MIAMI, Fla. — Bringing their Kansas City pride to Miami, Chiefs players shared on a worldwide stage what it would mean to bring a Super Bowl win back to the Midwest.

At a media night in Marlins Park, Mahomes said the team will be “grinding” all week in preparation for the big game.

“I enjoy every single day that I get to come to the facility and be with these guys,” Mahomes said. “We understand this moment, we understand that it’s a hard thing to get to, but we're going to enjoy it the whole time and we're going to keep playing football how we always play. Letting our personalities show and have fun.”

And while he said they will “feel the magnitude” of the game, the key is in teammates trusting each other.

“This was our goal ever since training camp, ever since last year, ever since I've been here, to be in this game and to be able to play for a Super Bowl championship. It's amazing with the support that Kansas City shows every single year,” Mahomes said. “Ups and downs whatever it is, to be able to bring the fans here because they are here and play in this game is amazing.”

Travis Kelce said the Super Bowl is something he has been waiting for.

“I haven't really dreamed of this exact moment with all of these cameras and everything but I know it is a part of the gig,” Kelce said. “And you know what? I've been waiting for seven years to be able to get a piece of this pie here at the Super Bowl.”

And he knows the city has been waiting as well.

“It’s been 50 years for the city,” Kelce said. “It’s been seven for me. The seven I had was long enough. I can only imagine what this would mean for the city when we bring it back.”

Clark said the Chiefs deserve to be vying for that Super Bowl win.

“We worked hard because when we were down in knocked out nobody believed in us, nobody trusted us,” Clark said. “They all turned their backs but we held in there, we stayed fast.”

He also tackled how he plans to win on Sunday:

Hill said his faith in his teammates is steadfast.

“I believe in each and every one of my teammates that they are going to go out on the field and dominate their match up, wholeheartedly I believe that,” Hill said.
