0 Comments

The Kansas City Chiefs take on the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday night on NBC. Live coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with Football Night in America. Sunday night’s match-up will also be available via live stream on Peacock.

After hoisting up the Lombardi trophy in 2019 and then making a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance last year where they lost to Buccaneers 31-9, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs look to become the fourth team ever to reach 3 straight Super Bowls. However, NFL history has shown us that shaking off the “hangover” of a Super Bowl loss is an uphill battle.  Only 8 teams have made a repeat appearance to the Super Bowl the year after losing the big game. See below to find out which teams have achieved those feats.
