As you saw on Sunday night, not a single member of the Chiefs or Eagles were on the sidelines to watch Rihanna’s halftime show.
For the Chiefs, there was a reason not one of them tried to go out and take in the festivities.
Patrick Mahomes told Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” that his head coach informed all players that if they went out there to watch the show, they wouldn’t play the remainder of the game.
“Coach Reid told us, he said, ‘If you go out to watch the performance, just keep walking,'” Mahomes said, “‘because you’re not playing the rest of the game.'”
