You didn’t hear them talk about it after the game, but players on the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs were complaining about the field conditions of Super Bowl 57 at State Farm Stadium throughout the contest.
The conditions of the Arizona Cardinals’ home venue were far from ideal, which is inexcusable given a) it’s the Super Bowl and b) State Farm Stadium is an indoor venue that’s protected from rain and snow.
As you can see in the clip below from NFL Mic’d Up (shared by Dov Kleiman), players were constantly voicing their displeasure with the State Farm Stadium conditions. Quite frankly, it’s hard to blame them.
State Farm Stadium only opened in 2006, so it’s not as if the venue is outdated or anything. But unfortunately, porous field conditions are a common complaint in the NFL. FedExField (home of the Washington Commanders), and the turf at MetLife Stadium (home of the New York Giants and New York Jets) have sparked plenty of complaints over the years.
The Chiefs went on to win a thrilling back-and-forth contest by a final score of 38-35, winning on a late field goal by kicker Harrison Butker. Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP after tossing three touchdowns.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
