In fact, their win over the Saints yesterday allowed them to complete a perfect away record, going 8-0 in enemy territory.

NFL analyst Nick Wright spoke about the Kansas City Chiefs on First Things First. Wright called them one of the greatest teams in NFL history.

“I’ve been being humble about the Chiefs. In order to add some suspense and add some intrigue to this NFL season, I have soft-pedaled what is now obviously true.

“This is one of the greatest teams in the history of the NFL. They just completed the greatest road season in the NFL.”

Wright mentioned the teams that the Chiefs beat this season and mentioned that many of them were Super Bowl favorites. “It is not just because they were 8-0 on the road.

“But it’s that they beat Super Bowl contenders New Orleans, alleged Super Bowl contender Tampa, Super Bowl favorite going into the year Baltimore… All in their buildings.” 

Kansas City Chiefs – All-Time Greats

Despite the grueling schedule, the Chiefs have not suffered a significant injury so far. The closest call has been the injury of Clyde Edwards-Helaire. “This time of year you’re trying to avoid the unlucky injury. The Chiefs might have suffered that yesterday…

“Luckily, one of the greatest teams in the history of the league has one of the greatest GMs in the league, and backing up Clyde Edwards-Helaire is multiple-time All-Pro Le’Veon Bell.

“The Chiefs are not going to lose again until sometime into 2021. Doesn’t matter where the games are played. And yesterday afternoon cemented that.”

Wright further added that the current Kansas City Chiefs team isn’t just the best team in the NFL (which he said they are), but they are an all-time great team. And history will remember them as such.

“We learned we’re not just watching a Super Bowl favorite, we’re watching an All-Time team. And anyone arguing otherwise at this point is just spitting in the wind. Because they know what they’re seeing, whether they want to admit it or not.”

The Chiefs will enter the NFL Playoffs as one of, if not the outright favorites, to reach the Super Bowl. And if they can go back-to-back and win another title, they will undoubtedly cement themselves as an all-time great team.
