The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV this past February after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. It was the Chiefs first victory of a Super Bowl in 50 years, but may not be their last, and they are looking to repeat the feat. They have a good shot at going all the way again this year, and the odds being put up by bookmakers reflect that sentiment.
At the very least, they have a good chance of taking the AFC West, according to what almost all NFL.com analysts predict.
The Chiefs Look For A Repeat Season
NFL.com analysts overwhelmingly expect the Chiefs to take the AFC West in their quest to repeat last year’s performance. With Patrick Mahomes ready to show off his talents as quarterback again, the team already has an advantage. Although Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs’ home field, plans on limiting its fans capacity, Kansas City won’t be too concerned about playing in front of an invisible crowd.
Thirty-three out of 35 NFL.com analysts picked them to win the West, which is indicative of the talent and strength coach Andy Reid and the rest of the crew will be bringing back again this year. Gregg Rosenthal is one analyst who stands out as a favorite supporter of the Chiefs, given their lineup, and expects great things. The only issue that may arise comes from the fact that other teams have now had more time to understand, and prepare for, Mahomes, and could be better equipped to keep him under control.
The Chiefs have high odds of winning Super Bowl LV and are among the favorite teams. They currently are getting NFL odds of around +550, give or take, and many analysts are on board. Analyst Bryan DeArdo also expects teams to give the Chiefs more grief this season, but, with the help of new additions such as rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire out of LSU, Kansas City Chiefs will still be a formidable opponents and could repeat if things go their way.
The Chiefs Sport New Jewelry
The Chiefs received their Super Bowl rings this past Tuesday in a ceremony that was held on the field at Arrowhead. This was a huge moment for everyone, but especially for Reid, who has waited a long time to capture an NFL championship.
He said after revealing his new ring, “You wear it for special occasions. Or if you want a free cheeseburger, you just point right there and show them the ring and you might get one. I’ve had a little bit of a sneak peek at a picture of one, so I kind of know what it looks like on a piece of paper. But I look forward to seeing it just like we’re all looking forward to seeing it. I mean, there’s such hard work that’s gone into it.” Reid is convinced of the value this ring has for a coach like him. Indeed, this is a lifetime achievement for his career.
The Chiefs’ Super Bowl ring has some remarkable features, like over ten carats of gemstones, that includes 255 diamonds and 36 genuine rubies, which turns it into something really valuable. The centerpiece of the ring represents the Chiefs’ Arrowhead logo, which is formed by 60 diamonds in honor of the franchise’s 60th season. It has 16 cut rubies that symbolize the ten AFC West Division titles and six postseason appearances under coach Reid.
Furthermore, the ring has 50 diamonds around the logo in the form of the Lombardi Trophy to observe the 50 years between Chiefs’ Super Bowl wins (the first, in 1969, was the final championship game between the AFL and NFL before the two merged), as well as an extra 122-diamond cascade along the ring’s top edges. This symbolizes the team’s 22 postseason appearances and the 100th season of the NFL.
