The Kansas City Chiefs are back in the AFC Championship Game, the fifth consecutive year the franchise will be playing for an appearance in the Super Bowl. Kansas City is the first team in league history to host five consecutive conference championship games, and they’ll be playing in a stadium where Patrick Mahomes has lost in the postseason just twice, both in overtime — the 2019 AFC Championship against Tom Brady and the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, and last season’s AFC Championship against Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals.
Kansas City appears to be in a strong position to win the Super Bowl again, having the head coach-quarterback combination in place with Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes (although Mahomes’ injured ankle could certainly make it more difficult). The Chiefs also have one of the best postseason pass-catchers in NFL history in tight end Travis Kelce, along with the most disruptive defensive tackle in the NFL this season, first-team All-Pro Chris Jones.
The Chiefs thought they had the pieces to return to the mountaintop as Super Bowl champions last season, but they fell flat in the AFC Championship, squandering a 21-3 lead. Those issues for this talented Chiefs team may be corrected, though, as Kansas City is two wins away from winning its second Super Bowl in four years.
