Just when some people thought the Kansas City Chiefs were no longer the team to beat, Andy Reid and company proved them all wrong.
The HC put up a masterpiece in the second half of the Super Bowl, showing Nick Sirianni that he still has plenty to learn and that he’s still one of the best in business despite his age.
Patrick Mahomes was once again at his best, completing all but one of his throws in the second half to cap off a rally and come back from a ten-point deficit.
And Travis Kelce proved to be at least one tier above the rest by wreaking havoc in the open field, no matter how many times he was double-teamed.
So, with the Super Bowl in the rearview mirror, the Chiefs are already the oddsmakers’ favorites to win the big game again next season.
Notably, if you were to ask former NFL player Ross Tucker, that shouldn’t come as a surprise at all, as they’re going to be the team to beat in the league for the foreseeable future:
“As far as I’m concerned, the Chiefs are the Super Bowl favorites for the foreseeable future,” Tucker said on The Dan Patrick Show. “I mean, [Patrick] Mahomes is the best player by a decent amount. What Andy Reid did in the second half was masterful. I mean, masterful. Went against tendencies multiple times. (…) and Brett Veach, their GM, the Draft they had this year is ridiculous.”
"The #Chiefs are the #SuperBowl for the foreseeable future."
Do you agree with @RossTuckerNFL?

Perhaps the biggest point of those named by Tucker is the last one.
GM Brett Veach put up a masterclass in the offseason, bringing in 24 new players and finding plenty of value with every single one of their draft picks.
Their much-improved secondary and rookie RB Isiah Pacheco wound up playing huge roles in the team’s success, and they’ll be locked in on team-friendly deals for years to come.
So, yeah, the Chiefs aren’t going anywhere.NEXT: Rob Gronkowski Gives An Honest Opinion About Patrick Mahomes
