The Chiefs had a disappointing end to their season as they blew a 21-3 lead to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. After the loss, Patrick Mahomes acknowledged it was considered as a failure since the Super Bowl is their standard.
"The leaders on this team know this isn't our standard,'' Patrick Mahomes said after the loss. "We want to win the Super Bowl. Whenever you taste winning the Super Bowl, anything less than that is not success.
"It's definitely disappointing. Here, with this group of guys that we have, we expect to be in that game and win that game, and anything less than that is not success. We'll go back and look at all the things we did well, the adversity we battled through, the team we became at the end of the season and try to learn from the mistakes we made and try to be better next year."
Patrick Mahomes vowed to return better and to lead the team to another Super Bowl victory. "A few plays here and there we could have four chances at the Super Bowl ... You can't let this end what we have here,'' Mahomes said.
"You have to make sure you continue to battle, continue to get better and try to find ways to win Super Bowls."
