    The offseason hasn’t even happened so this is early

    But if the Chiefs offense remains elite, and the defense improves, they become possibly the most complete team.

    Honestly, they were the only team to really come close to beating the Pats all playoffs. New England had a pretty dominant postseason run.

    Chiefs had a great year, but you'll see a lot of teams try to copy what NE did and Mahomes and that offense are not going to be as special.

    I don't know about that--even the Patriots only made it work for one half. IMO Mahomes is special, and likely to be for a long time.

    Most teams aren’t New England.

    The Patriots shutdown the Chargers and totally stopped the Rams. What the Patriots do can’t just be mimicked by other teams. Pats currently have the premier defense in the NFL.

    KC needs to improve as does the quarterback but he was still the best one New England faced all playoffs

    IMAGINE people saying that New England would have one of the scariest defenses in the league at the beginning of the season.

    Mahomes having another year of experience is the key to the minor difference between KC and the other three.

    Bettors are simply believing that the top four teams will continue through next season.

    People are waaaaay too quick to annoint the next QB... The "next QBs" like Romo, for instance, are not even all still in the League. Kap, Rivers, Carson, RGIII... all useless.

    I'm only open to "I think Mahomes will be a good QB" atm... people should hold on a few years. And soon, that guy is gonna make so much $$$ that KC will be dead. They won't have the JMac, KVN types... and someone will take advantage. Like BB does.

    I think the Pats exposed Mahomes, take away his option and pressure him and he can’t get rid of the ball fast enough.
    I think the Broncos might have a rebound year in that division next year.

    Teams were trying to figure out how to stop him all season and they finally figured them out.

    this is only Westgate though.

    according to other casinos the Patriots are co-favorites or outright favorites.

    Wasn’t Wentz supposed to be the next special QB? I seem to remember the blather from a couple seasons ago.

    You have to give it more time.

    Yes, we had the highest odds of any team last off-season. I think that more to do with how Vegas viewed the AFC vs NFC though.

    Offseason doesn't begin for another month. Mahomes will get experience. But as I mentioned, their schedule will be much tougher. They were blowing out teams for much of 2018. That normally doesn't happen two straight years.

    There is always a few teams that dissapoint. Then there's teams that surprise everyone.

    Hard to argue with, Chiefs are still loaded. It’ll be us and them again.

    KC will lose almost no one. The Pats are in danger of losing 3-4 key players. I think it makes sense to give KC the nod right now.
