The journey to defend begins here.
The Kansas City Chiefs were unsuccessful in their last bid to “run it back.” This offseason there have been no slogans, but there has been a focus on strengthening positions of need and creating greater depth than ever before in Patrick Mahomes’ tenure as the starter, especially on the defensive side.
How will the regular season shake out? The Chiefs are all over primetime this year with dates on Thursdays, Sundays, and Mondays. They’re also taking over Christmas Day and even taking their show on the road to Germany for their first-ever game in mainland Europe.
The AFC looks incredibly stacked this year, which is going to make it tough to claim another top seed, but that’s true of every team and the Chiefs have hosted the conference title game for five consecutive seasons, so perhaps we should stop doubting them. We’ll find out soon enough when the Detroit Lions pull into the parking lot at Arrowhead for the season opener on September 7.
