5 Reasons They Will Win It All

Cary Edmonson - USA Today Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the best teams in the NFL throughout the course of the regular season and that could be easily reflected with a Super Bowl win once it’s all said and done.

The team led by Andy Reid had a perfect record to start the season and they were 9-0 at one point; however, they struggled mightily in the second part of the campaign and made the playoffs with a 11-5 record that will put them in the Wild Card Round against the Indianapolis Colts, a team that already beat them a few weeks ago.

That doesn’t mean, however, that they can’t be considered as contenders to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy once the year is over.

The Chiefs have one of the best defensive units in the NFL. Even though they have been hampered by several injuries, with the return of key elements like Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, their secondary will only be even more dangerous.

They also have a star running back that is adept to make things happen on the offensive side of the ball, a great head coach that is eager to prove his doubters wrong and also a lot of players that are looking to make a deep playoff run.

The road won’t be easy, but the Chiefs definitively have enough weapons to make a lot of noise during the playoffs this year. Without further ado, please join me through this slideshow as we check five reasons why the Chiefs will end up winning the Super Bowl this season.

5. QB Alex Smith

The former San Francisco 49ers QB is looking for a sweet revenge after being traded during the offseason and it’s undeniable he has been playing better as the season advances. He will be ready for a deep postseason run and his game could end up being the difference maker between an early exit and a Super Bowl win.

4. Defense

The Chiefs’ calling-card is their defense, arguably one of the best in the whole NFL. They put a lot of pressure on the quarterback, they have excellent cornerbacks and their middle linebackers aren’t too shabby either. Defense ultimately wins championships and the Chiefs are looking to make that happen.

3. Experience against Denver Broncos

The Chiefs’ most difficult team towards the Super Bowl in the AFC is the Denver Broncos and even though the Chiefs lost both games against them in the regular season, they have enough experience to not repeat those mistakes during the playoffs.

2. Andy Reid's Head Coaching

After an unsuccessful season with the Philadelphia Eagles, Andy Reid signed with the Kansas City Chiefs and transformed from one of the worst teams in the league to a playoff contender in only one year. Reid has made some great progress on both sides of the ball with the Chiefs this season and the team has good chances of crowning this huge turnaround lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

1. RB Jamaal Charles

John Rieger - USA Today Sports

The main reason why the Chiefs could end up winning the Super Bowl is no other than star RB Jamaal Charles. Charles torched defenses late in the season – including a five-TD performance against the Oakland Raiders – while it’s unlikely to see him putting up huge numbers during the playoffs, he will be the main playmaker of the team. His ability to act as a runner or as a receiver is practically unmatched in the league. If he is on his game, the Chiefs will definitively be a tough team to beat.
