2. Kansas City Cheifs

The Kansas City Chiefs are a team loaded with young talent that actually reminds me, and probably scores of other fans of some vintage Philadelphia Eagles squads from the later Andy Reid-era.

Gee, I wonder why?

With an absolute burner on the outside in Tyreek Hill, a do-it-all running back in Kareem Hunt, a Kelce in Jason’s brother Travis, and arguably the most exciting young quarterback in the league (sorry Carson), there’s a whole lot to like in this iteration of Reid’s second act, and he may finally find his way back to a deep postseason run with this collection of players.

And really, could it happen to a nice coach?

After watching his protegé Doug Pederson win a Super Bowl in only his second season as a head coach, on his former team no less, it looks like Reid, one of the most tenured coaches in the entire league, could finally have his time to shine after almost half a decade coaching Rob Riggle’s favorite football team.

Could you imagine watching an Eagles-Chiefs Super Bowl in three(ish) months? I don’t think the City of Brotherly Love would even be standing after a game like that. With KC currently sitting pretty at 7-1, at least half of that scenario is very likely to happen.
