After each and every NFL game, head coaches from opposing teams run to the center of the field to shake hands.
Andy Reid took it up a notch last season.
At the end of the 2019 regular season, the Miami Dolphins took down the New England Patriots to pull off a surprising win. It forced the Pats to play on wildcard weekend and gave the Chiefs home-field advantage.
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid sent Kansas City barbecue to Miami coach Brian Flores.
“So, I thought I’d just send him a little thought from Kansas City, you know,” Reid said, via Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “Kansas City is known for its barbecue, so no better present to get from the good Kansas City barbecue here.”
Flores confirmed the story, and made clear that the gift did not go to waste.
“It was good barbecue — it went fast,” Flores said Thursday. “Had my brothers over, not sure if we had some other people over. We enjoyed it. So, I was very thankful to Andy for that. And yeah, it went very quickly. K.C. barbecue is very good.”
Their teams will meet this week.
