4. The Chiefs

The team that the Broncos just happen to  be playing this Sunday is the one that stands in their way and will do  so for years to come.

The Broncos were already in a rut against their division rival before the Chiefs drafted Patrick Mahomes, who is the best quarterback (and probably the best player) in football right now. The team has little to no chance to beat the Chiefs based on how each team is currently put together, but the Broncos still need to show some heart.

The Chiefs are going to contend for Super Bowls for years to come, the way the Broncos used to. Until the Broncos find a way to compete with them, they’ll be looking at earning a Wild Card entry into the playoffs every year.

Mahomes and Andy Reid don’t lose often and they could potentially win the AFC West  every year for the next decade, the way that  Tom Brady and Bill Belichick used to rule the AFC East. When was the last time the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets or Miami Dolphins made a serious Super Bowl run?

It’s because Brady and the Pats were in their way and the Broncos could face the same issue.
