24. 2019 Kansas City Chiefs
Season Results: 12-4, Won Super Bowl LIV
Is there an offense in league history that could keep up with the ’19 Chiefs? You’d certainly be hard-pressed to find one. Once Patrick Mahomes took over as a starter in Kansas City, the rest of the league immediately knew they were in trouble. Mahomes’ elite arm strength and playmaking ability made a Chiefs offense which featured all-time great TE Travis Kelce and arguably the fastest player ever Tyreek Hill virtually impossible to defend.
KC faced an early 21-point deficit in its first playoff game, but showcased its explosiveness by scoring 51 points on the Texans over the final three quarters to move on. The Chiefs would go on to defeat Tennessee in the AFC Championship game setting up a premier matchup against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl. The 49ers held KC in check for most of the game, but KC’s offense detonated for 21 points in the fourth quarter for the win. Just when you think you had the Chiefs in check, Mahomes would pull a rabbit out of his hat and deliver a big play to the unguardable duo of Kelce and Hill.
