By Hank Blaine

The Kansas City Chiefs beat conference rival Cincinnati and stamped their ticket to Super Bowl LVII. For KC, it was their third Super Bowl in the past four seasons. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, coach Andy Reid, and the rest of the Chiefs are dead set on winning their second title since 2020. Check out the 7 reasons Mahomes and his mates get it done.

Patrick Mahomes plays for Kansas City

The first reason is obvious. The best quarterback to step onto a football field since Peyton Manning entered the NFL is a Chief.

Mahomes is so good that he lead KC to a victory while throwing off one foot. Patrick entered the game against the Bengals suffering from a high-ankle sprain. All he did was throw for 326 yards and 2 TDs while completing over 67% of his passes.

Defensive end Frank Clark is playing the best football of his career

During the season, Clark recorded just 5 sacks.

But in the playoffs, Frank has dominated. Clark sacked Trevor Lawrence in KC’s divisional win to go along with 3 solo tackles. Clark sacked Joe Burrow 1.5 times. He also had 2 solo and 3 total tackles against Cincinnati.

Rookie running back Isaiah Pacheco will be the fastest player on the field

Pacheco, a seventh round draft pick out of Rutgers, is a blur. Isaiah ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. Yet, somehow, nobody drafted him until Round 7.

Not only is Pacheco fast, but he also weight 216 lbs., meaning he’s not small. KC got a steal.

Kicker Harrison Butker doesn’t miss

Okay, Butker does miss sometimes. During the regular season, Harrison missed 6 field goals. 4- of-6 were at 50 yards or longer.

He went 3-for-3 versus the Bengals, though, including hitting the game winner as time expired. The man isn’t as cool as Magic Mahomes, but he’s close.

Rookie corner Trent McDuffie has turned into a shut down player

A first round draft pick from Washington, McDuffie played in just 11 regular season games but he played well enough for 7 pass defenses and 28 solo tackles.

During the playoffs, McDuffie had 3 solo tackles and 4 total versus Jacksonville. He had 6 solo tackles against the Bengals. Trent will be counted on to contain Philly wideout AJ Brown or Devonta Smith.

Coach Andy Reid will call the perfect game

Smith’s play-calling has been excellent. He had the perfect strategy to turn Mahomes’ injury into a positive. Instead of running Mahomes out of the pocket, Reid found a way to chip Cincinnati ends Sam Hubbard and Trey Hendrickson, thereby giving Patrick enough time to throw darts to Travis Kelce. Mahomes should be much healthier in the Super Bowl, which means Reid can open the playbook.

KC has the experience edge

Jalen Hurts and Devonta Smith won a national title while at Alabama. But the Super Bowl is something much different.

Three Super Bowl appearances in four seasons means Kansas City has a massive experience edge. The Chiefs’ experience will be a big factor.
