The Kansas City Chiefs are heading to Las Vegas for a business trip, not the typical gambling and partying that the city is known for. As the defending Super Bowl champions, this will be their fourth Super Bowl in five years, and they are aiming for a third Lombardi Trophy in the Patrick Mahomes era. Their focus is solely on the big game, and they will not participate in the usual Vegas activities.
On the opening night of the Super Bowl, Mahomes emphasized the importance of their trip to Las Vegas to bring home the Super Bowl trophy, rather than spending time on the famous Las Vegas Strip. He asked his teammates to avoid nightlife and partying, promising to bring everyone back to Vegas to celebrate if they won.
Mahomes has a pretty generous NFL contract and, as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, is well compensated. In fact, in September he and the Chiefs agreed to restructure his contract to pay him $210.6 million between the 2023 and 2026 seasons. In all, Mahomes has a 10-year deal with the team worth up to $503 million.
The Chiefs will face off against their NFC West rivals, The San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium on February 11th at 6:30pm ET. The game will air on CBS with a family stream on Nickelodeon and may also be streamed on Paramount+
