Kansas City Chiefs 2023-24 NFL Season Recap

Kansas City Chiefs NFL Season Recap

Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting Online

Just like it did in 2022 and 2019, the 2023-24 NFL betting season concluded with the Kansas City Chiefs hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the fourth time in franchise history. Under Andy Reid’s watch and Patrick Mahomes navigation, the reigning eight-year AFC West champions have either bowed out in the AFC championship game or participated in the Super Bowl every season No. 15 has nestled in under center cementing himself with the likes of Joe Montana, Troy Aikman, and Tom Brady as the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. No AFC team entered the year with shorter odds to win the AFC (+350) than that of the reigning champs, yet they entered the Final Four with the third shortest odds of winning the conference (+423) behind the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills.

It’s incredible to look back on, but Kansas City actually entered the postseason as the No. 3 seed. After disposing of the Miami Dolphins in the wild card round, the Chiefs were forced to go on the road in order to receive a return invite to the Super Bowl. After toppling the Bills in a 27-24 thriller, Steve Spagnuolo’s defense dominated the Ravens in Baltimore to head back to the big game for the fourth time in the last five seasons. After cashing in as underdogs in the prior two games, the online sportsbook had Mahomes and Co. installed short underdogs in LVIII as well. When the dust cleared on the festivities, it was once again Reid and Mahomes on the podium after the team fought back from a 10-0 first quarter deficit to score the 25-22 overtime win. In doing so, the Chiefs moved to 10-3 SU and 11-1-1 against the spread the 13 times No. 15 caught points from linemakers in his brief six-year career.

Though Mahomes put forth one of his least impressive regular season campaigns throwing for a near career-low 4,183 yards and 27:14 TD/INT ratio, you simply can’t argue with his mastery when the lights turn on in the playoffs. Through 18 career games, No. 15 is 15-3 SU, has completed 456-of-672 passes (67.8%), thrown for 5,135 yards, owns a 41:8 TD/INT ratio, and rushed for 5 TD. All that has been accrued at the ripe age of 28 with him set to make millions more to bring even more championship greatness back to Kansas City. When his career is in the books, No. 15 will have made over a billion dollars playing quarterback in the National Football League. So far, the investment in his services is paying off in spades

I mean did anyone really think the 49ers 22-19 lead was going to hold up in overtime? If you did, you undoubtedly laid the points in Super Bowl LVIII betting or bleed 49ers red, gold, and white.

Regardless, the Chiefs took over with just over seven minutes remaining in the extra session. In true Chiefs fashion, Reid and Mahomes utilized nearly every second before sending Allegiant Stadium into a frenzy when he hooked up with Mecole Hardman Jr. for the game-winning score on a beautifully executed motion/misdirection play that the 49ers had no shot of defending. And with that, the 2023-24 season was in the books with Reid and Mahomes on the podium with the latter winning the third Super Bowl MVP Award of his career after leading the third of only seven double-digit comebacks in Super Bowl history.

Kansas City Chiefs 2024 Offseason

The Chiefs have already shown an ability to take home the hardware with a loaded offense and just got done exhibiting the ability to secure bragging rights with a loaded defense. So long as No. 15 is under center, Kansas City will be in the running to secure another Lombardi. Regardless of what upper management does to improve the roster in the offseason, that train of thought is already reflected on the odds to win Super Bowl LIX with the Kansas City Chiefs already installed +500 favorites to pull off the 3-peat.

At the top of GM Brett Veach’s list will be resigning both keystone players on the defensive side of the ball. Chris Jones and L’Jarius Sneed played huge roles in the defense’s dominance through the Super Bowl win. As such, they’ll be costly and the Chiefs are currently working with around $24M in cap space heading into the offseason. It’s tough not seeing upper management do something to retain each of their services, but the roster does have other needs with a shoring up of the offensive line in order and Mahomes sorely in need of a standout wide receiver to line up alongside Rashee Rice who impressed throughout his rookie campaign. Truthfully, it doesn’t really matter what’s done leading up to next year’s kick-off the way the football gods are currently smiling upon this franchise.

The Kansas City Chiefs were founded in 1960 as the Dallas Texans and charter members of the American Football League. Owner Lamar Hunt was also the founder of the AFL. Shortly after Hunt formed the AFL and his franchise, the NFL counter-attacked with a declaration of war. The Dallas Cowboys were created to fight the Texans in the Dallas and Fort Worth area. Following their 1962 AFL championship, the Texans were wooed to Kansas City, where they became profitable.

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the greatest teams in NFL history from 1966 through 1971. The Chiefs played in the first Super Bowl, losing to the Green Bay Packers. Kansas City then beat the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV. The AFL and NFL merged after that game.

Those Chiefs teams were loaded with Hall of Famers such as coach Hank Stram, quarterback Len Dawson, kicker Jan Stenerud, linebackers Willie Lanier and Bobby Bell, defensive backs Johnny Robinson, and Emmitt Thomas, and defensive linemen Buck Buchanan and Curley Culp.

The Chiefs went into a dark period from 1974 through 1988 before new team president Carl Peterson and coach Marty Schottenheimer made them into perennial contenders in the 1990s.

But it was not until Andy Reid arrived as head coach that the Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl and won it 50 years after their first title. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes surpassed Len Dawson as the best in franchise history.

The Chiefs are a proud legacy franchise. In fact, the AFC championship trophy is named after their late great Hall of Fame founder Lamar Hunt.
