Chiefs 2021 Season Preview
Looking for 2021 Kansas City Chiefs Predictions? The Chiefs have played in back-to-back Super Bowls. Last year’s loss forced them to look at their depth and turn over a few spots with an eye to winning another one. History may not be on their side in terms of playing for the title again but at the same time, this looks like the best team on paper. Somebody in the AFC has to catch them. There are candidates but that is easier said than done.

2021/22 NFL Team Predictions – Kansas City Chiefs
- Chiefs 2021 Win Total NFL Odds: 12.5 (Over +120/Under -145)
- Kansas City Chiefs AFC West Odds: -275
- Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship Odds: +200
- Kansas City Chiefs 2022 Super Bowl Odds: +4500
- OT Orlando Brown Jr.
- OG Joe Thuney
- OG Kyle Long
- LB Nick Bolton
The big moves were to increase the quality and depth of the offensive line as the consensus is that is what kept them from back-to-back Super Bowl wins. I like the emphasis and we will see how it goes. KC does not need an elite line.
LB Bolton was super productive at Mizzou. There is no reason he can’t be plug-and-play in the NFL this season.
- OT Eric Fisher
- OT Mitchell Schwartz
- WR Sammy Watkins
The Chiefs were not satisfied with their line play a year ago so changes were expected. They will be fine with their replacements.
When Watkins joined KC there was some thought that Andy Reid and a high-powered offense would get the most out of his talents. That was never really the case and he was quickly made obsolete.
2021 Kansas City Chiefs Predictions: Offseason Analysis
When you make it to the Super Bowl for the second year in a row things are going pretty well. When you lose there is always room for improvement right.
The big thing they want to improve is the offensive line. This makes total sense because if they can’t protect Patrick Mahomes this team is sunk. It is all about protection, not the running game.
When you tinker on the offensive line it can sometimes take a while for things to improve so we probably won’t know if this team has really improved until deeper into the season.
This team never got much out of Watkins and they should not miss him either. They actually have more speed on the field without him and other receivers had already eclipsed his production.
I would have liked to see the Chiefs do a little more on defense in the offseason. It is hard to knock them for focusing on their moneymaker though
This team is more than good enough to get back the Super Bowl. I am no ready to bet against it today. That said they might take a little bit of timeto find the dominant form we know they have in them.
2021 Kansas City Chiefs Win Total Prediction:
Kansas City only lost 2 gameslast seasonand comes into the season likely to be favored in every contest. It would be pretty wild if a team went 17-0 in the first season the expanded schedule.
That is not to say that the Chiefs have an easy schedule. In the first 5 games they play legit AFC contenders in Cleveland, Baltimore and Buffalo. If they are not ready for the reason or need time to gel it could be a little rough.
In the next part of the season they make trips to Washington and Tennessee back to back. Especially that Tennessee game could be a spot for a loss after playing Washington, one of the league’s best defenses.
After their bye week things ease up a bit as they have mostly division foes over the final 6 weeks of the season. Denver and San Diego look improved but they are still a tier or two below the Chiefs.
The Chiefs total is high reflecting teh talent of the team. The schedule difficult is high too with the AFC looking like the better of the two conferences this season.
It is hard to find 4 losses on the schedule that would make you look to fade this team on their win total. Don’t forget that extra game makes 13 wins less lofty than before.
