NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Many of you here at Arrowhead Pride began voting on various things concerning the Kansas City Chiefs and matters across the NFL last year and this past offseason.

  • Chiefs fans’ confidence remained right 98% following the team’s 33-28 win against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3. Fan confidence dipped to 94% after the close call against the Detroit Lions.
