A celebration is coming to Kansas City for the Champion Chiefs.
Super Bowl 57 in Arizona last (Sunday) night saw the Chiefs overtake the Eagles and win 38 – 35.
Patrick Mahomes was 21 of 27 for 182 yards and 3 touchdowns and rushed for 44 yards in the game and capped off the win with MVP honors.
Naysayers at the beginning of the season didn’t even have the Chiefs picked to win the AFC West, let alone the Super Bowl, claiming it was a rebuilding year with the loss of Tyreek Hill.
Late in the first half Mahomes seemed to re-injure the high ankle sprain suffered in the divisional round against Jacksonville but he stayed in the game for the duration.
After the game, quarterback Chad Henne announced that Sunday’s game would be his last, taking to Instagram to say, “Calling it a career. Capping it off with Bud Light and another ring.”
Henne has been with the Chiefs since 2018 after spending time with Miami and Jacksonville since his drafting in 2008.
A parade honoring the Chiefs through downtown Kansas City is set for Wednesday starting at Noon and ending at Union Station around 1:45 where there will be a rally.
The exact route of the parade will be released later today (Monday).

They beat #6 Tennessee 86 – 85 and were the second team to beat the Vols last week.
