Might it be possible that the Chiefs are as good as advertised? Certainly they face another big test when they travel to Foxborough to meet the New England Patriots in the divisional round, but did it occur to anyone that they could actually win that game? We’ve all seen this episode. Remember the Monday Night Football game from a year ago? Kansas City stood no chance of beating the Patriots at Arrowhead — until it happened. The media had a ready-made excuse for Tom Brady; he was finished — until he went on to win Super Bowl XLIX.

The Chiefs deserve more than the changing narrative they’ve been saddled with. Unfortunately, it might take advancing to the AFC Championship Game for the team to be taken seriously. Time will ultimately tell if this Chiefs team is the result of a favorable string of opponents or of good coaching and a loaded roster. Don’t be surprised if the Chiefs’ Super Bowl aspirations live on another week following Saturday’s matchup with the Patriots. I believe they’re that good.

Are the Chiefs really in position to continue their postseason run or will Bill Belichick and company dash their hopes of an AFCCG appearance? Was Saturday’s win over Houston as impressive as the box score indicates or did they simply draw a suspect opponent? Use the comment section below to weigh in.
