ESPN is already raising questions about the future of the Kansas City Chiefs’ dynasty following their surprising 21-20 loss to the Detroit Lions.
The Chiefs, who have won two Super Bowl titles in the past four years, were considered by many to be a powerhouse in the NFL entering the season.
During a recent segment on ESPN’s “Get Up,” a panel of analysts engaged in a debate about whether this loss marks “the beginning of the end” for the Chiefs’ dynasty.
While opinions varied among the analysts, the discussion centered on whether this defeat could be indicative of the team’s performance for the rest of this season and beyond.
Some fans aren’t too thrilled with ESPN’s speculation, believing it to be premature to say the Chiefs are done after one loss, by a single point, when two of their three best players missed action in Pro-Bowl DT Chris Jones and star Tight End Travis Kelce.
With the NFL season just beginning, it makes sense we’ll get an overreaction following a loss but this might be pushing it by ESPN. The Chiefs don’t lose many games with Patrick Mahomes.
