Months after winning their second Super Bowl in four seasons, the Kansas City Chiefs are looking to go from a great team to a dynasty as they progress through training camp.
They’re still considered the favorites to win it all this season, or at least to come out of the AFC yet again, even though they lost a couple of key contributors this offseason.
The biggest threat to the Chiefs, according to most, is the Cincinnati Bengals, a team that is brimming with talent, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
But sports commentator Chris Broussard thinks the Baltimore Ravens are actually a bigger threat to Kansas City than Joe Burrow and company, via First Things First.
Still believe Bengals are Chiefs biggest threat?

The Ravens’ offseason began with huge uncertainty, as it looked like quarterback Lamar Jackson had one foot out the door as a free agent.
But he agreed to a huge new contract, and suddenly things began to take shape for them.
They took a flyer on former three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who is coming off rehab for a second torn ACL, and they drafted Zay Flowers, a wideout who is considered to have star potential.
The Ravens went 10-7 in 2022, and as Broussard pointed out, they were competitive against the Bengals in the Wild Card round even though Jackson was out with an injury.
Mark Andrews is one of the league’s best tight ends, and their defense, particularly their run defense, is very strong.
Kansas City saw star wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Pro Bowl offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. leave in free agency, and they will have to replace their production in order to repeat as world champs.
