Win Total: 10.5 Over (+130) / Under (-150)
A year after Mahomes erupted into stardom by throwing for 50 touchdowns and more than 5,000 yards, chances are that he might not be able to duplicate those gaudy numbers … particularly if the indefinitely suspended Tyreek Hill is no longer part of the team.
But the more pertinent chances are that he’ll be an improved quarterback regardless of what the numbers say and as pivotal or more to the Chiefs’ Super Bowl hopes.

“It ripped our hearts out when he got released from Kansas City,” Travis Kelce told reporters at Jarvis Landry’s celebrity softball game in Eastlake Ohio. “But to see him get another chance, I would hope and I would think he’s going to make the absolute most of it.”
Patrick Mahomes rightfully deserves every ounce of credit he got last year, but Kelce may have somehow been an underrated part of one of the best offenses we’ve ever seen. He can stretch the field, he can offer a big target in the red zone, he can block. I have no doubt I can build a potent offense around him. —Mitch Goldich

“Everything -- how short, and how far, we came,” Jackson told the Chicago Sun Times’ Patrick Finleywhen asked what will keep him motivated through the summer respite. “From the losing record to the winning record. How short we came, with the first-round playoff game with the field goal. Right now we just want to build off everything and let that be the fuel to our fire. We plan on taking this whole thing.”
