The Kansas City Chiefs have proven time and time again they are on the verge of becoming a dynasty. In just the three short seasons with Mahomes at the helm, Kansas City has made themselves a powerhouse.

It is safe to say that even with a recent Super Bowl loss, the Chiefs are still a force to be reckoned with. Coming into the 2021 season, the Chiefs have opened up as the favorites to win the Super Bowl.

The rest of the AFC is starting to fall behind even more. After three straight AFC championship appearances and two consecutive trips to the Super Bowl, the Chiefs are miles ahead of the AFC.

Chiefs Ruling the AFC

Of course, the AFC had been ruled by the New England Patriots for the last 20 years, it seems. However, with Tom Brady in the NFC, it allowed the Chiefs to continue their run.

Now, the Chiefs have other teams to worry about. Of course, in just the 2020 playoffs alone, teams were throwing some new challenges at Kansas City.

We saw the Cleveland Browns dominate the Steelers in the first round, a team who started 11-0. With their dynamic running game and terrific defense, many thought they would beat the Chiefs.

The one team Kansas City will have to worry about the most in the AFC is the Buffalo Bills. It is easy to see they were the second-best team in the AFC this past year, with an appearance in the championship game.

With Josh Allen‘s emergence and now a number one receiver in Stefon Diggs, the Bills could be a threat to Kansas City. While that may be true, it won’t happen for a while.

That statement is no shot at the Bulls, but more a testament to how good Kansas City has been and will be. There may have been a time when most people thought the Ravens would be that team, but it is safe to say Kansas City has its number.

The AFC is getting more competitive, but it still is not close. While the Chiefs lost the Super Bowl pretty badly, they still own their conference, respectively.
