The Kansas City Chiefs clearly deserve to be on top of the NFL Power Rankings heading into the 2020 offseason after winning Super Bowl 54.
After spending most of the season near the top of the NFL Power Rankings, the Kansas City Chiefs made it clear they deserve to be in the No. 1 spot entering the 2020 offseason after finishing as Super Bowl 54 champions.
In the two weeks leading up to the epic game, the Chiefs knew the San Francisco 49ers were going to be one of their toughest challenges to date when seeing how impressive Kyle Shanahan’s squad looked all season.
And while San Francisco seemed to be on their way to hoisting the Lombardi Trophy after appearing to be in control of the game for three quarters, Kansas City found a way to fight back when needed the most in the fourth quarter.
By outscoring the 49ers 21-0 in the final quarter of action, the Chiefs were able to hang on for the 31-20 victory to not only give Andy Reid his first Super Bowl title as a head coach in the NFL but put an official end to their Super Bowl drought.
The fact that Kansas City managed to overcome double-digit deficits in each of their three playoff games shows just how special this team truly is, and the scary factor is they could easily repeat as champions next season with ease after looking at all of their talent.
Of course, the Chiefs will also be facing additional pressure as defending champions now that Patrick Mahomes and company will have targets on their backs as the team to beat, but Kansas City seems up for the challenge.
Now that Kansas City is officially Super Bowl champions, and all 32 teams are expected to be in for a busy next few months, it only seems fitting to provide the latest NFL Power Rankings heading into the 2020 season.
