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 playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Kansas City Chiefs:
Andy Reid returns for another season as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs and he has this team on the verge of becoming the next great NFL dynasty. This will be his 10th year coaching the Chiefs and in the previous nine he has made eight playoff appearances and appeared in two Super Bowls, winning one of them.
He has never had a losing season in Kansas City and in eight of his nine seasons he has won double digit games. He has also got the Chiefs to four straight AFC title game appearances and he will be looking for his fifth this season and a second Super Bowl ring.
Patrick Mahomes returns as the starting quarterback for one of the most electric offenses in the National Football League. However, one of those electric weapons will be missing as Tyreek Hill departed for the Miami Dolphins. He still has Travis Kelce at his disposal and rookie Sky Moore as well.
In place of Hill they added Juju Smith Schuster and Mecole Hardman still provides a credible deep ball threat on any given play. Clyde Edwards Helaire returns as a starting running back for this team as he will look to recapture his rookie magic that made him an instant fan favorite in Kansas City.
Due to how solid the offense is, the defense is obviously the weakest side of the football for the Chiefs. They will have to replace the production of the honey badger Tyrann Mathieu after they could no longer afford him due to their salary cap issues.
However they added a pair of rookies in George Karlaftis and Trent McDuffie to strengthen up a defense that allowed 5.8 yards per play last year. Chris Jones is still the star on that defensive line but his health is called into question nearly every year and there’s a notable difference in the Chiefs defense when he is not on the field.
Last season the Kansas City Chiefs finished with a record of 12-5 and made it to the AFC Championship Game. They are expected to regress after losing Tyreek Hill over the season.
Oddsmakers expect the Kansas City Chiefs to win around 10 to 11 of their seventeen games during the 2022-23 National Football League season. The odds for betting the over on the win line are currently (-115), while the odds for the betting the under on the win line are currently (-105) heading into the 2022-23 season.
Their odds to win their division are currently (+175) which makes them one of the favorites in a loaded AFC West division, while their odds to bring home a Conference Championship are (+600) at the moment and considering they have made four straight you could argue that it’s a very valuable bet.
Their current odds to win the Super Bowl and bring home the Lombardi Trophy at the end of the season are listed at (+1000) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season. This puts them as one of the top favorites to bring home the title this season.
They are currently the favorites in fourteen of their seventeen games this season. As usual they are expected to win more games on their home field instead of having more wins on the road. They come into the 2022-23 National Football League season expected to be two possession favorites in three of their seventeen games as they are 10+ point favorites against Seattle, Jacksonville, and Houston.
Meanwhile they are expected to be two possession underdogs in zero of their seventeen games this season as they are three points or less underdogs in all the games that they aren’t favored in. It’ll be interesting to see how this team performs after all the changes during the offseason and while playing in such a stacked conference like the AFC.
Due to the massive amount of parity in the National Football League, you never truly know what is going to happen from season to season. But all signs point towards the Kansas City Chiefs being on the more successful end of the spectrum during the 2022-23 National Football League season.
