After a superstar athlete like Tyreek Hill left the Kansas City Chiefs, the team was left to fill the massive hole that he left.
While nobody can replace Hill’s athleticism, the Chiefs did all they could to provide Patrick Mahomes with new skill position players.
One of the players that they signed was Marquez Valdes-Scantling, who had an instant impact on this offense.

Valdes-Scantling, or MVS, was interviewed ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Mahomes and MVS will have their work cut out for them, considering the staunch defensive play of James Bradberry and Darius Slay.
Slay and Bradberry are two of the league’s best defenders, and they both happen to be members of the Philadelphia Eagles.
Ahead of this matchup, MVS remains confident, knowing that the Chiefs offense has been dominant all season, and they will look to continue that in their final game of the season.
During the regular season, MVS was a great role player for the Chiefs, as he contributed 42 receptions for 687 yards and two touchdowns.
He had a breakout game in the AFC Championship, putting up six catches for 116 yards, and adding a touchdown.
Mahomes continues to make the weapons around him better, even if they aren’t the blue-chip talent that Hill was for the team.
With a combination of MVS, Travis Kelce, and JuJu Smith-Schuster, the Chiefs should have a fighting chance against the Eagles, who have consistently been one of the NFL’s top defenses.
