KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Are the reigning Super Bowl champions being disrespected?
Chiefs defensive lineman Chris Jones certainly thinks so, taking time during a Friday news conference to sound off on those doubting him and his teammates.
“I hear everything ... all the talk,” Jones said. “We just try to keep our head down and work. I know Coach Reid wants his respect. Pat wants his respect. Travis wants his respect. We all want our respect."
Kansas City enters Sunday's AFC Divisional game as 10-point favorite over the Cleveland Browns and the odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl LV, per Bovada.
