For two weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers have been preparing for the biggest game of the year: Super Bowl LVIII. They’ve had media contacts, practices, team meetings, group photos and now that the big day has arrived, they’re hoping all of that will be enough to give them the advantage come kickoff time. sending.
The Chiefs’ final night before the big game included motivational speeches from some of the team’s stars. Head coach Andy Reid had quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce and defensive tackle Chris Jones speak to the team Saturday night at the hotel.
According to Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports, Kelce delivered a powerful and impactful speech that didn’t leave any dry eyes in the house. “It was like a WWE-type speech. It was the best, most emotional team meeting in years,” someone in the room told Wolfson.
Kelce is in his fourth Super Bowl in five years, looking for his third ring. The Chiefs could solidify their dynasty status with a win tonight.
The Chiefs had some struggles during the regular season, more so than last year, especially with dropped passes. The playoffs have been a different story for Kansas City and once again they find themselves one win away from capturing the Lombardi Trophy.
The game will air on CBS and there will be an alternate broadcast on Nickelodeon. Football fans can also stream the match on Paramount+.
