The Kansas City Chiefs are looking to return to the Super Bowl for the third time in the past four years. Here’s when they last won the Lombardi Trophy.
Entering the 2022 season, the Kansas City Chiefs‘ path to the Super Bowl was supposed to get more difficult. They traded away star wide receiver Tyreek Hill and watched as their division rivals in the Los Angeles Chargers, Denver Broncos, and Las Vegas Raiders get better on paper. Instead, the Chiefs cruised to an AFC West title, got through the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round, and are now one win away from reaching Super Bowl 57. All they need to do is defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
For Kansas City’s Super Bowl history, you don’t have to look to far to see when the last time they won the Lombardi Trophy.
When was the last time the Chiefs won the Super Bowl?
The Chiefs won the Super Bowl back in the 2019 season.
In that playoff run, Kansas City defeated the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round and the Tennessee Titans in the Conference Championship Game to clinch their spot in Super Bowl 54, where they faced off against the San Francisco 49ers.
Kansas City overcame a 20-10 deficit late in the third quarter to defeat the 49ers 31-20.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP after completing 26-of-42 pass attempts for 286 yards and two touchdowns, while throwing two interceptions. Mahomes also ran for 29 yards and one touchdown on nine carries.
