Andy Reid isn't ready to declare the Kansas City Chiefs a dynasty, but he'll happily accept the label from others.

Speaking at a press conference Monday morning, the Chiefs head coach said he'll let the media decide whether his team deserves to be called a dynasty after winning Super Bowl LVIII.

"Yeah, well, listen, it's history. How you write it will be how you write it," Reid said, according to Pro Football Talk's Myles Simmons. "Whether it's a dynasty - we won't determine if it's a dynasty, you guys do. But I would tell you that it's as fine a group as I've been around, and I've been very fortunate, been around some great organizations, good teams. This group here and the organization are tremendous.

"If somebody said dynasty, tagged it onto it, I would be very proud of that."

The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime Sunday to win their second consecutive Super Bowl championship and third in five years. The New England Patriots were the last team to win back-to-back Super Bowls in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

Kansas City is now in a position to become the first team in NFL history to three-peat, though Reid isn't getting ahead of himself.

"You know, we'll see," he said. "We've got great competition in the AFC West. We just had some hirings, coaching hirings, and these guys are good football coaches with good quarterbacks, good teams. So, it's not going to just be easy."
