The Kansas City Chiefs and the Green Bay Packers are both hot favorites to land the Super Bowl title this season. With the Chiefs having clinched the AFC top seed already, and the Green Bay Packers just a win away from doing the same in the NFC, both teams could eventually end up facing off in Tampa for the Lombardi Trophy come February 7th.

Former 2-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday, during a segment of ESPN’s Get Up, disputed the claim made by former NFL Head Coach Rex Ryan regarding the outcome of a possible matchup between the two.

Ryan pegged the Packers to win against the Chiefs. Ryan made the assumption based on the number of close games the Chiefs have had recently.

“Rex Ryan, he’s high bro. Let’s be real you’re talking about a team that has lost one game. I don’t care how many you win by. The league is about winning and losing like,” Saturday said.

He also highlighted that the Chiefs have been able to pull off wins against the toughest of opponents on the road. “They went to Tampa, Buffalo, they beat all the best teams on the road. It doesn’t matter where they’re playing.

“And you’re telling me that you’re gonna write off the Kansas City Chiefs because it doesn’t look as good? That’s absolutely ridiculous man.

“This is a good football team that gets challenged by the very best effort, each and every week, and they continue to find ways to win,” he added.
