Are the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs for real? It’s hard to say, but 3-0 and is 3-0, regardless of who you’ve played. You can only beat who has been put in front of you, and the Chiefs have done just that and looked fairly impressive doing so, especially on the defensive side of the ball. While quarterback Matt Cassel continues to be the bane of the local sports reporters’ existence, there’s no denying the Chiefs have a lot of young talent on offense and if the defense continues to perform, the playoffs might come sooner than most expected.
One of the new studs on offense is tight end Tony Moeaki, and against the 49ers, he lived up to the hype with a fantastic one-handed catch; one some are calling the catch of the year.

Another young stud and safe-driving enthusiast, Dexter McCluster, continues to wow Chiefs fans with his explosive plays, ones that usually result in touchdowns:
So while the Chiefs might not be Super Bowl contenders just yet, and while Cassel continues to take heat from his local critics, they do have a stout defense and some talented newcomers on offense. Couple that with an easy regular season schedule, and the Chiefs have a legitimate chance to make a run at the playoffs.
