The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last season and their reward is getting to kick off the NFL season. How will the Chiefs do in 2020?
After coming oh so close to making the Super Bowl in the 2018 season, the Kansas City Chiefs did what they couldn’t do the previous year and made it to the big game in the 2019 season. They were trailing by ten points with seven minutes left, but overcame the odds once again and won their first championship in 50 years.
Now the Chiefs will look to defend their Super Bowl title and be the first team to go back-to-back since the Patriots did it in the 2003 and 2004 seasons. There’s a reason it’s been that long since a team has won back-to-back titles – Winning a Super Bowl is hard!
For the Chiefs, however, this is their window. They have a lot of the same players returning for the 2020 season and that is a huge reason as to why they’re Super Bowl favorites.
Every year before the season kicks off, we here at KC Kingdom go through the schedule and predict the result of each game. Last year, we had predicted the correct record, but the losses didn’t come against who we thought they would. This year’s participants are site expert Leigh Oleszczak and contributors Cameron Black, Chris Clark, and Cullen Jekel.
How this works is the four of us were assigned four games a piece and simply predicted how we thought that game would go. We obviously can’t predict injuries or other unforeseen circumstances, so these games are predicted assuming that the knowledge we have about both teams in present day are still the case when the game rolls around.
With each game, we’ll provide a preview of the match-up as well as a prediction and a player who we think will pop (sans Mahomes, of course).
With all of that said, let’s get started!
