Kansas City confidence
Whether or not the Chiefs are back might be something that remains up for debate, but one thing is for sure after this poll — the fan base believes again, with the confidence number growing to 91% (from 58% last week) following the Chiefs’ 41-14 win over the Raiders in Las Vegas.
Could we see it grow to 100% next poll? If the Chiefs can handle the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, there is a good chance. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Chiefs are currently 2.5-point favorites over the Cowboys.
Reacts national voting
The Chiefs actually cracked the top of the list for desired Super Bowl matchups among NFL fans: 12% of league-wide fans would like to finally see Patrick Mahomes vs. Aaron Rodgers.
This one seems obvious — the Carolina Panthers weren’t going to give Cam Newton $4.5 million guaranteed to sit on the bench behind PJ Walker.
I found these results much more surprising than those regarding Newton. New England Patriots rookie quarterback Mac Jones has looked the part, though only 52% of league-wide fans think he is the long-term answer for Bill Belichick at quarterback.
