Just like any given Sunday at this time of the year the reigning NFL champions Kansas City Chiefs were preparing to host the Chicago Bears on Sunday, September 24th.

This would be the biggest.”

“I think he wanted to get in the end zone just as much as all the Swifties wanted him to,” added Mahomes.
