Lot of fans think they have a ten win team minimum, and they'd probably up it to 12. usually 12 win teams are title contending type clubs. All KC fans are looking for is a reason to believe that their team is a legitimate contending team.
It's cautious optimism. The expectations already are high. Playoffs are the bar.
And 90% of any NFL fans are looking for a reason to believe their team is a legit contending team. The 10% are teams that know they are contending teams (Patriots/Packers).
