The offensive line of the Kansas City Chiefs is considered to be one of the best in the league as it comprises superstar QB Patrick Mahomes, former league MVP, and TE Travis Kelce. The team might have to deal with the loss of wide-receiver Tyreek Hill who signed with the Miami Dolphins in the last off-season. But their offense is built in a structure that provided enough help to the QB to score points easily. The Chiefs lack good edge rushers on the team, but they drafted George Karlaftis in this year’s draft and would be hoping to uplift their game from this position.
The Chiefs have won the Super Bowl twice i.e 1969 and 2019. They were also the back-to-back AFC Champions in 2019 and 2020.
