There has been a lot of talk about the Kansas City Chiefs this season, and not all has been positive.
Despite just two losses in the first half of the season, there’s a feeling that Andy Reid’s team isn’t as dominant as it used to be.
Ironically, for the first time since Patrick Mahomes has been there, Steve Spagnuolo’s defense ranks among the best in the league.
However, their offense hasn’t been nearly half as explosive as it’s been most of the time, and a lot of that has had to do with their subpar supporting cast.
Nonetheless, Chiefs star Travis Kelce recently stated that he has the utmost confidence in this current group of players, adding that he believes the team has every single piece it needs to contend at the highest level (via Harold R. Kuntz).
Travis Kelce: "This team has every piece that it needs to be great. Everybody can talk about whatever they want to talk about that's our weakness. I know that we got a team that can put points up."

The Chiefs will get a great chance to prove that by taking down the Miami Dolphins and their offensive juggernaut in Germany.
The defense has played well enough for them to feel confident in their ability to, at least, keep Tua Tagovailoa in check.
Still, they might not have enough firepower on the other side of the field to keep up with their big plays and offensive explosions.
The lack of talent around him has led Mahomes to force things and make some mistakes, turning the ball over at an alarming rate by his standards.
Then again, one should know better than to count this team out, especially considering the fact that they still manage to find ways to win games.NEXT: Patrick Mahomes Gets Honest On Facing Tyreek Hill For The First Time
