In this post, we’ll look back on the 2019 Kansas City Chiefs season. The Chiefs won the Super Bowl Champion for the first-time in 50-years.
Kansas City defeated the San Francisco 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. The Chiefs won 31-20 after a second-half comeback.
This is their first Championship since the 1969 season. That year, they defeated the Minnesota Vikings, 23-7, at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana to win their first Championship in team history.
This was a special anniversary for the league, as it was their 100th-year anniversary. Former Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt was a very influential man in football, as he helped the American Football League merge with the National Football League.
He also came up with the name “Super Bowl” in a letter to former NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle. Hunt claimed that he came up with the name, because his children played with the “Super Ball” toy when they were young.
The Chiefs finished the regular season with a 12-4 record. They had the second-best seed in the AFC, as the Baltimore Ravens had a 13-3 mark.
Kansas City averaged to 28.2 points per game. Their talented defense gave up 19.3 points per contest.
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II appeared in 14 games, including 14 starts, and had an 11-3 record. He went 319 of 484 for 4,031 yards with 26 touchdowns and five interceptions.
He missed time due to a short-lived injury. Mahomes III averaged 287.9 passing yards per contest.
Damien Williams led the team with 111 carries for 498 yards and five touchdowns. Travis Kelce led the team with 97 receptions for 1,229 yards and five touchdowns.
Anthony Hitchens led the team with 88 tackles, while Frank Clark — who was acquired in the off-season in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks — led the team with 12 tackles for a loss.
Chris Jones — who is expected to be franchise tagged this off-season — also led the team with 20 quarterback hits. Jones also led the team with 9.0 sacks.
The big man could be in for a big payday if he is traded following the Chiefs using the franchise tag. Last off-season, Kansas City traded Dee Ford to the 49ers in exchange for a second-round pick, who then signed Ford to a massive pay day.
Tyrann Mathieu — who signed with the team before last season — led the team with four interceptions. Clark also led the team with three forced fumbles. Bashaud Breeland also led the team with two fumble recoveries.
Mathieu also led the team with 12 pass deflections.
Dustin Colquitt had 48 points for 2,126 yards. He averaged 44.3 yards per punt.
Harrison Butker went 34 of 38 in extra points on the season. He also went 45 of 48 in extra points.
Butker was perfect, as he went 9 of 9 from 20-29 range and 13 of 13 from 40-49 range. He also went 9 of 10 from attempts within 30-39.
But he was just 3 of 6 from 50 or longer.
Mecole Hardman led the team with 18 return attempts for 167 yards. He also led the team with 27 kickoff returns for 704 yards and one touchdown.
