Any Given Sunday 🤔
Dynasties are becoming increasingly rare in the NFL. For me, a dynasty in sports is hard to define, but I believe a team needs to win at least three championships with the same core of players and the same head coach. Now, there could be some exceptions, but that’s the general definition we’ll go with.
The Kansas City Chiefs are the closest thing we have to a dynasty in the NFL currently and consistently in the NFL news cycle. If they win the Super Bowl this year, there’s no way to deny that they are a dynasty. They’d have three championships in five years, plus back-to-back wins. Even if they don’t win this year, they’d likely be considered a dynasty if they win again in the next two or three years.
Chiefs have most wins of any 5 year stretch in nfl history.
I know it won’t be easy, but if KC can win it this year it’s one of best runs ever. Would be a true dynasty & have the wins on top of titles.

However, there are some strong candidates to rival the Chiefs as the next NFL dynasty. The Baltimore Ravens are interesting. Likely the NFL MVP quarterback, based on NFL rumors, Lamar Jackson just keeps getting better and is only 27.
If he beats the Chiefs in the AFC Championship and goes on to win the Super Bowl, the Ravens are scary for the next few years and could be in the mix to be a dynasty. They have an elite quarterback, an elite head coach, and an elite front office. That’s exactly what you need to become a dynasty.
“You start to wonder, is this maybe the end of the Chiefs dynasty?”

This could be controversial, but the Houston Texans are super interesting, and it’s all because of quarterback C.J. Stroud and head coach DeMeco Ryans. Stroud is -arguably- already a top-five quarterback in the NFL and Ryan looks like a superstar head coach. If they can keep building out the rest of the roster, this could be an incredible team for years to come.

The Green Bay Packers are also a team to watch. They somehow came within striking distance of the NFC Championship this season, and Jordan Love looks like the real deal. They also had the youngest roster in the NFL playoffs, which means that they’ll only get better. They’re going to win a lot of NFL games over the years.

Let’s also talk about the Detroit Lions. Their roster is also really young and Brad Holmes is one of the best general managers in the league. The only thing that concerns me is Jared Goff. He’s a very good quarterback, but -typically- only the best of the best lead dynasties. If they could eventually find a way to upgrade at quarterback, the sky’s the limit for what this team could be.
