Chiefs Playoff Chances, Odds & Prediction for 2022 NFL Season
The three guarantees in the life of a football fan are death, taxes and the Kansas City Chiefs being one of the NFL's top teams each season. Although the organization fell short of a Super Bowl appearance last year, all signs point to them remaining a contender in 2022 and beyond.
Tyreek Hill may have left for South Beach, but Patrick Mahomes is more than talented enough to do damage with his current pass-catching weapons. Throw in the improvements that Kansas City has made on defense and it looks like a team poised for a deep playoff run.

Chiefs 2022 Season Prediction
As great as the Chiefs look on paper, they own the hardest 2022 NFL schedule. One could make the argument that, aside from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks, the rest of Kansas City's upcoming opponents are capable of winning Super Bowl LVII.
The Chiefs won't have much time to catch their breath in 2022, meaning they have to make every single game count. If their defense even looks close to being as bad as it was to start last season, their opponents will eat them alive and making the playoffs might become increasingly difficult.
Nevertheless, the Chiefs seem ready to be as strong as ever and I'll give them the benefit of the doubt to hit both the over on their win total and make the playoffs.
