On the plane, the players didn’t seem overwhelmed about heading to Super Bowl LVII.
They appeared to have a raffle, with quarterback Patrick Mahomes overseeing the competition. Rookie running back Isiah Pacheco shared this look on his Instagram Live, which user Lexi Osborne shared on Twitter.

That’s going to be a nice little prize for one of the Chiefs players, and judging from the conversation in the video, it’s something the team does frequently.
The Chiefs landed safely in Arizona, and ESPN’s Adam Teicher tweeted this photo.
