It’s arduous to consider that the defending Good Bowl champion Kansas Metropolis Chiefs may enhance
The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs have solely carried out one sport contained all by the 2020 widespread season, nonetheless it fully was a dominating victory over the Houston Texans (a playoff crew from the 2019 season) and left all of us questioning merely how contained all by the heck this crew obtained BETTER from their Good Bowl-winning crew we seen on the sphere seven months before now.
The Chiefs didn’t lose tons expertise from their 2019 Good Bowl roster
Not solely did the Chiefs not lose tons expertise this offseason, nonetheless they added actually good avid avid gamers. All of us seen firsthand merely how elite first-round rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire may bigger than most likely be contained all by the NFL and he now gives the Chiefs one disadvantage they didn’t have remaining yr, which is a dominant run sport.
Working the ball wasn’t the Chiefs’ forte remaining yr, as they achieved the season contained all through the underside half of the league when it acquired correct acceptable right correct proper right here to their dashing assault. Nonetheless, that’s largely what the Chiefs relied on in Thursday’s sport, as Patrick Mahomes solely threw for 203 yards.
Having Edwards-Helaire contained all by the backfield now means opponents have each Mahomes and his massive assortment of weapons to cease together with a shifty working as shortly as further who can evade tacklers like no particular explicit particular person’s enterprise. The Texans couldn’t get off the sphere, and extended drives wore the protection down immensely. Such a way is a weapon Andy Reid can use every time important.
Kansas Metropolis furthermore carried out effectively defensively irrespective of not having their beginning cornerback and shedding their totally fully totally fully completely completely different beginning nook close to the as shortly as further half of the sport. They’d been smothering Deshaun Watson all evening extended, and if their security performs this effectively all season extended, they’ll be succesful to strengthen upon their spectacular top-10 rating from remaining yr.
The Kansas Metropolis Chiefs had been favorites to win the Good Bowl coming into the 2020 season on account of what they achieved in 2019, nonetheless now they’re attempting like an fairly bigger unit than the one we watched hoist the Lombardi Trophy earlier this yr.
