A lot can change in a week, eh?
After a wild Sunday in NFL Week 6 that saw the Jets topple the Eagles and the PJ Walker-led Browns defeat the 49ers, no undefeated teams remain. The Kansas City Chiefs are back atop the NFL standings and look as good a bet as any to win the Super Bowl.
In fact, the chaotic Week 6 results prove the Chiefs will hoist their second straight Lombardi trophy this February.
NFL Week 6 Proves the Chiefs Will Win the Super Bowl
The Chiefs currently have the second-best odds to win the Super Bowl, trailing only the 49ers, but Sunday showed why Kansas City should be the outright favorite.
I wondered when cracks would show in San Francisco's armor, then the team promptly suffered injuries to Christian McCaffrey, Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel. Brock Purdy was forced to win a game without his spectacular supporting cast and he looked terrible.
Purdy finished just 12/27 for 125 yards with two turnovers. If any of those players have to miss extended time, the 49ers should be worried. Cleveland's defense is excellent, but the early returns on Purdy excelling without his support were poor.
In the AFC, Buffalo limped by a miserable Giants team missing Daniel Jones, the Bengals still look out of sorts and the Dolphins trailed by 14 early against Carolina before rattling off a victory. Given the Chiefs' balance and depth across the board, it's easy to feel confident about Kansas City's chances against the rest of the league.
The Chiefs' defense has been spectacular and now gets Charles Omenihu back from suspension. Murmors persist that Frank Clark will soon join the team as well, giving Steve Spagnuolo another capable pass rusher.
Despite a series of mistakes and sloppy play, Kansas City's offense ranks near the top of the NFL too. We can expect Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid to improve over the course of the season and cut down the mishaps. Once that happens, there's not a team in NFL that will match the Chiefs' balance.
Our fans have understandably been concerned, but every contender has series issues to deal with. Given what happened on Sunday, the Chiefs can reclaim their throne. Kansas City has its issues, but they're as well-positioned as anyone to win another Super Bowl by the end of the year.
