Back door, side door, front door – the Chiefs get to the end zone just about any way they want with the array of talent head coach Andy Reid has at his disposal.
They have an All-Pro tight end in Travis Kelce, who’s on his way to another big season with 17 catches in the first three games.
Running back LeSean McCoy, signed after the Bills cut him, leads the Chiefs in rushing with 158 yards and a 5.4-yard per carry average.
Wide receiver Sammy Watkins, signed last year as a free agent, leads the team with 20 catches for 311 yards and three TDs.
The defense has improved – at least statistically through three games. They’ve given up 395.7 yards and 21.3 points per game compared to 405.5 yards and 26.3 points a year ago for the full 16 games.
But it’s the offense that will take the Chiefs where they want to go. They’re trying to get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 1969 season, when they beat the Vikings in Super Bowl IV.
They had a close call last year, losing in overtime to the Patriots in the AFC Championship.
In his first year as a full-time starter last season Mahomes passed for 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns with a passer rating of 113.8 to lead the Chiefs to a 12-4 won-loss record.
