  • they're all of our favorites.

  • We all look at them because of Patrick Mahomes and Tyree Kill and Travis Kelsey, who just reminds us he is the best site in the football.

  • And we say, Look, thes brothers unstoppable.

  • I'm gonna sit up there and say to you, I've seen some vulnerabilities.

  • The Raiders played them pretty damn tough last night.

  • I thought the Chiefs was gonna blow them out.

  • We talked about this last week, and I had the Chiefs running away with this game because I thought it's gonna be a vengeful, eventual game because the debate Raiders had put them gave them their only loss for the season.

  • But when you run the football, when you engage in ball control and you play smash mouth kind of football and you're able to move to change, that could create some problems for the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • We saw the defense arguing on the sidelines with one another because guys were open, wide open in a couple of situations where Derek Carr was able to throw a touchdown pass.

  • You just look at some of the things this year when you watch the chief play.

  • How many times is Patrick Mahomes gonna be called upon to come to the rescue.

  • We know he's capable of doing it.

  • He's done it on numerous occasions.

  • I'm in no way trying to say that they're not the favorites.

  • I get it.

  • But do I look at them as a team that could be had?

  • Yeah, I dio.

  • I think that I think that you know what?

  • You can't just sleep on Pittsburgh if they would.

  • Obviously, if they get to the Super Bowl, you can't just sleep on a Tampa.

  • You damn sure can't sleep on New Orleans.

  • And I look at it from that perspective.

  • That's why I say, Excuse me, they're the favorites.

  • But doubt about their potency compared to what we've seen, particularly last year, there's a slimmer doubt there for me, personally.

  • Just this, Yeah.

  • I mean, of course, the Chiefs look vulnerable.

  • That's the thing about um, The reason I like them to win the Super Bowl is the reasons that you point out Stephen A.

  • Because you can run on their defense.

  • They were undisciplined yesterday.

  • They weren't great in past covers like there were a lot of reasons, and that's been the case by the way.

  • Forget about right now.

  • Let's go back to last year's playoffs.

  • They had double digit deficits in every game, like they're down to Texans.

  • They're down to the Titans, their way down late to the San Francisco 40 Niners, and they come back on all of them.

  • And then early this season and everyone's power rankings, right?

  • The Chiefs are not number one.

  • Why?

  • Because they're showing vulnerabilities.

  • It's like they're playing with teams.

  • When Patrick Mahomes got the ball back with over a minute to go, that anyone doubt he was gonna win the game, you know it was over.

  • You give Patrick Mahomes over a minute, and it was It was even easier than I thought it would be.

  • So, yes, the chief's defense makes them look vulnerable.

  • It makes them mawr exciting, maybe even than they should be.

  • And, yes, it doesn't look as good as it did last year.

  • It reminds me more of the year before.

  • Maybe it's good enough, but I'll remind everyone the year before, which is Patrick Mahomes real rookie season as quarterback.

  • They should have won the Super Bowl.

  • Pre snap penalty did it to him.

  • That was the first time he touched the ball, really.

  • And then the next year they won the Super Bowl, showing vulnerability, and they've shown a lot of vulnerability so far this season to the tune of a nine and one record.

  • Yep, their defense looked suspect last night, and I'm telling you, it's not gonna matter.

  • There's no doubt about the Chiefs.

  • This is the runaway best team in football.

  • First of all, I wanna make sure everyone understands.

  • I've been trying for a month to get people to believe that the Raiders are a very, very good football team, and they are built to beat one team, the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • They could be explosive on offense.

  • They control the football and their offensive lying condemn in eight a game, right?

  • But here's the thing.

  • Last night, the Raiders played their A game.

  • Yesterday, they had three drives.

  • The Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes injury.

  • They had three drives.

  • That 1/13, please.

  • That's because the Raiders dared them to do that.

  • Can you be methodical going down the field and chiefs like, Yeah, we're good.

  • We could beat you.

  • However, you want us to beat you.

  • Well, Dan, Dan Orlovsky.

  • First of all, I would I would, uh, say to you, You need to watch first, take just a little bit more because about over the last couple of weeks, we had a discussion about who was the sleeper in the A F C, if not the entire NFL.

  • Max Kellerman mentioned Miami.

  • I mentioned the I mentioned the Las Vegas Raiders, so you ain't the only one who's been talking about them.

  • That's number one.

  • Number two.

  • I would challenge you.

  • I would challenge you on their A game.

  • I would say their A game is the game they won against the Kansas City Chiefs when they dropped 40 when they rushed for 139 yards when runs scored, you know, had two receptions for 118 yards, including a big time bomb touchdown catch.

  • Okay, and the defense held the Kansas City teams to eight points in the fourth quarter, so I would make the contention that the eight game was the game, the Raiders one, as opposed to last night's game number three.

  • I would also say this would be my biggest point.

  • Dan and Max.

  • Here's what I'm willing to contend to you why I feel just a tab bit different when you talk about just having a sliver of doubt.

  • The Kansas City Chiefs had double digit deficits in the divisional playoff game and the A F C championship game last year, right?

  • Yes, they would not win those games.

  • This year.

  • You can't go in the NFC championship game and be down 17 or 24.

  • You can't be in the A F C divisional playoff game, and that's gonna happen again with the way this defense operates against the run.

  • I think that a team, if they were able to capture such a lead in the playoffs this year, coming up, I think they will run the ball more effectively, and as a result, they would win those games.

  • That's what I mean.

  • E just live doubt.

  • They ain't gonna get away now or what they got away with.

  • Last chance e.

  • The best chance you have of beating the Chiefs is a shootout, and, by the way, the pretty damn good and shootouts.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.

they're all of our favorites.
