This is the same question we’ve had about the Kansas City Chiefs for the past three and a half years. Can they beat the elite teams...
"Can they match the elite teams in the #NFL when they have to outscore somebody" - Ian Eagle's biggest question surrounding the #Chiefs— 610 Sports Radio- KC (@610SportsKC) November 9, 2016
The Chiefs have struggled against elite quarterbacks (even though, as Deion Sanders said, they have one themselves). That’s been well-documented. What’s encouraging is these past few weeks when the Chiefs have beaten Derek Carr, Drew Brees and Andrew Luck. We can argue about the quality of the rest of their teams but beating those quarterbacks is something to feel good about.
The Chiefs won those games because of a superior defensive effort. If they’re playing at this level defensively in December and January they won’t need to outscore anyone.
