Chiefs Make Their Return to the White House as Super Bowl Champions: Best Moments From Travis Kelce, Patrick Mahomes and Co.

    The Kansas City Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in a row and third in five years, which resulted in yet another White House trip for the defending champs.

    The Kansas City Chiefs kept themselves at the top of the NFL in 2023, winning the Super Bowl for the second consecutive season. With that, it means they returned once again to the White House, a tradition for every team that wins the big game.

    With the Chiefs back in DC, there’s always something fun going on. Here’s a recap of everything Chiefs in the White House.

    Recapping the Chiefs’ Visit to the White House

    With the Chiefs back for the third time in Patrick Mahomes’ short career, they didn’t hide that they’re getting used to this. Prior to President Joe Biden welcoming the team, multiple players made sure to drop by the briefing room.

    “My fellow Americans … It’s nice to see you again,” said tight end Travis Kelce after being introduced by the president. “I’m not gonna lie, President Biden, they told me if I came up here, I was going to get tased.”

    Kelce was referencing last year when he attempted to grab the mic and say something, but was pulled away by Patrick Mahomes.

    “I’m incredibly proud of our players and coaches,” said owner Clark Hunt in his speech. “We’ve greatly enjoyed our time here today, and we look forward to the challenge of making this an annual trip.”

    Following Hunt’s speech, head coach Andy Reid and Hunt then gave Biden a Chiefs helmet as a gift, which he immediately put on to wear before the conclusion of the event. He did, however, try to put it on while wearing sunglasses at first before taking them off.

    Revisiting the Chiefs’ Super Bowl Victory

    The road to the Lombardi Trophy was a bumpy one for the Chiefs in 2023. From the ebbs and flows of a season to an overtime victory in the big game, this past season tested their resolve unlike any before.

    For much of the Super Bowl action, it looked as if the San Francisco 49ers were the better team. However, they didn’t have the best QB in the NFL on their sideline, and when it came to show why he gets that consideration, Mahomes shined the brightest.

    After a defensive struggle for much of the first half, the Chiefs were down 10-3 at halftime with little offensive momentum. Following halftime adjustments, the third quarter seemed to change all of that.

    The Chiefs entered the fourth quarter winning 13-10 after trailing for the entire first half.

    From there, it once again became a battle of defenses with neither team able to put the other away. Following a fourth quarter that ended in a 19-19 tie, the Super Bowl was going to be decided in overtime for the second time in league history, and the first time under the new overtime rules.

    In the extra frame, the Chiefs again found themselves down and with their backs against the wall following a 49ers field goal to take the lead. However, Mahomes let his greatness shine through from there and orchestrated an excellent touchdown drive that ended with WR Mecole Hardman catching a wide-open pass and walking into the right corner of the end zone.

    Mahomes cemented his legacy, put himself in the conversation of the NFL’s best, and he left fans and pundits around the league wondering just how many titles he could end up winning when his career is all said and done.
