    Kansas City Chiefs History

    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. 

    Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on Kansas City Chiefs

    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 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Kansas City Chiefs have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Kansas City Chiefs:

    Preview on Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach: Andy Reid

    Entering his 22nd year as the head coach of an NFL franchise, the 2019 season saw Andy Reid finally capture that illusive first Super Bowl. With a career record of 207-128 at Philadelphia and Kansas City, Reid has led 15 playoff campaigns in 21 seasons, including six playoff appearances in his seven years with Kansas City. 

    Reid’s 207 career wins as a head coach currently places him as the sixth most winningest coach in NFL history. Ranked as the #1 team in the league coming into the 2020 season, Reid will once again have the luxury of coaching arguably the greatest player on the planet Patrick Mahomes. There is no evidence to suggest that in the coming years, Andy Reid will not add to his impressive winning record, and potentially collect a few more Super Bowl rings along the way.   

    Preview on Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Weapon: Patrick Mahomes, QB

    At 24 years of age, the majority of professional quarterbacks in the NFL will play out their whole careers, and not achieve what Patrick Mahomes has in only two seasons as a starter. A 5000 yard, 50 touchdown MVP season as a 23-year-old, backed up with a Super Bowl Championship and MVP at 24. Coming into 2020, The Chiefs are the preseason favourite to take home the Super Bowl and Mahomes the deserved favourite for the MVP award.

    Currently sitting in their own class, Lamar Jackson looks to be Mahomes’ biggest threat for both individual and team success, making the imminent battle for the AFC conference one of the most anticipated playoff propositions in the coming years. If Mahomes’ first two seasons are any indication, we are witnessing perhaps the greatest quarterback talent this league has ever seen.

    Preview on Kansas City Chiefs Defensive Weapon: Tyrann Mathieu, S

    To edge out Patrick Mahomes for the Kansas City Chiefs Team MVP award in a year that saw the Chiefs win the Super Bowl, and Mahomes win the Super Bowl MVP, you must be quite the player. 

    Well, Tyrann Mathieu did just that. Based on the Chiefs players and coaches votes Mathieu was the guy. In his first season with Kansas City, Mathieu was selected to the All-Pro First team for a season that saw him tally 75 tackles, four interceptions and 2.0 sacks. 

    Granted, Mahomes may be the best player on the planet, however, Mathieu was voted the team MVP by his teammates for his ability to play anywhere on the field, as well as his leadership. If the Chiefs have any aspirations of going back to back, Tyrann Mathieu is going to be a big part of it.

    Kansas City Chiefs Betting & Odds History

    Following their dramatic 31-20 victory over the 49’ers in Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs deservedly opened as +650 favourites to take out Super Bowl LV. Since the markets opened in February the Chiefs have come in further, with current odds of +600 to go back to back. However, the Ravens, Saints, Buccaneers and 49’ers are hot on their heels in terms of championship favouritism. 

    Patrick Mahomes leads Lamar Jackson, Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott and Tom Brady as the +420 favourite to take out the league’s MVP award, while Andy Reid is +1975 to take out his second Coach of the Year award. 

    Due to their Super Bowl favouritism, no team has better odds to win their respective division than the Chiefs at -450. Leading the Chargers (+900), Broncos (+800) and Raider (+1200) to take out the AFC West division. 

    Kansas City has also opened with a league-high line of 11.5 for regular season wins. Over 11.5 wins is favoured at -125, while the under currently has odds of +105. The Chiefs won 12 games in the 2019 season which included a Patrick Mahomes knee injury. 

    Having won 12 games in three of the last four seasons as well as a fixture that matches them up against teams such as the Dolphins, Jets, Falcons and Panthers, the Chiefs should secure over 11.5 wins.
