The Chiefs have found multiple ways to win football games during the Mahomes and Reid era. They have been sported a balanced attack one year, then a run-heavy ball control offense in 2023 that leaned on Isiah Pacheco. In the beginning of the dynasty, Patrick Mahomes became famous for throwing deep bombs to the speedy Tyreek. Mahomes recently claimed that the deep ball may return in 2024.

Mahomes appeared on a recent episode of The Pat McAfee Show. He spoke on a variety of topics, including the Chiefs' deep passing game.

“I think this year we’re going to have a team that’s built to throw the ball deep,” Mahomes said. “Coach Reid’s been preaching it all off-season, were going to get back to throwing the deep ball. I have to be smart when we do that, but at the same time, I want to be that explosive offense that we’ve seen in the past and it takes pressure off the defense.”

Kansas City has struggled to find an established wide receiver since they traded Tyreek Hill to Miami two years ago.

This offseason the Chiefs added a pair of speedy wide receivers who could become dangerous weapons in the deep passing game. The Chiefs signed Marquise “Hollywood” Brown in free agency, a player who ran a 4.27 40-yard dash at his Oklahoma pro day in 2019. They also drafted Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy who holds the NFL Combine record for the fastest 40-yard dash at 4.21 seconds.

Mahomes should be able to get back to the explosive deep ball style that he’s been used to throughout his career.

Mahomes total yards were significantly down last season from the previous ones. He only threw for 4,183 yards compared to 5,520 the season before.

Can the Chiefs pull off the three-peat in 2024?

The Kansas City Chiefs have one goal for the 2024 season — make NFL history by becoming the first franchise to win three Super Bowls in a row.

It will be no easy task, but the Chiefs are the one team in the NFL who feel like they could pull it off.

One reason for confidence is that the Chiefs have so few holes on the roster. You have to start nitpicking to find flaws in this team. Yes Wanya Morris and Jawaan Taylor are not the ideal pair of tackles, but Mahomes is uniquely skilled at making magic in a chaotic backfield. Yes L'Jarius Sneed leaving for the Titans is a blow to the defense, but the Chiefs can put up points just as well as anyone in the league. If necessary, they will welcome a shootout any week of the season.

Kansas City has proven over the past two seasons that they can win in multiple ways. 31 other teams should be worried that this version of the Chiefs could be adding a deep ball element to their offense that could cause headaches for defenses.

The NFL schedule makers made a point of putting the Chiefs on a national stage as much as possible in 2024. The league — and the rest of Chiefs Nation — are hoping that they put on show for the record books.
