Madden 21 Ultimate Team opens the door for many theme team possibilities - and players chase these to create their favorite all-time lineups.

With that in mind, let's go over one of the best MUT 21 theme teams, the Kansas City Chiefs, and some important players to pick up.

Kansas City Chiefs Theme Team

Theme teams in MUT 21 keep things interesting, and the Chiefs are a team that has plenty of historic and current talent to choose from.

The Chiefs won it all last year, but to do it again will be a challenge. Luckily there's plenty of talent on both sides of the ball to pick from.

For players that put together a Chiefs Theme Team in Madden 21, there are some pickups you can't miss.

The Most Important Pieces

The star of any Chiefs team has to be 92 OVR Derrick Thomas from the Most Feared collection. The pass-rushing ROLB is a monster in the 3-4 defense and will get to the QB with ease.

SCARY: The speed with the pass rush stats, oh and 89 hit power!

You'll also need some coverage on defense so it's well worth getting 89 OVR Marcus Peters from the Flashbacks collection along with 89 OVR L'Jarius Sneed from Team Standouts at CB.

Going back in time gets you 89 OVR Bobby Bell from the legends set, team him up with 88 OVR Damien Wilson from Team Builders and you've got old and young across the LB slots.

But it's on offense where the Chiefs have all their superstars in MUT 21.

At QB, who else other than the 88 OVR Patrick Mahomes from Core Elite. Which makes him pretty much the best Core elite you can get.

Blocking for him you need to get the 91 OVR Will Shields from Team of the Week 7 and 87 OVR Mitchell Schwartz from core elite.

Catching passes you are literally spoilt for choice.

The headline though is a Hall of Famer. The 91 OVR Tony Gonzalez from Legends is an absolute monster at TE and virtually unplayable. Opposite is 90 OVR Travis Kelce from Most Feared and you'll have the best TE combo in the game.
