The NFL currently has two 5-0 teams. The question now becomes whether the Rams or the Chiefs will avoid the fates of three recent teams that rocketed to 5-0 starts.It began in 2015 Youth Isaiah Oliver Jersey , when the Falcons started 5-0. And 5-0 eventually became 6-7.The following year, the Vikings started 5-0. And 5-0 eventually became 6-6.The next year, the Chiefs started 5-0. And 5-0 eventually became 6-6.Of those three teams, only the Chiefs rallied to salvage a playoff berth. This year, the Rams already have the NFC West firmly under control, barring a complete and total collapse. The Chiefs have less wiggle room Stitched Tony Gonzalez Jersey , with the 3-2 Chargers (the losses have come to the Rams and Chiefs) ready to pounce in the event K.C. stumbles.But the Chiefs are keenly aware of the pitfalls of being 5-0 and having it all fall apart. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes told PFT after the Week Two win against Pittsburgh that, by witnessing the slide as a rookie backup to Alex Smith,聽he learned the importance of staying focused on taking care of business and 鈥渘ever being satisfied.”Last year, the first loss came at home against the Steelers. This year, the Chiefs will try to avoid 5-1 on the road, against the Patriots. Obviously Youth Tony Gonzalez Jersey , it won’t be easy.The Rams won’t have an easy sixth win, either. The Broncos are desperate and at home. The temperatures will be in the 20s, and snow is in the forecast.So maybe both of the 5-0 teams will end the day at 5-1. It’s still unlikely that either or both will end up being 6-6, however. The unexpectedly robust pipeline from the AAF to the NFL continues to flow.Safety Ed Reynolds will work out with the Falcons today, per a league source. This is just the first stop; other teams have interest in Reynolds.A fifth-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2014, Reynolds has spent time with Philly and Cleveland. He last played in the NFL in 2016 Stitched Deion Sanders Jersey , and he has made the most of the second chance he secured with the Atlanta Legends of the now-defunct AAF.The resurrection of Reynolds’ career underscores the value of a spring football league to the NFL. But the NFL apparently doesn’t deem it to be valuable enough, or the NFL would have its own. After all, each team ultimately has only 53 regular-season roster spots, and for every Ed Reynolds who potentially parlays a spot in a developmental league into an NFL job, there will be a guy with an NFL job who lost it to Reynolds.
