He has another opportunity to do some damage on Saturday as the Chiefs take the field intent on making their presence felt.
“We’re excited,” Kelce said. “We’re going to go out there, be ourselves and show the world what we can do.”
It won’t be easy, as the Colts’ defense – led by All-Pro rookie linebacker Darius Leonard – has yielded the sixth-fewest yards per game since Week 7, but there’s no denying that there’s simply something special about this edition of the Chiefs.
And this moment – and the opportunity that comes with it – is what they’ve been preparing for all season long.
“I’m excited just to be here and to get the opportunity to go out there and win games like this. When you’re growing up, you want to go and play games like this,” Mahomes said. “When you get older, you want to be a professional athlete and you want to win on the biggest stage. For me, it’s all about going out there, being myself, leaning on my teammates and winning a football game.”
Mahomes and the Chiefs will look to do just that with an opportunity to play in the AFC Championship Game on the line.
