Chiefs bonding through pandemic in bid for Super Bowl repeat
During a normal season, many of the players on the Kansas City Chiefs defense would leave the facility after a long day of practice and meetings and head to safety Tyrann Mathieu's house for weekly Thursday night festivities.
Some would be playing cards in the corner. Others watching the NFL game on TV. Plenty of wings would be eaten, especially by those big defensive tackles. They would laugh and joke, discuss the serious and not-so-serious.
“We're just bonding. We're just talking,” Mathieu explained, “about how we grew up, life outside the game. Talking about relationships, motivation. A lot of different conversations take place at Tyrann's place.”
