Tony Romo says the Kansas City Chiefs are a dynasty after Super Bowl LVIII win
The Kansas City Chiefs pulled off an exhilarating overtime victory in Super Bowl LVIII against the San Francisco 49ers, thanks to some late-game heroics by quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Mecole Hardman, a former second-round pick, began his career in Kansas City but departed last offseason for a chance at more playing time with the New York Jets. However, Hardman found his way back to the Chiefs halfway through the regular season.
The speedy wide receiver only had 17 total receptions entering Super Bowl LVIII, but everything came full circle on the game’s final snap. Hardman reeled in the game-clinching score and will always be considered a legend in Kansas City.
Superstar tight end Travis Kelce started slowly with only one snag in the first half, but his eight receptions for 92 yards in the second half and overtime were crucial to the Chiefs’ comeback efforts.
Andy Reid won the third Super Bowl championship of his illustrious NFL career, becoming only the fifth head coach to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at least three times.
But the true star of the show was Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes. His 333 passing yards, 66 rushing yards, and two touchdown tosses elevated the Chiefs to their third championship in the past five years.
Tony Romo praises Patrick Mahomes following third Super Bowl victory
Mahomes is only the third signal-caller to win three Super Bowl MVP awards, joining Tom Brady (5) and Joe Montana (3) in the pantheon of NFL legends. Fans know the true mark of an elite quarterback is what they do when the lights shine the brightest.
Kansas City is the first franchise since the New England Patriots to secure back-to-back Super Bowl titles. The CBS broadcast claimed the Chiefs are now officially a dynasty, and Mahomes agreed with that notion.
Tony Romo said immediately following the win that Patrick Mahomes is the “Michael Jordan of his generation.” Although Jordan excelled in a different sport, the comparison tracks in terms of showing up when their squad needs them most.
When reporters asked Mahomes whether or not he was ready to use the word dynasty, he answered confidently. “Yeah, it’s the start of a dynasty. But we are not done. We will keep this thing going.”
At age 28, Mahomes is on pace to match or surpass every individual accolade in the record books. He has the same amount of rings as Brady did at this stage in his career and is only one regular season MVP behind the former Patriots icon.
Sustainable success is no easy feat in the NFL, but the Chiefs and Mahomes are set up for another decade of contending for titles. As long as the injury bug doesn’t strike and the franchise continues upgrading the roster, there is seemingly no end in sight.
The question is no longer, “Is this a dynasty?”
The question is, “How many Super Bowls will the Chiefs end up with before Mahomes retires?”
