124. . 4-2. Previous: 5th. Kansas City Chiefs. 7. team

If the Kansas City Chiefs and their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes are at the top of their games, then they’re clearly a top-five team, but they haven’t been at the top of their games, have they? Kansas City’s in the midst of a two-game losing streak, and the way they’re playing, there isn’t any guarantee that they’ll beat the Denver Broncos on Thursday night.

This team can still win the Super Bowl, but there are chinks in the armor.

They can’t win if Mahomes doesn’t shine. Sometimes they can’t win if he does, and they can’t guard the chair you’re sitting in. If they can fix all of that, they may be the best team in the AFC outside of New England.

60. . 4-2. Previous: 8th. Minnesota Vikings. 8. team

Why is it so hard to give the Minnesota Vikings any real credit? Kirk Cousins can’t be the only reason, can he? Well, to be honest, he could be the only reason. No, that isn’t accurate.

Kirk Cousins is the only reason.

No one’s going to give the Vikings any real credit until Cousins evolves into a top-tier quarterback or until Minnesota replaces him with a real one. He might be this team’s only glaring weakness, and that isn’t good when he plays the most important position on the football field.
