Scott said in July, with Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman in the studio, that he believed AFC West teams closed the gap on them, citing acquisitions by the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders and the appearance of Justin Herbert. . He said it could be a «reset year» for the Chiefs.
He doubled down on that statement in August, when he said he didn’t think the Chiefs would make the playoffs. He added that the other defenses were «miles ahead» of the Chiefs.

Kansas City was not in the top 10 defenses in the two main categories: points allowed and yards allowed. The team even allowed 35 points to Philadelphia in the biggest game of the season, the most they did all year. Chris Jones had 15.5 sacks this season and earned All-Pro and Pro Bowl selections.

Oh, and they didn’t forget.
«Before we started this season, the AFC West said we were rebuilding,» Mahomes told a raucous crowd during the celebration. «I’ll be honest with you, I don’t know what rebuild means. In our rebuild year, we are world champions.
«This is just the beginning.»
