“Running it Back” with the Chiefs


Brandon Yang

While there are a few missing pieces from last year’s championship team KC’s core has mostly remained intact this year. Patrick Mahomes, Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce leading the electric Chiefs’ offense, and Chris Jones, Frank Clark, and Tyrann Mathieu anchoring the Tomahawk Nation’s defense. Though they aren’t without injuries either as almost their entire starting offensive line will miss the game.

Coming into the game the Chiefs are winners of 16 of their 18 total games so far this year and need one more game to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since the Patriots did it in 2004 and 2005. The two losses the Chiefs suffered were to the Oakland Raiders and the LA Chargers respectively. However, their loss with the Chargers can be attributed to the HC Andy Reid’s decision to bench his starters that game. While there is officially a pair of losses on Kansas City’s record they won’t be short of confidence coming into the game.

Regarding the game plan, the Chiefs are primarily known for their explosive pass-heavy offense. The team can put points on the board fast and easy but this strength can also be their biggest weakness. Due to their erratic attacks deep down the field, they can also go stretches without scoring and run the risk of stalling out early and often. If Mahomes and his crew can find their rhythm early in the game few teams on this planet can keep up with them.

In conclusion, the Chief’s are coming into the game as hot as can be and hungry to repeat their dream season. They will look to get hot early and outscore the Buc’s offense to put them away one more time. Will Patrick Mahomes and co bring another Lombardi trophy back to Kansas City? Tune in on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. to find out.
