3. Yards Per Play

We know all about the Chiefs' issues in the red zones and the poorly timed turnovers, though underlying metrics still paint the picture of a successful NFL offense.

The Chiefs were ninth in yards per play (5.5) and put themselves in plenty of good positions, but made critical errors at bad times to keep points off the board. Whether it was drops or questionable play calls, something always popped up.

I think those problems will get fixed in the playoffs. Patrick Mahomes will lean on Travis Kelce and Rashee Rice, along with a healthy dose of Isiah Pacheco. There's no more time to mess around with Marquez Valdes-Scantling targets and I believe in this offense to put the ball in the hands of its playmakers.

It's been a frustrating year for Chiefs fans, though I'll take my chances with Mahomes, Kelce and Reid every time I get the opportunity.

The fact that the Chiefs still rank in the top 10 in yards per play indicates they've got the guys to win a championship.

I'm putting my money where my mouth is - Kansas City is winning its third Super Bowl in the last five seasons. Book it.
