What Is Next for the Kansas City Chiefs?

The Kansas City Chiefs were going to go the Super Bowl if Dee Ford didn't jump offsides in the fourth-quarter because Kansas City picked off Tom Brady late in the game. However, the Patriots will be heading to the Super Bowl instead and they won the game in overtime 37-31.

The Chiefs finished with the best record in the AFC at 12-4 during the regular season. Patrick Mahomes will most likely be the NFL MVP. He was amazing for them throughout the entire season. Where do the Kansas City Chiefs go from here?

The Chiefs will have a great offense for years to come. Damien Williams solidified himself as Kansas City's number one running back after Kareem Hunt was released in November because of a disturbing video. It is possible Kansas City might draft a running back in the later rounds though.

Tyreek Hill only has one more year remaining on his contract. They need to give him a contract extension. Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, and Travis Kelce will all be back next season as well. Kansas City has a very good offensive line.

The Chiefs have a lot of work to do on the defensive side of the ball this offseason. Kansas City needs help in the secondary in the worst way possible. They don't have very good cornerbacks and the Kansas City Chiefs need a shutdown cornerback.

Not having defensive lineman Chris Jones on the field late in the game hurt this defense. Jones is becoming a very good and reliable defensive lineman for Kansas City. The defensive line isn't special without him. They could use another defensive lineman. The linebackers are pretty good on this roster.

The Kansas City Chiefs will have at least six picks in the NFL Draft and maybe more. They should focus heavily on the defensive side of the ball.

Andy Reid will have his guys ready to go for the 2019 season. This team should be one of the favorites to represent the AFC in Super Bowl LIV.
