Ranking the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes-era Super Bowls ahead of 2024 title rematch vs. 49ers

LAS VEGAS — The Kansas City Chiefs are something of a mainstay on the Super Bowl stage, seeking their third Lombardi Trophy in the last five years. And Sunday’s Super Bowl LVIII matchup with the San Francisco 49ers promises to be a tight one, with both sides boasting MVP-caliber quarterbacks and physical, top-ranked defenses.
