The Chargers Have Improved but Still Aren’t Serious Threats to the Chiefs | si.com
The Kansas City Chiefs have sat atop the AFC West for five consecutive seasons. That shouldn’t change in 2021.

We thought that was a bit low and apparently, Touchdown Wire’s Mark Schofield did too. This time around the Chiefs ranked as the No. 2 team in the NFL, falling just behind the team that defeated them in Super Bowl LV.
