Chiefs Don’t 3-Peat in Latest 2024-25 NFL Playoff Predictions

Even though it feels way too soon to start throwing around Super Bowl predictions, Pro Football Network did it anyway — and the Chiefs were not representing the AFC in this round of predictions.

Instead, it was the rival Cincinnati Bengals and Joe Burrow facing off with the Philadelphia Eagles.

In this simulated playoff projection, the Chiefs did lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC, but they were defeated in the title game at Arrowhead Stadium by Burrow’s Bengals to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Meanwhile, the Eagles defeated Jordan Love’s Green Bay Packers to represent the NFC.

These predictions are just for fun for now, but we know they can seriously heat up as the NFL season nears.

Wide Receiver Named Kansas City’s Biggest Need After NFL Draft

Even after trading up with the Buffalo Bills to secure Xavier Worthy in the first round of the NFL Draft, wide receiver is still the Chiefs’ biggest need this offseason.

Of course, this Chiefs roster doesn’t have many holes. But Worthy is an unproven rookie, and speed doesn’t always translate to the next level. Hollywood Brown is an upgrade from what the Chiefs had last year, but he’s not considered a typical No. 1 receiving option.

Additionally, Rashee Rice will likely face a suspension. Patrick Mahomes has proved that he can overcome incompetence at the receiver position, but it’s still the biggest need on Kansas City’s roster.

No Vote on Kansas Bill To Pull Chiefs Across Border

Some Kansas lawmakers see the Chiefs’ current stadium situation as an opportunity to lure the Super Bowl champions along with the Kansas City Royals over the border.

In recent days, the bill has struggled to gain traction over concerns of how it would impact taxpayers. Regardless, the idea is not completely dead.

“We’ll be in a situation where we go back to the drawing board,” Chiefs owner Clark Hunt said. “I do feel very much a sense of urgency, and we will approach it from a broader perspective moving forward.”

The Chiefs are hopeful to remain at a renovated Arrowhead Stadium. The current lease on the two stadiums’ complex is good through 2031.
