Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in Kansas City Chiefs fans. You can see all of the recent survey results here.

And be sure to check out DraftKings Sportsbook, the official sportsbook partner of SB Nation.

Chiefs’ fan confidence

Never mind that the team is almost certain to win an eighth straight AFC West championship. Following the team’s ugly 20-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Christmas Day, the confidence of Kansas City fans has fallen to a new low: just 10%.

Postseason expectations

Confidence is now so low that 10% of the team’s fans think the Chiefs will lose both of their last two games, missing the playoffs altogether — even though there’s only about a 1 in 50 chance that will happen. Still, a little more than one in three Kansas City fans believe the team will win at least one playoff game.

L’Jarius Sneed in 2024

Fans may not be confident in the team’s direction right now — but they certainly believe in the team’s fourth-year cornerback. More than nine in 10 fans think the Chiefs should give him a new contract in 2024.

Super Bowl favorites

It looks like the Baltimore Ravens33-19 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 16 made quite an impression on fans across the country. Almost half now believe the Ravens will reach — and win — the league championship. But we remind you: a regular-season matchup doesn’t always predict the result of a postseason rematch. See: Kansas City’s 27-24 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12 of 2020 — or the Chiefs’ 38-20 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Week 5 of 2021.

Week 17

As a group, NFL fans think the Chiefs will clinch the AFC West on Sunday afternoon — and they’d better, because fans also think the Raiders and Broncos will win their matchups.
