Kansas City’s schedule this year is ranked as the NFL’s 16th-toughest, as its opponents combined for a .502 winning percentage in 2023. The Chiefs open the season at home in the annual Kickoff Game in an AFC title rematch vs. Baltimore as 3-point favorites. y. The Chiefs are currently slated to play in eight standalone games, including five primetime contests, with Arrowhead Stadium playing host to six. The overall slate features nine games vs. opponents with winning records in 2023 and seven games vs. opponents who made the 2023 playoffs.

Another Year, Another Title

There were definitely times last year that the Kansas City offense didn’t look good enough to win another Super Bowl, as the team was just 8-5 at one point. But the Chiefs closed with 11 wins to take yet another AFC West title – although it certainly helped that the rest of the division underachieved. The eight straight AFC West titles is the second-longest streak of division championships for any team since 1970. Only the New England Patriots, who recorded 11 consecutive AFC East championships from 2009-19, compiled a longer streak.

But Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs appear to be able to flip a switch in the playoffs. They easily handled visiting Miami 26-7 in the Wild-Card Round on an freezing day. Mahomes threw for 262 yards, found Rashee Rice eight times for 130 yards and a touchdown.

In the Divisional Round, Mahomes played his first-ever true road playoff game in Buffalo and the Chiefs won 27-24 in an upset as Mahomes threw two touchdown passes to Travis Kelce. It was the third time in the past four seasons that KC eliminated Buffalo with the first two wins coming at home in the 2020 AFC championship game and the 2021 divisional round.

Then the Chiefs went to Baltimore for the AFC title game and pulled off another upset 17-10. Kelce caught 11 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown, and Mahomes went 30 of 39 for 241 yards and a touchdown.

Then in Super Bowl LVIII, the Chiefs upset the 49ers 25-22 in overtime to become the first team since the 2004 New England Patriots to repeat as champions – and it was only the second Super Bowl to reach OT and ninth repeat champion overall. Mahomes threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman in overtime. The Chiefs trailed 22-19 after Jake Moody kicked a 27-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime for SF.

Mahomes and Coach Andy Reid are now halfway to Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, who won a record six championships in 20 years together with New England. The 28-year-old Mahomes also became the fourth starting QB to win three Super Bowls — joining Brady, Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw and Troy Aikman — and second-youngest.

What Roster Moves Wer Done For This Season?

The two biggest offseason moves for KC were keeping both Kelce and star defensive lineman Chris Jones with new deals. Kelce, who became MUCH more famous in 2023 as Taylor Swift’s boyfriend – she attended many games in person, including the Super Bowl – got a two-year deal with nearly $35 million. Kelce, who has been selected to nine consecutive Pro Bowls and is a four-time first-team All-Pro, had 93 receptions for 984 yards and five touchdowns last season. He also became the NFL’s all-time receptions leader in the playoffs with 165, passing Jerry Rice.

Jones got a five-year deal and $95 million guaranteed. Jones came back on a revised one-year deal in 2023, totaled 10.5 sacks on the season, was named first-team All-Pro, won his third Super Bowl and now becomes the highest-paid defensive tackle based on average annual salary in NFL history. How important is Jones to that defense? Last season, the Chiefs allowed 4.3 yards per play when he was on the field (would rank first in the NFL), but that increased to 5.5 yards per play when he was off it (23rd).

Kansas City also got Mahomes another weapon in receiver Marquise Brown, signing him to a one-year deal. The Chiefs beat the 49ers for their second straight title despite one of the least productive wide receiver groups in the NFL. The rookie Rice (79 catches, 938 yards, 7 TDs) developed into a strong option in the passing game, but the Chiefs otherwise were left to rely on journeymen and stopgaps as they chased another title. Mahomes completed 77% of his passes, with six passing touchdowns and no interceptions when targeting Rice; that number dropped to 57% when targeting any other wide receiver.

Defensively, the Chiefs took a few hits in the secondary in trading L’Jarius Sneed and losing Willie Gay. It was Sneed who punched the ball from the grasp of Ravens receiver Zay Flowers right before he crossed the goal-line in the AFC Championship Game in January, a key play in KC’s win. Sneed is one of only two NFL players (Harrison Smith, Minnesota) over the last four years to register at least 10 interceptions and 6.5 sacks. But he needed a new contract and the Chiefs couldn’t afford it.
