The Kansas City Chiefs have high expectations for the 2016 season.  However, this team does have some concerns.  The Chiefs need some young players to step up and play major roles this season to meet those expectations.

The San Diego Chargers provide an interesting early test for the Chiefs.  While expectations in San Diego are not high, this team does have some weapons.  The Chargers can score points if Philip Rivers is given time to work.  The Chiefs need to come out this week and establish themselves as the better.

The Chiefs have a tough schedule early on this year, so winning their opener is important.  The Chiefs probably cannot afford a similar open to the season that we saw in 2015.  This team needs to come out much stronger in 2016 and establish itself early on.
