The Eagles’ former coach is experiencing some hardship.

Who would have thought? The Super Bowl slump has fallen on the Kansas City Chiefs. They were run off of the field last February, and though they’ve had their moments this season, the losses have come more frequently than this team is used to. The same can be said for Patrick Mahomes, who, in 2021, has thrown more interceptions (nine) than he threw all of last season (six).

The Chiefs don’t look like they’re having a ton of fun, and even though Eagles fans are often split on how great of a coach Andy Reid is, how his Chiefs team performs and responds the rest of the 2021 season will be an indicator of how great of a coach he truly is.

53. . 4-3. . Cleveland Browns. 12. team

Raise your hand if you were waiting on the old Cleveland Browns to show up. They began to silence the doubters last season, but it’s a huge difference between being the hunter and the hunted.

Some say that’s the reason the Browns are struggling. Others acknowledge that Baker Mayfield has game, but they still see him as the weak link. What are your theories? Did we overvalue the Browns?

You guys can argue about that among yourselves, but whether you were expecting this or not, they’re now looking up at the Cincinnati Bengals and the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC North.
