Is it possible for the Chiefs to go undefeated? They will, according to this ESPN NFL insider.

The Kansas City Chiefs, according to one ESPN NFL expert, may have what it takes to go unbeaten this season.
An NFL team hasn’t completed a season flawlessly since the 1972 Miami Dolphins, but many feel the 2021 Kansas City Chiefs will do so this fall.
The latest episode of Get Up! aired on Wednesday morning.
Jeff Darlington, an ESPN NFL insider, stated his optimism for the Chiefs this season.
He added he had no idea when the Chiefs will lose their first game of the season, presumably implying that they will join the 1972 Dolphins as the only Super Bowl-era teams to go unbeaten.
So, should we believe the Chiefs’ unbeaten record or not?
The New England Patriots came close in 2007, but were defeated by the New York Giants in Super Bowl 42. The Kansas City Chiefs could be in the running to go undefeated this NFL season. While Darlingtons point about not seeing a loss on the Chiefs schedule is valid, nobody in the NFL goes undefeated anymore.
Nobody will ever be able to do it if the Patriots of 2007 couldn’t.
When you consider that the 2021 season will have a 17th regular-season game, it becomes even more difficult.
Bear in mind that the 1972 Dolphins only appeared in 14 regular-season games.
While finishing 17-0 would secure the Chiefs the No. 1 seed,
They would not have to play in the wild card round if they received a No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs, but they will have great competition in the conference this year.
The Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, and Cleveland Browns are all big names in the NFL.
Three clubs in the AFC West would love nothing more than to sabotage the Chiefs’ attempt for a flawless season.
Kansas City is expected to win roughly 13-14 regular-season games this season.
