The Kansas City Chiefs, as defending Super Bowl champions, are heading to Las Vegas for a business trip rather than the usual gambling and partying that the city is known for. Their focus is solely on winning their third Lombardi Trophy in the Patrick Mahomes era.
On Super Bowl Opening Night, Mahomes emphasized the importance of their travel to Las Vegas being all about taking home the Super Bowl trophy, rather than spending time on the famous Las Vegas Strip. He has asked his teammates to avoid the nightlife and partying, making a promise to bring everyone back to Vegas to celebrate if they win.
Mahomes has a generous NFL contract and, as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, he is compensated well. In September, he and the Chiefs agreed to restructure his contract to pay him $210.6 million between the 2023 and 2026 seasons. Overall, Mahomes has a 10-year contract with the team worth up to $503 million.
The Chiefs will be facing off against the San Francisco 49ers at Allegiant Stadium on Feb. 11 at 6:30 p.m. ET. The game will be broadcasted on CBS, with a family-friendly stream on Nickelodeon and can also be streamed on Paramount+.
