NFL's most complete teams in '20? Ravens, 49ers, Chiefs top the list

Could take this in a lot of different directions ...After spinning my wheels for a while, I eventually embraced a columnist cliché: Let's consult my friend Merriam-Webster, and see what she has to say!The top definition for the word "complete": .Well alright.
