Welcome to AG’s first ever King of the Hill! In these weekly articles we’ll be tracking the best regular season NFL team.
How will that be determined? Well it won’t be something as simple as record or point differential. No, to be the best you have to beat the best. Since this is the first season of doing this, we’ll start with last year Superbowl Champion, the Kansas City Chiefs as Kings. To begin the season, they get to wear the crown. For another team to take the crown from them, they simply have to beat them in a head-to-head matchup. Then the team that beat them gets to wear the crown until another team beats them, and then that team gets to wear the crown. This goes on until the end of the season (or post season if the crown wearer makes it that far).
A few rules before we begin:
Rule #1 – Ties go to the crown wearer
Rule #2 – You lose the crown, even if you are “resting” starters.
Rule #3 – If the team that has the crown fails to make the post-season, the game is over, and they are the winners.
Who Has The Crown?
The Kansas City Chiefs
How Did They Get It?
Beating the 49ers 31-20 and winning Super Bowl LIV last year
Who Have They Beaten To Defend It?
Who Is Their Next Opponent?
The Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs are 63-56-1 against the Chargers. The Chiefs are 11-1 in their last twelve game including winning both games against the bolts last year, holding on 24-17 in Mexico City and claiming an important bye week 31-21 in the last game of the season.
Here’s to hoping these articles just become a documentation of how the Chiefs went a perfect 19-0.
