Peter Schrager’s incredible streak of picking Super Bowl champions lives on with Chiefs win

Four years ago, Peter Schrager picked the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl before the season started.

Schrager also correctly picked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win Super Bowl LV and the Los Angeles Rams to win Super Bowl LVI before again correctly picking the Chiefs to win it all last year.

The NFL Network personality correctly picked them again this year, marking the fifth consecutive year he’s correctly picked the Super Bowl winner.

“It’ll be 49ers vs. Chiefs in Vegas,” Schrager said in September. “The winner, with the exact score being 34-28, and with second-year cornerback Trent McDuffie returning a pick-6 late in the fourth quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs will yet again be your Super Bowl champion.”

He may have missed on the score and McDuffie’s interception, but the Chiefs made his winning side prediction come true by beating the San Francisco 49ers in a 25-22 overtime thriller Sunday night in Las Vegas.

“See everybody next September!” the “Good Morning Football” contributor said on X after the game.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes turned in another performance for the ages, throwing for 333 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for a team-high 66 yards. The performance earned him his third Super Bowl MVP honor.

With the win, Kansas City became the ninth team to pull off a Super Bowl repeat and the first team to do so in 19 years, ending the longest back-to-back drought in Super Bowl history. The Chiefs also became the seventh franchise in the NFL with at least four Super Bowl victories and the sixth to win three over a five-season span.
