Kansas City Chiefs vs Houston Texans: Storylines
You know what they say: the rich get richer, and that's what happened to the Chiefs with the addition of LSU standout running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who'll move from one championship to another to fuel an already explosive offense.
Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are coming off huge contract extensions and the Chiefs already proved that they have one of the most electrifying teams the league has ever seen, especially at home.
Deshaun Watson will certainly want to move on from that heartbreaking 51-31 loss in the playoffs. Houston led by as much as 24 points but Andy Reid's team came back in a huge way to completely demolish them with a 51-7 run.
Moreover, Bill O'Brien pulled off one of the most controversial moves in recent history by trading away Deandre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals for David Johnson and a couple of draft picks.
