Kansas City Chiefs and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will again be eyeing up another play-off run this season. After reaching the Super Bowl in 2020 and then falling just short last season, the Chiefs will be as hungry as ever to add a third Lombardi trophy to their cabinet. However, losing wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins this off-season has largely weakened their offence, which so regularly relied on the pacey wideout and tight end Travis Kelce.

With one less weapon to utilise, Mahomes could find things slightly tougher this season. But, Justin Reid - the Chiefs' new safety - has no doubts the 26-year-old will adapt.

"The Chiefs offense is going to do what we always do. We're going to come out, we're going to put up 100 points," Reid said. "We have the greatest football quarterback in the game. The top-three, in no particular order, although I'm sure you guys can guess who is my number one: Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers. "And when you have a quarterback, and you have an offensive system, a coordinator that is able to just mix things up all the time - you're always going to put up points. "We're going to combine that with great football across the board. Complimentary offense, defense, special teams, and we're going to go out and win games. "We're in the toughest division in the NFL, that's no secret. It's going to be fireworks every time anybody plays and you're gonna want to watch that." Despite falling short of a third consecutive Super Bowl last season, the Chiefs' offence remained one of the most entertaining across the NFL, with the team averaging 28.2 points and 396.8 yards per game.

Hill's 111 receptions and 1,239 yards last season will certainly be missed in the upcoming campaign, but his departure has also given the franchise a chance to rebuild their receiving corps from top to bottom. The Chiefs signed wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling to help fill the void, while they also drafted Skyy Moore from Western Michigan. The Chiefs return to NFL action on September 11, with an opening game against the Arizona Cardinals.
