The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl run which ended without a celebration. The team was denied a second consecutive Lombardi Trophy by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who bullied Patrick Mahomes all evening in a 31-9 beatdown.
The Chiefs took note of that game and made some offseason moves accordingly. Kansas City traded for T Orlando Brown and signed G Joe Thuney to bolster the offensive line. The team also added C Creed Humphrey and G Trey Smith via the draft.
Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl 56 odds: +500
For the Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much they need to tweak. Mahomes is the best QB in the league, Tyreek Hill is one of the best receivers in the league and Travis Kelce is the top TE. If Kansas City’s offense continues to put up numbers as it has in two seasons under Mahomes, there’s going to be very few teams who can beat the Chiefs.
One situation worth monitoring for Kansas City is Frank Clark, who was arrested on a gun possession charge. Clark is a key part of Kansas City’s underrated defense and will be a huge loss if he misses time this year.
