Five reasons the Kansas City Chiefs will repeat as Super Bowl champs.
The kickoff of the NFL season is fast approaching and its important to remember that the Kansas City Chiefs are the reigning Super Bowl champs. Led by an epic MVP performance from Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs snapped a 50-year title drought and are favored to take home the Lombardi Trophy again. Let’s take a look at five reasons why the Chiefs will become the first team since the 2004 New England Patriots to repeat as Super Bowl champs.
5. The competition in the AFC really isn’t that good.
You have to get to the Super Bowl in order to win it and the Chiefs had a very favorable path to Miami last January. Kansas City dispatched AFC South foes Houston and Tennessee at home to get to the big game, where they took care of business against San Francisco.
The NFC remains rugged but the AFC has gotten significantly weaker this season. Tom Brady’s move from New England to Tampa Bay has diminished the Patriots’ threat level while Bill O’Brien actively made moves that were not in the best short-term interests of the Texans.
The Baltimore Ravens are still a force to be reckoned with, but outside of them finding a team capable of pushing the Chiefs in the AFC is a tall order. Simply being in the weaker conference automatically boosts the Chiefs’ odds of winning another Super Bowl.
