The Kansas City Chiefs put up quite a performance against the Cincinnati Bengals that showed us a lot. Here is what we learned in preseason week two.

It was an excellent preseason performance for the Kansas City Chiefs as they beat the Bengals 30-12. The Chiefs jumped on their opponents early on, and simply outplayed them all night. It was the kind of game that should give coaches, players, and fans a lot of confidence heading into the regular season.

There were only a few snags all night for Kansas City. They kept the Bengals out of the endzone all night. Meanwhile, each Chiefs quarterback to throw a pass ended up with a touchdown. KC was able to run and throw the ball practically at will against Cincinnati.

Of course, the thing that has everyone in Chiefs Kingdom excited right now is that Patrick Mahomes threw a pair of touchdown passes. The rookie quarterback is continuing to play well, and you can almost feel the excitement in Kansas City right now.

Learning Process

As we get closer to the start of the 2017 season, we are learning more and more about this Kansas City Chiefs team. That’s the important part of preseason football. Scores are generally meaningless, it is all about seeing how the team plays. In that regard, the Chiefs coaching staff has to be feeling good.

There are still some questions left to be answered, but Kansas City is definitely getting closer. This is a team that has looked very solid early on in preseason. That should be expected from a 12-4 team returning most of its roster. This 2017 Chiefs team looks like they will be a very tough opponent.
