Tom Brady doesn't believe the Kansas City Chiefs becoming the first team to win three straight Super Bowls is such a sure bet.

"All these teams in the NFL are very competitive, they are all well coached," Brady said on "The Herd" Monday. "The margin of error is razor-thin, so to win one Super Bowl is extremely difficult. To win two back-to-back - what the Chiefs have done - as we know in the history of the sport: nearly impossible. To win three in a row, there's a reason no one's done it. The reason no one has won three in a row is because it's hard to win one in a row."

He added: "To put three of those together in back-to-back-to-back seasons with drafting last, a very hard schedule, all the turnover in free agency, guys continuing to be motivated, it's a big challenge."

Brady said the odds of the Chiefs accomplishing the unprecedented three-peat is "way less" than 50%. However, he praised Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, and Travis Kelce, among others, for providing Kansas City with the best opportunity of winning a Super Bowl this season.

"They have a lot of great pieces, but to win it all again is a momentous task. No one's going to put it past them, but we're all excited to show up and watch on opening day and see what version of the 2024 Chiefs, what they can do and the goals they can set for themselves, and whether they can reach them."

The Chiefs captured their second consecutive championship in Super Bowl LVIII by walking off the San Francisco 49ers in overtime. Each of the Chiefs' final three playoff victories were settled by seven points or less.
