The Chiefs are riding high on a Super Bowl win. What can they expect from the 2023 season? What does a worst-case scenario season prediction look like?

The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl victory, their second in four seasons. Everyone and their mother knows what a best-case scenario for Patrick Mahomes and company looks like in 2023: An undefeated campaign capped by another championship in the bag.

Only one team in NFL history has managed that feat and the odds would certainly be working against Kansas City, but it wouldn’t feel impossible to dream about.

Instead, we’re going to look at what the 2023 season would look like for the reigning champs in the worst-case* scenario.

*Worst-case without injuries factoring in, because no one wants to consider that possibility.

Mahomes has a perfect 3-0 record against the Jaguars in his career and Jacksonville hasn’t beaten the Chiefs home or away in their last six meetings.

The Jaguars are still trying to rebuild and KC will have already suffered their wake up call for the season. This one, even in a worst-case scenario, goes Kansas City’s way. Still, there may be defensive cracks for Trevor Lawrence to exploit in a closer-than-comfortable matchup.

The Chiefs are 2-0 (0-0) going into Week 3…
