Patrick Mahomes says he is really motivated to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to back-to-back Super Bowl wins. In February, 27-year-old Mahomes won his second ring after leading the Chiefs to a 38-35 win over the Philadelphia Eagles in a thriller Super Bowl.
Going into the 2023 season, the Chiefs are again considered among the top favorites for the Super Bowl. “Everybody’s motivated by that. You should be motivated to do it again. When you have that parade, when you go through the offseason that I’ve been through, you want to do it again.
You only get those opportunities by winning the Super Bowl. And so for us, we want to make sure that we can build up and try to win that Super Bowl again because that moment, that feeling is something that you just wanted to grab every single time that you get the opportunity to do it," Mahomes said, via ESPN.
Mahomes wants back-to-back Super Bowl wins
Mahomes has been to three Super Bowls and he has two Super Bowl rings in his collection. In 2019, Mahomes won his first Super Bowl after leading the Chiefs to a big comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers.
The following year, the Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl but suffered a 9-31 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Mahomes suggests he has learned from what happened during the 2020 season and will do everything he can not to allow that to happen again in 2023.
"This time I think I'm going to try to really push and motivate guys to continue to try to get better even though we're winning football games. Let's not be satisfied with just winning [but also] finding ways to get better every single week.
Whenever you get that opportunity, you don't let it squander. You really take advantage of it and it's hard. I think it's going to be the hardest it's ever been. When you look at the AFC, there's almost every team you can see a path for them getting to the playoffs.
I know I said that every year, but I think this year is real. We know week in and week out it's going to be a challenge for us and let's get better and try to win as many football games as possible and put ourselves in that position," Mahomes said.
