How many Super Bowls have the Chiefs won? All of Kansas City’s past victories and appearances


There is something to be said for the heart of a champion. The Kansas City Chiefs have proven this time and time again. So it will be difficult to bet against the defending champions when they face the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday night at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Chiefs 2024 season before the Super Bowl

Kansas City had an eventful regular season, but still won 11 games and captured the AFC West title for the eighth straight year. The Chiefs then hit the road in the playoffs, which many thought would lead to their downfall given their relative lack of playoff experience away from the friendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium.

Turns out it didn’t matter. Defense and timely performances from key offensive superstars played an important role in the victories in Buffalo And Baltimore.

“We know nothing is going to be given to us. We have an even bigger target on our back than last year,” Chiefs safety Justin Reid said last Saturday. “But as far as the mentality in the room, we’re working to continue this dynasty and continue to build on what we did last year, not just rest on our laurels of what we’ve done.”

Kansas City has positioned itself as the NFL’s gold standard in the post-Tom Brady era. Brady’s New England Patriots have won six Super Bowls, tying them with the Pittsburgh Steelers for the most wins in NFL history. However, if the Chiefs can get the job done on Sunday night, they will be more than halfway to matching that mark. And with a young superstar quarterback in Patrick Mahomes, a sure-fire Hall of Fame coach in Andy Reid and a front office that always seems to be revamping the roster, there’s no reason to believe that they won’t continue to be a perennial Super Bowl contender for the foreseeable future.
