Super must be the word of the week as Super is being thrown around a lot this week when Sunday’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars comes up. There are many reasons for this as both teams are off to Super starts to the 2018 season.
The Chiefs enter the game undefeated at 4-0 while the Jaguars visit with a 3-1 mark. The Chiefs offense has looked Super in averaging an NFL high 36.3 points a game so far this year. The Jaguars feature the top ranked defense in the NFL giving up only 259 yards a game. The Super comparisons between the two teams extends to the quarterback position. Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes has thrown for 1,200 yards while Jags QB Blake Bortles has gone for 1,095.
The Super similarities don’t end there as the two teams share the same goals within the AFC. Last year the Jaguars made it all the way to the AFC Championship game only to give up a second half lead and lose at heavily favored New England. Jacksonville wants to do well enough this season so they can host this very important game. Thanks to a blazing 4-0 start the Chiefs are also thinking about being in Atlanta in February the site of Super Bowl 53.
The KC Chiefs have played Super to get to 4-0 and will have to play Super on Sunday to beat the Jaguars. Thanks to a HOT start the Chiefs already have key AFC wins over Pittsburgh and two division rivals which will help them come playoff time. After Jacksonville the Chiefs travel to play a team who played in the last Super Bowl, the New England Patriots, making this game against the Jaguars Super important even if it’s just week 5.
This Super matchup is getting loads of attention and will get a lot on Sunday thanks to CBS the network televising the game. CBS is bringing their #1 crew to broadcast the event on Sunday, Jim Nantz and Tony Romo. This Sunday around 3:00 p.m. after yet another KC Chiefs win, Chiefs fans will feel Super leaving Arrowhead. That’s What I REID Into It for this week.
