MIAMI — Dolphins players Eric Rowe and Preston Williams spent a morning during Super Bowl week giving back and playing with hundreds of local kids.

They may not be playing in the Super Bowl, but Chiefs Kingdom certainly remembers their last game when they beat the New England Patriots.

“I thought it was pretty funny,” Rowe said of the sudden rush of Chiefs fans joyfully thanking the Miami team for the major upset against New England.

Rowe, a former Patriot, scored a touchdown as part of the big win.

“It kind of proved to ourselves that we are a good team,” he said.

When the Dolphins won, Arrowhead went wild.

“I know they had our game on the ticker when you all saw that we beat the Patriots,” Williams said. “A real good moment.”

Their win gave the Chiefs a number two seed and a bye week in the playoffs, all on the road to Miami.

That’s when #FinsUp tweets from Chiefs fans started flying.

“I think it’s pretty cool, just knowing you have another team supporting another team,” Rowe said.

Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas even sent some “Thank you” barbecue to Miami’s mayor.

Both Rowe and Williams wished good luck to an impressive Kansas City team in the Super Bowl.

“Gonna be a good game to watch,” Williams said. “Excited to see what Kansas City is gonna do.”
