Sunday will be the Chiefs’ fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons.

If winning makes you the bad guy, though, Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes will take it any day of the week.
“Not necessarily. I think I just like winning,” Mahomes said when asked if he’s embracing the villain role prior to the Super Bowl. “If you win a lot and that causes you to be a villain, then I’m OK with it.
“But, at the end of the day, I’m going to enjoy playing the game and try to win as much as possible.”
CHIEFS’ PATRICK MAHOMES DOWNPLAYS TOM BRADY COMPARISONS AHEAD OF SUPER BOWL LVIII
Mahomes is 74-22 in his regular-season career with the Chiefs and has won 14 of his 17 playoff games, including two Super Bowls.
No one denies the Chiefs are a great team or that Mahomes is a top quarterback. They have earned the respect of the NFL.
But some NFL fans will always despise teams that always win.
At points during the regular season, it didn’t look like the Chiefs would make it to this point. Their offense didn’t look the same and had drop problems and a lack of discipline with bad penalties and other issues.
However, Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the Chiefs got hot at the right time.
