The Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs defied all odds over the course of the 2019 season. The Andy Reid-coached NFL franchise ended a Championship drought of 50 years by beating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV last year.
The last time the Chiefs made the Super Bowl was back in 1970.
2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes was undoubtedly the star of the show last year. However, he had some formidable teammates by his side.
The likes of Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and others put in some powerful performances to bolster the Chiefs’ claim to the elusive Lombardi Trophy. However, the real challenge for Reid’s team begins this year.
Can they consistently put in the same displays as they did in 2019, or will they fall prey to their own success?
Kansas City Chiefs ended the 2019 regular season with a 12-4 record as they made the playoffs. They bagged the AFC Championship title by defeating the Tennessee Titans in the Championship game.
They went on to stun the 49ers in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl as they fought back to eventually seal the win with a 31-20 margin.
The Chiefs’ General manager, Brian Veach, has done a commendable job to tie down their stars with long-term contracts. Patrick Mahomes, Chris Jones, and Sammy Watkins all signed contract extensions with the Chiefs heading into the 2020 season.
Tyrann Mathieu was adjudged as the Chiefs’ MVP of the year. Meanwhile, wide receiver Mecole Hardman was named Rookie of the Year.
The Chiefs had six players who made the NLF Top 100 list this season, which is the highest for any team in the league. Patrick Mahomes came in at the fourth spot on the list. He also secured a 99 OVR in EA Sports’ Madden NFL 21.
