Kansas City Chiefs fans are right to be upset, but there is still plenty of season left
Chiefs’ fans are justified in being upset at the Sunday night loss. It was a game that the Chiefs should have won, and one that did not make the Chiefs look great. If the Chiefs just decide to not get at all better this season then they are not going to make it to their fourth straight AFC Championship game.
However, that is not how NFL football works. Coaches and players work every single day to get better during the season. Especially early in the season.
Andy Reid and company are some of the best at making sure this happens as well. In 2015, the Chiefs opened the season 1-5 but would go on to win 10 straight, win a wildcard game, and push the New England Patriots to the brink in the divisional round. In 2019, the Chiefs lost 3 of four games, as well as lost Patrick Mahomes to a knee injury, and then won a Super Bowl less than four months later.
Patrick Mahomes is just as competitive as we all learned Michael Jordan was a few summers ago, just without the attitude issues. He will carry this loss with him and make some teams despise the Ravens for angering the monster inside the former NFL and Super Bowl MVP.
One regular-season loss does not end a season, especially with the personnel and talent the Chiefs’ have.
