17.3% 7th

The final stretch of the Chiefs schedule consists of nothing but fellow AFC playoff hopefuls, all of whom look beatable. Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense has grown more comfortable counterattacking defenses that spend entire games with their safeties deep, and Chris Jones' return to the interior has upgraded both the run defense and the pass rush. It sure looks like the Chiefs' early-season slump is behind them, and that Andy Reid is ready to run the table like a pool shark in December. -- Mike Tanier
