Chiefs 2021 Season Preview

The Kansas City Chiefs will look to end their 2021 season on the same stage in which their last two seasons have culminated, but with a better result than this past February.

The reigning two-time AFC Conference champions are seeking their third straight Super Bowl appearance and will be looking to avenge the sour ending they suffered to the 2020 season when they fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-9, in Super Bowl LV back in February.

The Chiefs executed a list of offseason moves to put together a brand new, fortified offensive line to protect their franchise quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, who the Bucs made run for his professional life during the Super Bowl.

With Mahomes and his set of high-powered offensive weapons backed by a new line and a defense that returns a few key pieces from injury, the Chiefs look poised to make a run at solidifying their dynasty.

2020 Recap

The Chiefs finished the 2020 regular season with the best record in the league, 14-2. The top seed in the AFC squeaked by the Cleveland Browns, 22-17, in the divisional round and then ran past the Buffalo Bills, 38-24, in the conference championship game.

Mahomes, who threw for 4,740 yards and 38 touchdowns in 2020, was banged up in the divisional round against the Browns when he suffered a concussion and a foot injury that ended up requiring offseason surgery.

The Chiefs went into Super Bowl LV looking for their second consecutive title but the Buccaneers dominated the contest, keeping the prolific Kansas City offense out of the endzone. Mahomes was run all over the field that night, as the Bucs exposed the Chiefs’ offensive line woes, hitting the quarterback eight times, recording three sacks and forcing him to run a remarkable 497 yards behind the line as he tried to escape pressure.


Offensive Outlook

The main focus of the Chiefs’ offseason was on improving the offensive line that let down Mahomes and co. during the Super Bowl. Kansas City will feature five new offensive linemen this season, including three rookies.

The Chiefs traded a first-round pick to the Baltimore Ravens for tackle Orlando Brown, Jr. The two-time Pro Bowler will transition to left tackle in the final year of his contract. Joining Brown will be former Patriots guard Joe Thuney, who signed a five-year $80 million contract with the Chiefs.

Kansas City used two of their picks in the 2021 NFL Draft to bring on Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey and Tennessee guard Trey Smith. To add to the depth of the line, two linemen will be returning from 2020 COVID-19 opt-out seasons to compete for spots – 2019 starter Dr. Laurent Duvernay-Tardif and 2020 third-round draft pick Lucas Niang.

The bolstered line will look to give Mahomes ample time to find his two All-Pro weapons, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. Both had banner seasons in 2020, with Kelce setting the single-season yardage record for a TE with 1,416 receiving yards, and Hill setting a career-high with 15 TDs and tying a career-best 87 catches.

Running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will look to improve on his rookie season statistics of 1,100 all-purpose yards and five TDs.


Defensive Outlook

On the defensive side of the ball, the Chiefs return a few players that were slowed by injuries during the 2020 season, including their leaders – defensive tackle Chris Jones and defensive end Frank Clark. Joining Jones and Clark on the line will be former Seahawks defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who signed a one-year deal with Kansas City in the offseason.

The Chiefs drafted linebacker Nick Bolton out of Missouri in the second round of this year’s draft. Bolton will slot in at weakside linebacker, with 2020 second-round selection Willie Gay Jr. shifting to strongside LB.

The Kansas City secondary will benefit from the return of 24-year-old cornerback Deandre Baker, who went down in the 2020 regular-season finale with a broken femur.

The heart of the Chiefs defense, three-time All-Pro safety Tyrann Mathieu, returns following a Pro Bowl season in which he recorded six interceptions, 62 total tackles and a touchdown.
