Kansas City Chiefs stars Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce were the last to leave Pro Bowl practice to sign autographs for fans.
The Kansas City Chiefs are not part of the Super Bowl this season after two trips in a row. They missed out on Super Bowl LVI after losing 27-24 to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill were among the players who attended the Pro Bowl festivities.
After Thursday's AFC practice session, Mahomes and Kelce were the last players to leave as they signed autographs for fans in attendance.
Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce sign autographs after Pro Bowl practice
This is the fourth time Mahomes has been called to the Pro Bowl while Kelce is a seven-time Pro Bowler.
In the AFC Conference Championship Game, it looked like the Chiefs would head to the Super Bowl for the third straight year. After all, they led 21:3. But the second half was all Bengals, thanks in part to the defense's ability to pressure Mahomes.
Although the Chiefs forced overtime and won the coin toss to gain possession first, they quickly returned the ball to the Bengals. In the fourth game, Mahomes aimed at Hill Downfield, but the pass was intercepted by safety Vonn Bell. Joe Burrow and Joe Mixon helped put Evan McPherson in a great position to score the game-winning field goal.
The season didn't end the way the Chiefs wanted, but they seem to be having fun in Las Vegas at the Pro Bowl.
The Pro Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, February 6 at 3:00 p.m. ET, live from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
