Sports Illustrated says the Kansas City Chiefs are a ‘legitimate Super Bowl contender’

Who knows what will actually happen on the field, but the Kansas City Chiefs are winning in the early preseason magazine rankings. Sports Illustrated is in the process of breaking down each team, and here’s what the piece had to say about the boys in red and gold:

This is a very talented team, there’s no doubt about that. That talent alone should get it to the playoffs easily, even in an AFC West that has a reloading Chargers and a Peyton Manning-led Broncos team. But how far the Chiefs go in the postseason is up to Cassel and Crennel. Both are good enough to not get in the way. But can they be even better? If so, I dare say that the Chiefs have a chance to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders.
