Unless you’ve been hibernating for a year, it’s common knowledge that the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season. Oh, and we’ve got a lot to catch up with.
The Chiefs made some serious history with their Super Bowl 54 victory in February 2020. They had played in two Super Bowls before, but the last one was a win in 1970. That meant 50 separate years of Super Bowl wins for the franchise of Kansas City, a record wait.
As Patrick Mahomes dominates again during the regular season, the Chiefs have lost just two games (and only one with Mahomes to start), going 14-2 and claiming the AFC seed. This put Kansas City with a home path to Super Bowl 55 and a chance to repeat.

History of the Chiefs Super Bowl
When was the last time the Chiefs went to a Super Bowl?
You know that answer: 2020. The Chiefs played Super Bowl 54 in February 2020, beating the 49ers on a return led by Patrick Mahomes. It was the third great game appearance in franchise history, but the first since 1970.
|Super Bowl 1||January 15, 1967||Packers||Packers 35, heads 10||Bart starr|
|Super Bowl 4||January 11, 1970||Vikings||Heads 23, Vikings 7||Len dawson|

How many Super Bowls have the Chiefs won?
The Chiefs have won two Super Bowls, 50 years apart. Their first title came in 1970 over the Vikings, with Len Dawson taking home MVP honors. That was three years after the Chiefs lost in the first-ever Super Bowl, then known as the AFL-NFL World Championship. Bart Starr and the Packers got the better of them that day.
Of course, the Chiefs claimed their second ring a year ago. Patrick Mahomes led a comeback to beat the 49ers, 31-20.
How many teams have won consecutive Super Bowls?
At the start of the 2020 NFL regular season, seven franchises won back-to-back Super Bowls, and it’s a feat that has been accomplished eight times in total. The list:
- Steelers (twice)
If the Chiefs win Super Bowl 55 on February 7, 2021, they would be the eighth franchise to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles after winning in 2020. It would be the ninth overall that such a feat has been accomplished.
