The Chiefs fell just short of the Super Bowl this season, but running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire says he and his teammates are confident they’ll return a year from now.

Edwards-Helaire said today on PFT Live that as soon as the Chiefs’ loss to the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game ended, his teammates were talking about why they believe they have what it takes to win that game next year.

“Next season we know that we can do it, we know that we can get the guys to come back next season, and we know we have the bond to do it,” Edwards-Helaire said.

The Chiefs have made it to the AFC Championship Game four straight seasons, losing it twice, losing the Super Bowl once and winning the Super Bowl once. They’re a solid bet to make it to the AFC Championship Game again next season, but at this point the expectations are so high in Kansas City that anything short of the Super Bowl would be a disappointment.

  1. Only if they get the Mahomes from two years ago–before he signed his big contract. That Mahomes was hungry. This year’s Mahomes The Mahomes who won the Super Bowl only had five interceptions and three fumbles. The newly-affluent Mahomes this year had thirteen interceptions and nine fumbles. He was also sacked eleven times more and his QBR dropped by ten points.

  2. Welcome to cap hell Clyde. The Chiefs will be a good but not great team for a foreseable future.

  3. Jerick McKinnon should get more playing time as a dual threat. He played well in the playoffs.

  4. I sure wish we had not drafted CEH is the first round. We passed up better players. CEH is not good enough.

    Yeah could have had Johnathan Taylor. But Reid would have only had him carry 10-12 times a game so maybe it wouldn’t have mattered

  6. Travis Kelce is the key to the team and he is not getting any younger. For the Chiefs to have a chance, Travis will need to stay healthy and his play must remain at the highest level.

  7. Along the way Mahomes decided that scrambling around and looking for the big play on every down was winning football. And it is to a certain degree, just not against good times in the playoffs.
