The Kansas City Chiefs have some impressive streaks going as they prepare to play in Super Bowl 54. The Chiefs have won 10 or more games in five straight seasons and another impressive streak is winning the AFC West Division Championship for four straight years. The Chiefs, by winning the AFC Championship game on Sunday, have now won eight games in a row heading into their Super Bowl matchup against San Francisco.

One streak the Chiefs did not want to be a part of is losing at home in the AFC Championship game two years in a row. This motivation proved crucial to the team’s success in this year’s game. Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid addressed this after Sunday’s win stating, “Not a good feeling” in the team’s loss to New England. “We were all bitter.” Team took it as a challenge to get back there, “but lots of things go in to it.” To get all the way back to this point and then be successful Reid adds, “Proud of the guys.”

Now it’s on to Super Bowl 54 in Miami, Florida where the Chiefs hope to begin a new streak, this one counting consecutive Super Bowl championships.
