The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers kicked off Super Bowl week at Opening Night on Monday, and it didn’t disappoint. From legendary UFC announcer Bruce Buffer introducing both teams to Patrick Mahomes talking about his dad bod, Super Bowl LVIII Opening Night was must-watch TV.
Here are the best moments from the event:
Proper introductions 🗣️
Was there a better way to welcome the Chiefs and 49ers to Las Vegas than letting Buffer introduce them?
Mahomes has jokes 😅
Mahomes’ dad bod stole headlines after the AFC title game, and it once again drew attention Monday. This time, the Chiefs superstar had to answer if he’d rather win a Super Bowl or have six-pack abs.
Humble Purdy 👏
Eight quarterbacks were selected before Brock Purdy in the 2022 NFL Draft, but that doesn’t seem to bother that year’s “Mr. Irrelevant” at all.
Don’t make Coach Reid pick one 🍔
Of course, cheeseburger-related questions were thrown at Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who wisely refused to pick his favorite option between Five Guys and In-N-Out.
At least he tried 😂
Purdy really pulled his best SpongeBob impression.
Kelce feels the pressure 🏆
After Taylor Swift won another Grammy award Sunday, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce sure hopes she isn’t the only one bringing a trophy home this week.
Kittle 🤝 Jeremiah
No other media staffer stole headlines like Jeremiah Fennell, an 11-year-old reporter from Las Vegas. Among several viral interviews conducted by Fennell on Monday, the conversation with 49ers tight end George Kittle might have been his highlight of the night.
Mahomes, Kelce ready for Sunday 😤
49ers fans were loud at Super Bowl Opening Night, and they let Kelce and Mahomes hear it. The Chiefs duo enjoyed the boos, though.
