Last year the Kansas City Chiefs should’ve went to the Super Bowl but Dee Ford was flagged for an offsides penalty. And that helped the New England Patriots advance. Fast forward to now though and the Patriots have been eliminated from the playoffs. Therefore you know the Chiefs are licking their chops because this is their best shot at winning it all. Of course they’ll have to get past the Houston Texans first and that won’t be an easy task. The Chiefs should win that game but Deshaun Watson will certainly present a challenge. Even if Kansas City does move on to the AFC Championship they still could run into the Baltimore Ravens. But it’s still is a huge relief that Bill Belichick isn’t in the picture anymore because we know how good the Patriots have been. The Ravens, Texans, and Chiefs are all offensive teams and Belichick has made his name off neutralizing those kind of opponents.
Just last year New England blanketed the Sean McVay led Rams to win their 6th Super Bowl ring. Patrick Mahomes can rest a little bit easier knowing he won’t have to deal with that stress and now he must realize the opportunity in front of him. This is his chance to put his name in the history books and get his future Hall of Fame career up and running. If he’s truly the next great quarterback in the National Football League then the Lombardi is heading back to Missouri because this is their time.
