The Kansas City Chiefs are your Super Bowl LIV champions and look set to dominate the AFC, along with the Baltimore Ravens, for years to come.

Congratulations and celebrations are in order for the Kansas City Chiefs as they celebrate their second Super Bowl title in franchise history. The team they’ve put together is top-notch and they have tons of youth and talent to repeat as champs in 2020. To do that, they’ll have to get by the Baltimore Ravens on an annual basis, as the purple and black look to be contenders, as well.

The Chiefs and Ravens both have the most important part of building a championship-caliber roster: a young quarterback on a rookie deal. Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson will be entering their fourth and third seasons in the league respectively. Each has won an NFL MVP award with the former winning a Super Bowl MVP. The two are perhaps the two best players in the NFL right now.

Joining them are young stars ready to explode if they haven’t already. Kansas City has some speedsters in guys like Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman while Baltimore has its own in Marquise Brown. Both teams also stud tight ends in Travis Kelce (Chiefs) and Mark Andrews (Ravens). Add in two stellar offensive lines and you have the two best offenses in football.

The Chiefs just proved that you don’t need an elite defense to win a championship, but having a good one helps a lot. Captained by guys like Tyrann Mathieu and Frank Clark, Kansas City’s defense is not to be taken lightly.

The Ravens have a good defense to their credit, too. The big boy Brandon Williams is the most veteran guy there but corners Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters stand out brighter than the rest of the pack.

From top to bottom, these teams are absolutely loaded. The Chiefs and the Ravens are undoubtedly the cream of the crop in the AFC. Sure, the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans can’t be overlooked, but they’re far from the heavy-weight teams that Kansas City and Baltimore have built. When it comes to who will be in the Super Bowl representing the AFC each year, it’s a safe bet it’ll be the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens.

The AFC has typically been a top-heavy division historically and that doesn’t look to change with the path that the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens are on. Congrats again to the Chiefs! I’m sure you guys will be back again, just like I’m sure the Ravens will be right there with you guys.
