Right now seems to be prediction time in the NFL. Can this team win the Super Bowl? Will these players win the quarterback battle? Which rookies will surprise?

It’s no different for the Chiefs as they have many questions surrounding the upcoming season. Will Marcus Peters make an impact during his rookie campaign? What will the offensive line look like when the season starts? Can the Chiefs hang with the AFC West’s best?

Some articles on this site and around the web tackles those questions.
