When was the last time the Chiefs made the Super Bowl?
The Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl in 2020, which was the first time the team made it back to the Super Bowl in 50 years. The team was led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid, who has proven to be quite a dynamic duo in the league since Kansas City drafted Mahomes.
In 2020, Kansas City played against the San Francisco 49ers and managed to pick up the second Super Bowl win in the team’s history with a score of 31-20. The win capped off what was a spectacular season, with Mahomes putting on an incredible performance throughout the playoffs, and the team’s defense solidifying its reputation as one of the best in the league.
They returned to the Super Bowl a year later in 2021; however, things didn’t go quite as well for Kansas City in 2021 as they fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9.
