In this edition, we learn that fans are newly confident in the team’s offensive line.
Chiefs fan confidence
After the Chiefs’ dominating 44-23 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, 97% of the team’s fans are once again confident about where the franchise is going.
The offensive line
It’s probably fair to say that the performance of Kansas City’s offensive line during the Week 7 victory is driving a lot of that newfound confidence. Three in five Chiefs fans think the unit has turned a corner.
Tuesday’s trade deadline
The trade to acquire wide receiver Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants might not have been the trade some fans had in mind (28% disapproved of it), but almost four in five wanted general manager Brett Veach to do something. And the GM might have yet another move up his sleeve.
After the Chiefs started the rookie running back in Sunday’s game — but split his carries with Clyde Edwards-Helaire — almost four out of five Chiefs fans want Isiah Pacheco to continue as the starter.
The best surprise team
NFL fans across the country were asked which of the teams that have had surprising success this season are — in the words of the late Kansas City head coach Marty Schottenheimer — the “real deal.” The Giants were the overwhelming choice over the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and Jacksonville Jaguars.
Washed-up veteran quarterbacks
NFL fans were also asked whether four longtime veteran quarterbacks are now on their last legs.
It’s not the first time that some of these players — particularly Brady — have been perceived this way. We’ll see if any of them can stage a comeback in the final half of the season.
