The Kansas City Chiefs Will Look to Play Flawless on Offense
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was awarded AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month. The former MVP has been playing just that MVP caliber football. In December, Mahomes has led the Chiefs to a perfect 4-0 record which is a part of their eight-game winning streak. In that stretch, they also secured another AFC West title and hold the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoff picture. Mahomes threw for 1,100 yards with eight touchdowns.
The Chiefs will need another stellar performance from not only Mahomes but the rest of the offense. Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire exited the previous game with a collarbone injury and will be week-to-week, but look for Darrel Williams, and Derrick Gore to step up in a big way. The Chiefs will also be getting tight end Travis Kelce back after being placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list.
I would expect the Chiefs to take advantage of the Bengals pass defense that has given up 3,792 yards, which comes out to an average of 252.8 yards per game. The Bengals’ defense has allowed 324 points for an average of 21.6 points per game in 2021. The Chiefs’ offense will need to put the pedal down, and not let up to secure a victory.
