PHOTOS: Chiefs in the Super Bowl over the years

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are headed back to the Super Bowl for the second-consecutive season, and are in the midst of a historic run with four appearances in five years, a distinction only held by runs from the Buffalo Bills in the early 90’s and New England Patriots between 2014 and 2019.

Super Bowl LVIII features a rematch of Super Bowl LIV, where the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. The Chiefs will look to improve their record in the big game to 4-2.

Chiefs Super Bowl game full of Taylor Swift ‘Easter Eggs’

As the team and Chiefs Kingdom prepare for Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, here’s a look at the franchise’s previous appearances through photos from the Associated Press and Getty Images:

Super Bowl I – Green Bay beats Kansas City 35-10

The American Football League champion Chiefs faced the National Football League champion Green Bay Packers in the very first Super Bowl at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. While Kansas City’s appearance was fitting given that founder Lamar Hunt coined the term “Super Bowl,” the game ended in defeat.

The Chiefs held the Packers close in the first half, but 21 unanswered points in the second half led to Green Bay taking Super Bowl I 35-10

Super Bowl IV – Kansas City beats Minnesota 23-7

Looking to avenge its Super Bowl I defeat, the Kansas City Chiefs were 12-point underdogs against the Minnesota Vikings in New Orleans.

The Chiefs leaned on 65 Toss Power Trap, a stout defense, and the leg of Jan Stenerud to jump out to a 16-0 halftime lead. The Vikings closed the gap to 16-7, but a 46-yard touchdown pass from Len Dawson to Otis Taylor sealed the deal, delivering Kansas City its first Super Bowl title in a 23-7 win

Super Bowl LIV – Kansas City beats San Francisco 31-20

While Kansas City fielded numerous competitive teams in the years that followed Super Bowl IV, the Chiefs fell short in the playoffs for one reason or another for 50 years in a row, until Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill and coach Andy Reid flipped the script.

Kansas City comebacks were a theme of the playoff run that sent the Chiefs to Miami, erasing deficits against the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional, Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship before doing the same to the San Francisco 49ers.

“Do we have time to run wasp,” became an immortal phrase in Chiefs lore, a play call where Mahomes found Hill deep down the left side of the field for a crucial throw and catch that kickstarted a comeback that ended with a 31-20 win, and Kansas City’s second Super Bowl title.

Super Bowl LV – Tampa Bay beats Kansas City 31-9

The Chiefs deftly navigated the strange landscape of the 2020 season, impacted by COVID-19 like everything was, and finished with a 14-2 record, earning the AFC’s top seed. Kansas City survived a scare from Cleveland in the AFC Divisional, bounced Buffalo in the AFC Championship, but lost a strange Super Bowl to the Buccaneers in Tampa.

Famous for being the first time a team played a Super Bowl in its home stadium, the favored Chiefs played an uncharacteristically flustered game, committing 11 penalties for 120 yards, turning the ball over twice, and failing to capitalize on Mahomes magic.

Any time it seemed that Mahomes managed to make something out of a broken play, Chiefs receivers didn’t capitalize. The Buccaneers made Kansas City pay for its mistakes, and after taking a 21-6 lead to halftime, put the game away with two third quarter touchdowns, winning 31-9.

Super Bowl LVII – Kansas City beats Philadelphia 38-35

After a disappointing loss to Cincinnati in the AFC Championship a season before, the Chiefs rolled through 2022 to another top playoff seed and avenged themselves by beating the Bengals to capture the AFC crown, earning a date in the desert with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Super Bowl LVII went down as an instant classic, with each team making its fair share of spectacular plays. In something of a throwback to the 2019 season, the Chiefs had to dig themselves out of a 10-point deficit, trailing 24-14 at halftime.

After drawing closer with a third quarter Isiah Pacheco touchdown, the Chiefs took the game by storm in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Eagles 17-8 with scoring plays to Kadarius Toney, Skyy Moore, and a game-winning field goal by Harrison Butker with only 8 seconds left to play.
