Chiefs the best NFL team despite Steelers’ undefeated record, claims sportsbook director
The Pittsburgh Steelers hold the best record in the NFL, remaining undefeated at 10-0, but not many people are ready to say they are better than the Kansas City Chiefs. Similar to what most believe, Chris Andrews — the South Point sportsbook director — believes the Chiefs are the NFL’s team to beat.
Andrews did admit that he has the Steelers as his second-best team in the NFL at this point in the season. At the same time, he believes Ben Roethlisberger should be in the MVP conversation behind Patrick Mahomes.
While Roethlisberger has performed well, he has been more efficient than productive if anything. The veteran quarterback has completed 67.1 percent of his throws for 2,534 yards, 24 touchdowns, and five interceptions on the season.
Even though Big Ben’s numbers look good, Mahomes and other quarterbacks are putting up more eye-catching stats this season. Guys like Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, and Kyler Murray probably have better statistical arguments than Roethlisberger.
Of course, Roethlisberger is on the only undefeated team. However, Pittsburgh’s defense deserves a lot of credit for that as well. Despite what the Steelers and Roethlisberger have done, though, it’s hard to argue that the Chiefs aren’t the best team in the league.
The reigning Super Bowl champions have just one loss on their record. Besides the trio of Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Tyreek Hill, Kansas City now has an effective running game with Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Le’Veon Bell.
Looking at their remaining schedules, there’s a chance the Steelers secure the No. 1 seed in the AFC. With that being said, regardless of how both teams finish, Kansas City remains atop the throne in the NFL until officially knocked off. At this point, we can only hope that these two powerhouses face off in the playoffs for the right to go to the Super Bowl.
