It would appear that Sports Illustrated’s Peter King is jumping on the Chiefs bandwagon. Just a week after picking them to get blown out at home to the San Diego Chargers, he has now placed the undefeated Chiefs in his weekly “Fine Fifteen”.
13. Kansas City (2-0). The Chiefs, 30th in team defense last year, have allowed 28 points in eight quarters — and scored one defensive touchdown, on Brandon Flowers‘ interception return for a touchdown. That’s progress.
I don’t think anyone really expects the defense to keep teams to these sort of numbers all year, but it’s a great place to start and considering the state of the Chiefs defense, this sort of effort has been necessary.
If the Chiefs can send the 49ers home from Arrowhead with a loss, I wonder if Kansas City could jump into the top 10. Wouldn’t that be something?
