The Chiefs won their first Super Bowl in 50 years Sunday night, and it doesn't seem like they think it will take another 50 years for their next one.

Following their 31-20 win over the 49ers, some Chiefs players said this was only the start.

“This is the beginning of something, baby,” defensive tackle Chris Jones said to reporters. “This is a dynasty. This is sack nation.”

“Not no Patriots dynasty,” defensive end Frank Clark added. “We got rid of them, too, earlier in the year. We’re going to do it more like the Chiefs dynasty.”

Patrick Mahomes wasn't as confident, as he knows how difficult winning year-in and year-out is.

“It’s pretty amazing the dynasty, or whatever you want to call it, the Patriots have had these last 15 to 20 years,” he said. “And so for me, it’s about taking it one year at a time. We came up short last year. We understood how hard the challenge was to get into this position again, and we found a way to do it.

"We understand next year when we come back … it’s gonna [take] the same heart, the same amount of tenacity and dedication every single day if we want to be here. And so I think we take it one year at a time, one day at a time, and try to put together great years.”

There's no question the Chiefs have a ton of talent and will be the favorites next season in the AFC, but sustaining it for a long period of time is a tough thing to do.

It really starts with Mahomes, who is still playing on his rookie contract, which allows Kansas City to spend on other positions. The star quarterback is due for a new contract and when that happens it will interesting to see what happens to the rest of the roster?

Will there still be a number of talented players surrounding Mahomes on offense? Will the defense be able to make plays like it did in the second half of this season?

That is what makes the Patriots' run so impressive. It truly is very difficult to have a long-lasting run of success with a salary cap in place.

So, can the Chiefs repeat the Patriots' run of dominance?

History says it will be easier said than done.
