After his application for an NFL expansion team was ultimately denied, Lamar Hunt took it upon himself to found and establish the American Football League in August 1959. With the ultimate goal of bringing a professional football team to Dallas, Hunt became the owner of one of the AFL’s charter teams, the Dallas Texans.
After the job was declined by multiple people, Hunt hired University of Miami assistant Hank Stram as the head coach of the new franchise. Following a 14-14 win loss record after their first two seasons, Stram led the 1962 Texans to a 11-3 record in year three, capped off with a double overtime AFL Championship victory over the Houston Oilers.
Chiefs / Texans legend quarterback Len Dawson was named the MVP for the season, and the double overtime thriller still stands as the longest championship game in professional football history.
The 1962 championship would end up being the last game the franchise would play as the Dallas Texans. Despite being competitive against the Dallas Cowboys, Hunt felt that the Dallas market could not sustain a professional football team, electing to relocate and rebrand the franchise as the Kansas City Chiefs.
In 1966 Dawson and Steam led the Chiefs to their second AFL Championship, resulting in the team being invited to compete in the first AFL vs NFL World Championship game, now recognised as Super Bowl I. The Chiefs were defeated 35-10 by the Green Bay Packers.
After claiming their third AFL championship, Kansas City would once again represent the AFL in 1969, facing off against the NFL champion Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. Despite being heavy underdogs the Chiefs claimed a 23-7 victory, as Len Dawson was named MVP of Kansas City’s first Super Bowl championship.
The following season, the AFL–NFL merger became official as the Chiefs were placed in the American Football Conference’s West Division. In the 10-year history of the AFL, the Chiefs/Texans won 87 games and 3 AFL Championships.
In 1974 Stram led the Chiefs to their first losing season since 1963 and was subsequently fired, bringing about an era of decline for Kansas City. Over the next 14 years the Chiefs would record 10 losing seasons under five different coaches while still searching for their next playoff victory.
The tide began to turn in 1989, when Marty Schottenheimer was appointed as the head coach. Taking over a 4-11 team, Schottenheimer led the Chiefs to nine consecutive winning seasons, including 3 division titles and the team’s first playoff victory since the 1969 Super Bowl.
Schottenheimer resigned following a 7-9 season in 1998 as the Chiefs once again searched for their next long term coach and next playoff victory. Throughout the 2000’s Kansas City underwent another five head coaching changes for a return of two division titles before hiring long time Eagles coach, Andy Reid.
Taking over a 4-11 team, Reid led the Chiefs to a 11-5 record in his first season that resulted in a 1 point loss in the AFC wildcard game. Only two years later Reid would lead the 2015 Chiefs to their first playoff victory since 1993, defeating the Texans 30-0.
Reid has since led the Chiefs to four consecutive division titles and most recently the franchises first AFC conference championship and second Super Bowl victory. As much as Reid has had to do with the Chiefs recent success, credit must be equally shared to quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Since being drafted in 2017, Mahomes has established himself as one of the best players in football. After throwing a league leading 50 touchdown passes in 2018 Mahomes was named the NFL MVP, before leading the Chiefs to their second Super Bowl championship in 2019, where he was named Super Bowl MVP.
The Kansas City Chiefs put together a formidable title defense in 2020, securing the No. 1 seed in the AFC due to a 14-1 record after Week 16. Having already confirmed that they would finish the regular season with the best record in their division, conference and the league, the Chiefs rested their starters in Week 17, resulting in a loss to the Chargers. Kanas City concluded their 2020 regular season with a 14-2 win-loss record. For the second time in three years Patrick Mahomes finished in the top three regular season MVP votes, as the Chiefs were on their way to a sixth consecutive postseason.
After defeating the Browns and Bills in their first two playoff games, the Chiefs advanced to their second consecutive Super Bowl after claiming their second consecutive AFC championship, thanks to a 38-24 victory over Buffalo. Although they entered Super Bowl LV as the -3 point favorites, Kansas City’s depleted offensive line made it impossible for them to score against a ferocious Tampa Bay pass rush, resulting in a 31-9 loss. The defeat was Patrick Mahomes’ first loss by more than one score since becoming a starter in 2018.
The Kansas City Chiefs came up short in their quest to make their third straight Super Bowl in 2021 after losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
If you are a fan of the Kansas City Chiefs, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Kansas City Chiefs have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2023?
Our experts will provide an analysis on the Chiefs’ chances closer to the start of the 2022-23 season. In the meantime, you can check out our thoughts on the team before the 2021-22 season started:
The Chiefs look to bounce back from a heartbreaking loss to the Tampa Buccaneers in last season’s Super Bowl. After re-signing Patrick Mahomes to a staggering 10 year $450 million contract this offseason, the Chiefs look to avenge their failures from last season and win their 2nd Super Bowl in 3 years.
The front office lead by Andy Reid and Brett Veach have been busy this offseason with a flurry of impact additions and moves. Andy Reid remains at the helm of the Chiefs’ offensive powerhouse with a bunch of shiny new weapons.
Andy Reid is the second best coach currently in the league behind Belichick and has continuously led one of the NFL’s best offenses throughout his career as a head coach. The special thing about Andy Reid is despite the past success he has had, his offenses are continually evolving and getting better. Much like all the greats, Reid caters the offense to the needs and skills of his roster.
This season we expect Reid to continue to evolve. We don’t expect any form of Super Bowl hangover from the Chiefs as they have somehow gotten even better on paper, we expect their offense to remain as potent as ever. Keep a keen eye out for bizarre and unique play designs, trick plays and formations by Reid’s unit.
The Chiefs during the regular season last year were on cruise control and tried out several bizarre formations and plays which they later utilized in the playoffs. The Chiefs were inconsistent last year as they knew they were going to make the playoffs, so they played with a level of complacency leading to some easy losses. We don’t expect that this year as the Chiefs gun for glory with a Super Bowl loss fresh on their minds, so you can book the Chiefs for 13+ wins.
This offseason, the Chiefs went crazy releasing their 2 long tenured starters on the offensive line, Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz. Both of them were injured for the Super Bowl, so many assumed that they would return and help solidify the line next season. Instead the Chiefs release the old vets to go on a signing (and trading) spree to fix their offensive line.
The changes shocked the entire NFL as by the end of it, the NFL’s best team for 2 years looked even better. The Chiefs do have some questions, especially regarding Frank Clark who is in big legal troubles and is an anchor on that Chiefs defense. Overall though, the Chiefs have undoubtedly gotten better.
Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the league and his team has gotten better. After carrying the team for much of 2020, Mahomes and the Chiefs air attack looks like they are finally getting some help.
After a year of leaning heavily on throwing the ball, the Chiefs now look to attack the ground more than last season to take the pressure off of Mahomes. This is highlighted by the Chiefs revamped offensive line which includes the additions of Mike Remmers, Kyle Long, Austin Blythe, Joe Thuney and Orlando Brown Jr..
The last two names, Brown and Thuney are the most important additions and signal the return to the ground for the Chiefs as both of these players played at a All-Pro level on the offensive line with teams that focused mostly on running the ball well. The return to the ground is important as it allows the Chiefs to take advantage of their strong running back room and potentially Patrick Mahomes’ feet.
The heightened run game combined with the Chiefs potent air attack, gives Andy Reid and the coaching staff so many different options. The Chiefs should be able to attack any defense’s weakness, and have positioned themselves to once again be the best offense in the NFL.
The Chiefs defense is one that is overlooked due to the potent offense. The team has actually had a solid defense, and are particularly strong in their run defense. The Chiefs front 7 is their biggest strength, with Frank Clark, assuming he doesn’t go to jail, anchoring the unit.
Despite the Chiefs busy offseason, they have only added Taco Charlton and Daniel Sorensen this offseason to their defense. The Chiefs have not made many strides to improving their defense, with the Chiefs likely getting worse if they lose Frank Clark.
We don’t expect the Chiefs defense to be top 10, nor do we expect them to be better than last season. We do expect the Chiefs to be in the middle of the league, and be good enough. If the defense remains serviceable, the Chiefs team should make the Super Bowl. This Chiefs team is an offense first team and we don’t expect much to change this year. If the Chiefs win this year, it won’t be because of the defense.
The 2021-22 season is over and we take a look back at the Kansas City Chiefs betting history for the most recent season. We will provide more information in relation to the new 2022-23 season once information becomes available.

The Kansas City Chiefs finished the 2020 regular season with the best overall record in the NFL, 14-2. However, Kansas City surprisingly boasted just a 7-9 record against the spread in 2020, as the Chiefs had just six two-score victories from their 14 regular season wins.
When looking at total points, Kansas City ended up with an 8-8 over-under record, despite having having the No. 1 ranked offense in the league (1st in total yards, 1st in passing yards and 6th in total points).
Although they were upset as favorites in Super LV, Kansas City has opened as the +450 favorite to win Super Bowl LVI in 2022.
