The Chiefs control their own destiny
Ultimately, the Chiefs are in total control of their own destiny. They control the narrative, and at the end of the season we might look back at this Week 2 loss as the wake-up call we needed to have. The Chiefs already have the pieces they need to succeed. With superstars on both sides of the ball, great coaching, and the experience of having done it all before, Kansas City are still primed for success.
And who’s to say they might not get even better? With the trade deadline still weeks away, general manager Brett Veach still has plenty of time to make deals to address his team’s biggest weaknesses. Veach has shown in the past that he is more than willing to make a splash to get the pieces his team needs, and there is no reason to think he wouldn’t do the same again this season with the Chiefs in the middle of their Super Bowl window.
The Chiefs will undoubtedly need to play better than they did on Sunday night. Week 1 showed that sometimes they can get away with playing poorly and still win, and Week 2 showed that sometimes they can’t. But at the end of the day, a Week 2 loss doesn’t change the fact that Kansas City is still one of the best teams in football, and Chiefs fans should feel great about that.
