Chiefs have lost one game in more than a full year

With so much talk about which teams are or aren’t good or great this year, one fact remains undeniable: The Chiefs are awesome.

Currently 8-1 in 2020, the Chiefs have a run of success that dates back a full year, with an 17-1 record in 18 games. As they approach their week off, they’re taking stock of where they are, and where they want to be.

“I think we’re the most dominant team in the National Football League,” tight end Travis Kelce told PFT after Sunday’s win over the Panthers. “We lost to the Raiders [and] in my opinion we shouldn’t have. Would’ve, could’ve, should’ve.”

The loss quite possibly happened because every team that plays the Chiefs treats the game like a measuring stick, bringing the best they have to show that they can compete with the best in the business. It causes the Chiefs to sometimes struggle against lesser teams.

“We haven’t necessarily shown that we’re the big bad wolf, for whatever reason,” Kelce said. “Close games, little things that hurt you I mean in terms of like penalties and missed assignments and things like that. We just gotta keep capitalizing on it. It’s not necessarily a bad thing. We knew coming into this that we were gonna have to build an entire team all over again. We couldn’t hang our hat on what we did last year at all we’re gonna have to work for this.”

They get a chance to avenge the only loss of the last calendar year when they head to Las Vegas next Sunday night. Kelce is confident.

“I always kind of split up the first and the second half by the bye week,” Kelce said. “We got here with one loss and I don’t plan on losing any time soon.”

The final seven games consist of the trip to Las Vegas, followed by the Buccaneers at Tampa, the Broncos at home, at Miami (sneaky great game), at New Orleans, and then season-ending home games against the Falcons and Chargers.

With the Steelers at 8-0 but living dangerously almost every week, the No. 1 seed could still happen for the Chiefs. They simply have to do what Kelce says and not lose any time soon.

    “We lost to the Raiders “

    Yes you did! WOoooo WEeeee !!!

    Refs handed the Raiders that game by taking 2 legit TD’s off the board for the Chiefs.

  2. And won games you should of lost. No repeat going on here. The defence is awful, Ask the panthers.

  3. The thing that the league needs to keep in mind is that the attitude you’re hearing from Kelce permeates the entire Chiefs organization. They believe in themselves and relish the chance to run it back. What an incredible time to be a Chiefs fan!

  4. As a Raiders fan we love the arrogant attitude! You’re second loss will be coming in week 11! KC is so overrated and should have had at least 3 more losses!

    LOL! Rest assured that if they were scheduled to play in the regular season, the Chiefs would be ready to go. This Chiefs fan is looking forward to them meeting for the AFC Championship.

    Speaking of games that should have been lost the Raiders should also have at least three more losses. That gate swings both directions there scooter.

  8. Hmmmmm. The force is strong with the haters here. With their teams, not so strong.

    As Al Davis would have phrased it, “18 and one, baby.”

    The Chiefs defense is #3 in scoring while the Chiefs offense is #1 in scoring. Their point differential is a staggering 103 points through 9 games, which is crazy considering that the Chiefs are seeing every other team’s best week after week. They’ve beaten every opponent by 10 points or more, save for the Panthers and Chargers but in no way, shape or form where they ever in danger of losing to the Panthers, who relied on trick plays to keep the game close.

  10. they didn’t just lose they were physically manhandled by the Raiders and they were completely dominated in the trenches. Which bodes well for the Raiders sweeping the Chiefs this year and potentially even winning the West if that happens and the Chiefs lose another game or two. So far the Chiefs have been very lucky this year they could have three losses instead of one

  11. I seriously don’t understand why people say the Chiefs defense is terrible. They’re ranked 7th best in points allowed per game. Whenever I watch them, the pass rush looks nasty and opposing receivers struggle to get open (often because they’re being held with no flag thrown but that’s another story).

  12. The Autumn Wind is a raider,
    Pillaging just for fun.
    He’ll knock you ’round and upside down,
    And laugh when he’s conquered and won.

    hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

    Go Raiders!

  13. superbowl run consisted of the texans, titans, and 49ers. WOW IMPRESSIVE!!!! all 3 of which they were losing badly in and had to claw their way back

  14. …and won by 10 or more points before all was said and done.

    Kc beat NE and Balt during the season as well, so it’s not like they didn’t beat the quality teams in the afc last year.

  15. Chiefs gonna curb stomp the Fade in their death star crib and start another 7 year long, 12-2 game winning run over the vagabond football team from Chokeland, California.

    Reid’s nearly invincible coming off a bye week. Gruden gonna regret being on the other sideline for this upcoming game and you fade fans will crawl back under your rocks til next year’s draft.

  16. Yes, they “clawed their way back” and won by double digits in every postseason game.

    Speaking of postseason, how does it feel raider fan? 1 winning season in 19 years. Too funny!
