The Chiefs have had a weird season. Despite winning 14 games and the AFC's first overall seed, many around Kansas City felt like the team never quite played a complete game. With a red-hot Jacksonville Jaguars team coming into Arrowhead on Saturday afternoon, the Chiefs will more than likely have to put one of their best games of the season together if they want to advance to the AFC Championship game. So what does that kind of performance look like? And have the Chiefs already done it this year? On Wednesday, The Athletic's Nate Taylor joined 610's Cody and Gold to give his take.

"I thought the entire season came down to, okay, if you trust Mahomes this much, if you trust the infrastructure that Andy Reid, Eric Bienemy, and Steve Spagnolo have created, if you get pretty good production out of a larger than normal rookie class, than the goal is to get back to the AFC Championship game," he said. "So that you have another shot to get to the Super Bowl. When you go into that AFC Championship, you'll have the better quarterback, which means you'll always have a chance. But with a younger roster entering Mahomes' second phase of his career, I just thought that hey, if you get back to the AFC Championship game, that is a massive achievement. And now they're one game away from doing that, and they don't have to play the Bills or the Bengals in order to do that. It's really a remarkable season in a lot of ways, but we also know that this team has not played their best football up until the last game of the season."
