The Kansas City Chiefs were picked 3rd on a list of teams chosen to win the Super Bowl this year.
The Kansas City Chiefs have all the talent in the world to and are looking to compete for another Super Bowl, but apparently some NFL executives, players, coaches, and scouts think a couple other teams are better suited to win it all this year.
According to a report by FanSided’s Matt Lombardo “over a dozen current coaches, executives, scouts, and players, including a pair of current NFL head coaches” gave their thoughts to FanSided when asked about the upcoming NFL season.
There were a range of questions and you really should check out the full report, but the most intriguing answers came up when the group was asked about which team would win the Super Bowl this season. The Kansas City Chiefs were not at the top of the list.
In fact, the Chiefs came in at third on the list, receiving four of the 18 possible votes. Who was leading the way?
Kansas City Chiefs: The Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tie for first among teams picked to win Super Bowl
Both the Buffalo Bills and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were picked over the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bills and Buccaneers were tied for first as both teams received six votes. The Chiefs are in third place thanks to their four votes while the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers come in tied for fourth with one vote each.
In addition to trying to make it back to the Super Bowl for the third consecutive year, the Kansas City Chiefs are also looking to win their second Super Bowl in three seasons. The Chiefs will have a solid chance to do that, but they’ll need to play up to their potential to be able to accomplish their goals this season.
Clearly there are several other teams who are looking to win a championship this season.
