The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl season where they came back from a deficit of at least 10 points in all three playoff games. Most notable was the Divisional Round, where the Houston Texans gained a 24-0 lead early, only for the Chiefs to storm back and win 51-31 in a historic comeback. Talk about craziness. Speaking of craziness, here are five bold but somewhat realistic predictions for the Chiefs this season.
Is this the beginning of a new dynasty? With the Super Bowl winning Kansas City Chiefs, not losing any pieces, it will be difficult for the Broncos, Raiders, and Chargers to compete with them. However, the Broncos, Raiders, and Chargers, each made strides to improve their offenses. This division has the potential for some close and meaningful games to determine who makes the playoffs. With the 2020 schedule set, there are some significant games each AFC West team will play. With that said, this is an eight-part series where our Scorecrow NFL analysts do an early prediction of the wins and losses of each team. We projected all 256 games and have the winners and losers of each division!
With the 46th overall pick in the NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Kahele Jacoby (K.J.) Hamler, wide receiver, Penn State. Having already drafted wide receiver Jerry Jeudy in the first round with the 15th pick, president/general manager John Elway took another wide receiver to surround Drew Lock and pro bowl receiver Courtland Sutton.
The reigning Super Bowl champions look to become even more of a threat in 2020. Obviously, this is not a make-or-break draft for the Chiefs due to how good they already are, but there is a lot of talent in the draft that can make Kansas City unstoppable. Did they make the right moves to make them better now? Let’s get into the Kansas City Chiefs Draft Review.
With the 15th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama. The Broncos get the best wide receiver in the greatest wide receiver draft class in NFL history. After a legendary run at Alabama, Jeudy heads to Denver where he will form a one-two punch with Pro Bowl wide receiver Courtland Sutton. Let’s dig a little deeper on Denver’s newest wideout.
The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions. While most NFL teams have run rampant this offseason, the Chiefs have decided to “run it back.” They franchise tagged star defensive tackle Chris Jones, and re-signed receiver Demarcus Robinson, defensive tackle Mike Pennel, and fullback Anthony Sherman. The team also was able to restructure Sammy Watkins’ contract to free up another $5 million dollars in cap space.
The Kansas City Chiefs are your Super Bowl LIV champions! It took them 50 years to find their way back to the big game since beating the Minnesota Vikings back in 1970 but they did it spectacularly on their way to a fourth-quarter rally to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 for the win. The suffering of Chiefs fans is over and Andy Reid has officially locked himself into the Hall of Fame after finally grabbing his first Super Bowl victory as head coach.
We recap the Super Bowl as the Kansas City Chiefs (who are from Kansas) put up 21 unanswered in the fourth quarter to defeat the 49ers 31-20. Now that the NFL is done with until closer to draft time, we turn our focus on baseball and the XFL, which will premiere this week.
Super Bowl LIV will be between two of the best teams in the league. The NFC is represented by the San Francisco 49ers, while the AFC is represented by the Kansas City Chiefs. Over the last two weeks, we have heard every talking head in the country give their take for this game. However, The Scorecrow family is here to give our takes for the big game tonight. 11 of our writers have come together to give a winner, a final score, and their reasoning why. Without further ado, let’s see what our experts have to say.
Well, we have made it sports fans, the end of another NFL season. Two teams remain and they will meet later today to decide a champion. Earlier in the season, both teams had some major injury worries. When Patrick Mahomes dislocated his knee, you could hear a collective gasp in the sports community. But he is back under center for the Kansas City Chiefs. Continue reading →
After playing 20 games and going through a grueling season full of injuries and comebacks, the Chiefs and 49ers are here, in America’s biggest game, and on America’s biggest stage. Here lie the legacies of two storied franchises. The Kansas City Chiefs are trying to win a Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years, while the Niners trying to return to glory after a 25 year absence. Both teams are trying to erase the past, which they’d both love to forget for different reasons. The Niners are trying to erase the taste of their Super Bowl 47 defeat, and the Chiefs are trying to erase the taste or 25 years of being one or two games away from glory.
Welcome to Super Bowl Sunday. There will be all kinds of money switching hands so good luck with all your bets. If your Super Bowl squares don’t hit or your favorite prop bet didn’t go as planned maybe your DFS roster will win you some money back.
We react to the very tragic news that Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, were among nine people killed in a helicopter crash on Sunday. It’s the death of an icon, a legend, and for some people, a hero. There has never been the death of one single person that has shaken the world in our generation. Kobe brought so many people happiness throughout his life. He gave so many people so many memories. He changed the game when he was playing, he changed the game after he was playing, and he will forever change the game.
Two games left with a trip to the Superbowl for the victors. It has been an interesting playoff season so far and today’s games figure to have some excitement for sure. I will take a look at the AFC game in this article and the NFC game in a second article today. Continue reading →
It’s incredible to think that both of these teams are at this stage of the NFL playoffs given both were teams that should’ve been eliminated last week but overcame all the odds to get to this position. The Tennessee Titans have ridden Derrick Henry and their top-five defense to this point beating Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in New England then turning around and beating the number one team in all of football in the Baltimore Ravens to keep themselves alive. The Chiefs haven’t lost since Week 10, but they were close last week trailing by 24 before rallying in six minutes of game time and blitzing the Texans for 51 at home to advance and host this AFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 12:05 PT on CBS. Continue reading →
Championship Sunday. In my honest opinion, the best football day of the year. The Super Bowl is the most anticipated and obviously my favorite game of the year, but the fact that we get to enjoy the early part of the day, maybe even sleep in a little, and then get to watch two fantastic football games, that takes the cake for me.
After 19 weeks of football, we are down to the final four. The six seed Tennessee Titans and two seed Kansas City Chiefs will battle to represent the AFC while the one seed San Francisco 49ers and two seed Green Bay Packers will battle to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 54. Both games are rematches from the regular season with the Titans and 49ers pulling out the victory. Will the outcomes be the same Sunday? We shall see.
The Kansas City Chiefs will be hosting the Houston Texans at 3:05PM ET on Sunday, January 12th. The game will feature a rematch between the two teams who squared off earlier this season in week six where Houston emerged victorious 31-24. Continue reading →

The divisional round of the NFL playoffs is upon us. There are four games this weekend. I’ll be giving you my top plays for DraftKings four-game slate and my top plays for the Saturday and Sunday FanDuel slate. Let’s just jump right in. Here are my top players for this weekend’s playoff games.
The playoffs are a brutal time, your roster can be plagued by injuries, the players are tired, and the coaches are wary after five long months of football. A playoff bye does wonders for teams, first of all, it gives the team time to recuperate after at the very least seven straight weeks of football. It gives time for injured players to come back and it gives time to prepare and have a home playoff game in the divisional round. Most of all, it gives the players time to study film about the potential team they’ll be facing. Let’stake a look at the four teams who got a bye and why it is critical for them.
The football regular season is all but over. Welcome to the final week of the regular season where things get preseason-ish and downright wacky. The plan needs to be attacking players who we feel will have solidified roles, as many teams will be resting its starters for the postseason, or seeing what they have out of some of their youngsters for next year. Continue reading →
Two NFC powerhouses Traded blows in a brilliant night of football. Elsewhere, the Steelers and the Chiefs kept up their challenge in the AFC playoff picture. There is no better place to start this week’s NFL Week 14 Notebook than a shootout in the NFC. Continue reading →
It’s officially playoff time – unless you’re still in one of those really antiquated leagues that play through week 17. No matter the case, this column has two focuses – weeks 14 and 15. If you get to week 16, it’s a whole new game. Continue reading →
Back in 2013, James Dudko at Bleacher Report started a conversation about the efficiency rating of certain offensive personnel sets, and whether or not teams that favored one particular set had more efficient and productive offenses.
The Kansas City Chiefs head into Mexico City to face the Los Angeles Chargers. Mexico City gets its redemption in tonight’s game. Last year when the Chiefs were scheduled to play in Mexico City, the field conditions were not great so they moved the game to Los Angeles. That game ended up being a classic. I expect this game to be a great one as well. Here are my top players in this divisional matchup in Mexico. Continue reading →
The NFL is striving to extend its reach beyond the United States. The Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs battle in Mexico City to round off the last of five international games for the 2019 season. Monday Night Football has two teams competing for the AFC West. Can the Bolts get the better of the 2018 MVP?
As week ten becomes a distant memory and a Thursday night matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns looms on the horizon, let’s take a look at some of the best rookie performances from the past weekend. We saw several offensive skill position players flash while some defensive rookies proved the critics wrong. Who were the top dogs last week? Who has the best odds this weekend? Find out in this week’s edition of the NFL Rookie Rankings. As always let us start with a couple of honorable mentions. Continue reading →
Focus turns to the NFL playoff picture in this week’s edition of Woz’s NFL Notebook. The Baltimore Ravens dominated last week’s edition, and they are my team-of-the-week, but we start this week in the NFC. The NFL playoff picture is fascinating and there are many permutations. Teams with aspirations of playing football in January are fighting for every inch on the field. Continue reading →
The Lions came into this game thinking that a Chicago offense lead by Mitchell Trubiskywould at least put a band-aid on the problems that were on the defensive side. It turned out not to be true. While Trubisky only threw for 145 yards, the Lions secondary allowed him to throw for three touchdowns, and that’s all the Bears needed in a 20-13 victory over Detroit.
I thought maybe this would be the week where quarterbacks didn’t dominate this report, but sadly that is not the case. So without further comment let’s take a look at some players with injury issues both good and bad heading into the main slate of week ten games. Continue reading →
Welcome into the GPP/Tournament plays article for Week 10. Let’s start by saying, any picks used or mentioned for cash games can be played in tournaments. I think that’s an important thing to know and can sometimes get confused whenever the two are mentioned separately. For that reason, I’ve tried to avoid mentioning my cash game plays for this article. There’s merit to using or fading certain players in tournaments, whether it be ownership expectations, bust potential, etc. But, as I said earlier, just about all of the cash game plays are viable for tournaments. If you’d like to see who I like for those types of contests, you can check that out here. With that said, let’s get to some other picks I like for tournaments.
Another week of the NFL has passed and with the trade deadline headlining most of this week, it’s time to turn our attention back to what we saw over the weekend. Several offensive young guns have emerged back onto the scene and several defensive studs have continued their early dominance. One player is even making a case for Defensive Player of the Year. Who rose up to the challenge? Who fell short? Find out in this week’s edition of the Rookie Rankings. As always, let’s start with a couple of honorable mentions. Continue reading →
There was a ton of movement in the weekly rankings this week. The one constant in the NFL seems to be the Patriots while the 49ers are legit and the Ravens might be the biggest threat to the Patriots in the AFC.
Week seven of the NFL season kicked off Thursday night with the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs mixing it up on the playing field. Unfortunately for the Chiefs, the 2019 starting quarterback curse came to visit starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes was injured in the second quarter of the game when he suffered a dislocated patella. Continue reading →
Another divisional matchup is set in store for us on Thursday Night. The reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs head to Mile High to face the Denver Broncos. The Chiefs have lost two games in a row after starting off 4-0. The Broncos had a rough start going 0-4 but they have now won two in a row. One of these streaks has to give so without further ado, here are my top players and predictions for this divisional matchup.
Last week’s Thursday night game between the New York Giants and the New England Patriots was a closer game than many expected, at least till the fourth quarter. Eventually, the Patriots won 35-14 as the defense scored two touchdowns to match Tom Brady‘s two rushing touchdowns. While the game wasn’t full of fantasy points, Golden Tate and Julian Edelman joined Brady and the Patriots D/ST as the only players to score more than 14 fantasy points in the game. Hopefully, tonight’s game offers more big-time fantasy scorers.
There’s no shortage of talking points from Week 6 of the NFL. This edition of my notebook features several quarterbacks making the headlines for different reasons. The Los Angeles Chargers stink, Dan Quinn’s seat is hot and the Carolina Panthers pound the ground in London. Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate, and a brilliant San Francisco 49ers performance concludes this edition of Woz’s NFL notebook. Continue reading →

I have some good news, it’s not a quarterback heavy report this week. Unfortunately, it is a running back heavy one instead. And there is actually some good news on the quarterback front finally. Let’s take a look at some of the injury issues teams are facing on Sunday. Continue reading →
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. We had a solid week, for the most part, correctly highlighting Michael Thomas, Will Fuller, Leonard Fournette, and the Carolina Panthers defense as solid plays. However, you aren’t here to reminisce about last week. Continue reading →
The 2019 NFL season is already a quarter of the way finished and team’s identity are starting to shape into form. At this point, there are only three undefeated teams left in the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs and surprisingly the San Francisco 49ers. Meanwhile, there are six winless teams and almost half the league is sitting at 2-2. If this course continues, the playoff race will be as exciting as ever, but what have we learned over the first quarter of the season? The Scorecrow family has put together another roundtable giving you their opinions on five NFL questions. Be sure to follow all the writers on twitter and ask any questions you may have regarding their answers. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Through four weeks of the 2019 NFL season, 29 teams have lost at least one game, but there are three elite teams who haven’t lost a game. Those three teams being the New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and Kansas City Chiefs. In today’s article, I will go over how they got here and how long their undefeated streaks may last.
