What we learned in KC Chiefs loss: The offense can be stopped
I’m a big fan of The Dan Patrick Show and last week he made a comment about how we’ve seen great offenses stopped, or slowed down, in Super Bowls. His examples were the “Greatest Show on Turf”, the 16-0 Patriots, and the 2018 Rams and this was something that we saw play out once again on Sunday.
No one — and I mean no one — thought the Chiefs were only going to score nine points in Super Bowl LV. If someone had told me that was the final amount of points they scored, I’d have assumed that something happened to Patrick Mahomes because nine points from an explosive offense is ridiculous.
The 2020 Chiefs offense was considered one of the best in the league — if not the best — and the Buccaneers shut them down completely. Yes, the offensive line was beat up (and let’s not overreact to how poorly they played please, this was a weird situation) but the Bucs defended the Chiefs’ two best weapons really well. No other Chiefs playmakers were able to step up and that’s something the team needs to look into this offseason.
What we learned in KC Chiefs loss: Dynasty will have to wait
So many people thought that the Chiefs would be the dynasty of the 2020s and that’s still entirely possible! We’re only in 2021, giving the Chiefs eight years to win a few Super Bowls and be the NFL’s next great dynasty. Unfortunately, it’s going to have to wait.
Personally, the whole dynasty talk was annoying to me. Let’s wait and see how the next few years play out before we pin them as the next great dynasty.
