your second, third and sometimes even fourth-string guys are better than the other teams is not something I am used to seeing.

In previous years if the Chiefs got the lead early they would lose it late. Moving forward in the John Dorsey and Andy Reid era, this will become more evident with each passing year. The depth across the team is good and will be able to contribute this season.
