After capping off the 2024 Super Bowl with a walk-off touchdown pass to wide receiver Mecole Hardman in overtime, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes put the rest of the NFL on notice when asked if the Chiefs are officially a dynasty.

“Yeah, it’s the start of one. [But] we’re not done,” Mahomes, who was named the 2024 Super Bowl MVP, told CBS Sports’ Tracy Wolfson after the game. “I know we are gonna celebrate tonight… but we’re not done. We’ve got a young team and we’re gonna keep this thing going.”

After winning three championships in five years, with the latest two being back-to-back, the Chiefs are the first team since the early 2000s New England Patriots to be considered a dynasty, and the first team since the 2003 and 2004 Patriots to win back-to-back championships.

In a down year in which Kansas City looked like it was poised for a first-round exit in the playoffs, the Chiefs flipped a switch during the playoffs and managed to win another Super Bowl.
