When the Kansas City Chiefs went on a winning streak in February, they had one number on their mind: three.

Travis Kelce has almost automatically denied rumors of retirement, saying he will return to try to achieve the unprecedented feat of winning three consecutive Super Bowls.

No, not even Tom Brady, who has won seven of the 10 Super Bowls he’s played in, has won three in a row, but his New England Patriots were the last team to do so before Kansas City did (though they did play in three straight Super Bowls from LI to LIII).

If even Tom Brady can’t do it, I doubt anyone can.

“With the draft coming up, a very tough schedule, the turnover in free agency and the motivation of the guys, it’s a big challenge to accomplish all three of those things two years in a row…” Brady said on “The Herd” on Monday. “It’s not a 50% chance that it’s going to happen. It’s a lot less than that. The guys are going to have to show up every day and work as hard as they always have.”

But he wouldn’t be particularly surprised.

“That doesn’t mean the Chiefs can’t get it done. Believe me, everyone probably sees them as one of the favorites to get it done…” he said.

“They have a great coach in Andy Reid. He never looks back,” Brady said. “He doesn’t say, ‘I was great last year, so I’m going to be great again this year.’ He’s a veteran, he’s experienced, he’s a championship-level coach and he holds his guys accountable. And they have a great quarterback in Patrick.” [Mahomes]You know, when he’s on the field, he’s one of the best football players in the NFL.

“They have a lot of great players but it’s a huge task to win it again.”

Kansas City drafted wide receiver Xavier Worthy, the all-time 40-yard dash runner, in the first round. Their only big loss was cornerback Rujarius Snead, whom they traded for the pick.
