Some people like to argue the point, but the Chiefs are the best team in the NFL right now. Until the Chiefs lose, there is no debate because no other team is undefeated. Teams are judged by wins and losses and always have been, so if the season ended today, the Chiefs would be the No. 1 seed.
But the season also isn't over. The Chiefs are the best team through eight games, but the regular season is 16 games long. To be crowned the best team in the NFL this season, the Chiefs will also have to win at least three playoff games.
The question isn't if the Chiefs are the best team in the NFL right now, because that doesn't matter. Can the Chiefs continue to be the best team in the league? That's really the question, isn't it?
