It’s incredibly hard to build a dynasty in the NFL, but the Kansas City Chiefs will be gunning for back-to-back championships this upcoming season. According to Sammy Watkins, the Chiefs will definitely win consecutive Super Bowl titles.
Watkins appeared on ESPN’s First Take to discuss the team’s outlook for the 2020 season. He admit that he doesn’t see another team slowing down Kansas City, as he said “We’re for sure going back-to-back this year. This is the run-it back tour.”
Stephen A. Smith couldn’t help but question Watkins’ confidence. The charismatic ESPN personality has concerns about Kansas City’s defense and whether or not it could actually sustain a consistent level of play.
Even if the defense doesn’t play extremely well, Watkins is so confident in the offense that he thinks that unit can carry the franchise to three or four titles.
“You have the best head coach, you have the best quarterback, one of the best wide receiver groups ever,” Watkins said. “Now with the young guy, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, we have one of the best running back groups. Best tight end. What makes Stephen A. think that we can’t go out there and win three or four in a row?”
Watkins chose to take a pay cut just to remain in Kansas City. It’s evident that he loves the culture and locker room there.
Last season, Watkins had 52 receptions for 673 yards and three touchdowns. He came up huge when it mattered most, hauling in five passes for 98 yards in Super Bowl LIV against the San Francisco 49ers.
Do you think the Chiefs will successfully defend their title this season?
