Elite playmakers on both sides of the ball, the leading rusher in the NFL, an endzone monster, and a takeaway machine of a defense. These are the necessities to win a Superbowl and the reason that the Chiefs will do just that. The Kansas City Chiefs have gone 47 years without winning the Superbowl, but this is their year.

Alex Smith’s versatility is the reason he is the best NFL QB according to the traditional passer system. Smith has thrown 8 touchdowns without any turnovers in the first 4 games of the 2017 season. Smith also managed to score a rushing touchdown using his speed as the sixth fastest starting QB in the NFL.

The Chiefs 3rd round draft pick Kareem Hunt has broken out in the first four games of the season. He has 659 yards in 4 games, making him the leading rusher in the NFL. Hunt has 140 more rushing yards than any other player. Andy Reid’s play calling leaves defenses on their toes and gives the Chiefs breakout play potential on every snap. His college style offense allows players like Tyreek Hill to receive the ball  in different positions and plays. Tyreek Hill’s ability to play different positions forces the many different players to guard him. This leaves Hill with many mismatches that can lead to big play potential. With Travis Kelce, last year’s Pro Bowl MVP, the Chiefs have zero problems in the redzone.

The defense of the chiefs has been dominating opposing quarterbacks throughout the season. The Chiefs already have forced 7 turnovers in the first five games of the season. Also, the defense has gone two games in a row sprinting into the endzone and putting 6 points on the board.

The Kansas City Chiefs have all of the components to a winning Super Bowl team. Their spirits are high, their talent is astounding, their defense knows how to win games, and Andy Reid’s play calling leaves opposing defenses choking on the dust of the Chiefs’ offense. Kansas City is the definition of a Super Bowl winning team, and their perfect record is further proof that the Chiefs can and will win Super Bowl LII.
