The Kansas City Chiefs are endeavoring something that hasn’t been done in 16 years.
At the point when Patrick Mahomes leads the Chiefs into Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Feb. 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tom Brady, Kansas City will hope to become the first team since the 2003-04 New England Patriots to win consecutive Super Bowls.
Fortuitously, the Chiefs will hope to do it against Brady, who was the quarterback for the Patriots. Two different teams recently had a chance to pull off the accomplishment. The Seattle Seahawks in 2014 got an opportunity, yet Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler captured Seattle QB Russell Wilson to seal the triumph for New England. In 2017 the Patriots tumbled to Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles, a year after they set up the best rebound in Super Bowl history against the Atlanta Falcons.
The chances might be stacked against the Chiefs since it hasn’t occurred in near 20 years, yet head coach Andy Reid is energized for the challenge.
“The thing I can see as a positive is the record, that we’ve persevered through some tough games,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said, “and so the mental toughness to do that individually each week was important, knowing that you’re going to get people’s best shot, and there’s the respect factor.
“They didn’t question each other, they didn’t question the coaches, they stayed focused and delivered,” Reid added. “However, that falls in, I’m not sure how to categorize that, but I just think that might have been the biggest challenge. You’ve seen that with teams, when things aren’t going right, they just kind of fall apart there. Our guys have not done that, they all stuck together and trusted.”
