Andy Reid-led Kansas City Chiefs made their way to their second-successive AFC Championship win in front of home fans with a 28-34 win over Buffalo Bills. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce were the two standout offensive stars for the Chiefs that night. But wide receiver Tyreek Hill put in a strong shift. He had 172 receiving yards on 9 receptions.

Tyreek Hill wants to compete at a high level in multiple sport events

Tyreek Hill featured in a recent interview with TMZ ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl LV event in Florida. But the Georgia-born NFL superstar spoke about his Olympic aspirations instead of this weekend’s season finale.

He said, “It is still an option because it’s always been my dream to do multiple sports at the highest level. It would be amazing. I just want to prove a point and also, like, I love competing…Like I’m young so why not use everything that I got while I still have it.”

“Because one day I’m going to be old and I’m not going to be as fast so just use everything I got,” Hill said in a recent interview with TMZ.

Along with Hill, the spotlight will also be on the likes of Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and of course, reigning Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs will be eager to make it back-to-back Super Bowl wins.

They will be favorites heading into tomorrow’s game in Tampa Bay. Unless Mr. Tom Brady decides otherwise.
