Make the $400 million quarterback happy. After Patrick Mahomes got demolished in the Super Bowl thanks to horrid pass protection, the Chiefs spent nearly all their top resources this offseason on securing a better offensive line. The defensive front seven is still lacking in talent, same as last season, but having Mahomes steer an elite offense yet again should net the Chiefs another deep playoff run.  – Derrik Klassen
