The Kansas City Chiefs may have dropped the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs heading into the final week of the regular season, but they have won the AFC West and are heading to the playoffs. They can still come away with the No. 1 seed if the Tennessee Titans lose and the Chiefs win their final regular-season games. The Chiefs have had a bit of a roller-coaster season as they started out 3-4 and then won eight games in a row to then lose in Week 17 to the Cincinnati Bengals.
When it comes to the next offseason, the Chiefs have needs that they need to address on the defense. Their secondary has good pieces, but it seems to fall apart in the big games. If they can nab a lockdown corner, they will be dangerous for yet another season. They also need a strong second wide receiver. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill are as dangerous of a duo as we see in the NFL, but if they can finally find that next great second wide receiver, they could be even better than we have seen so far.
