But they are hoping that this year begins a new era, as they everybody involved with the Chiefs, experience the raw talent of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes has marveled not just the Kansas City Faithful, but the rest of the league. However the New England Patriots, would like to say that they still like their old reliable, Tom Brady.
