Much like the Kansas City Royals a few years ago, the Kansas City Chiefs have found a way to connect off the field, helping their connection on the field.

Teammates that play together, win together. It’s a statement that is near impossible to refute. Wherever you look, teammates that connect with each other off the field and during the offseason have found success. This is exactly what’s going on with the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Now they have yet to have success because they have yet to play a game, but the ingredients are there. Not only is it special to see as a fan, but it’s quite entertaining as well. There is no shortage of personality or humor with the 2018 Kansas City Chiefs.

The Kansas City Royals had this same type of relationship a few years ago when they were making their deep playoff runs. Players could be seen throughout the city, eating dinner, bowling, and attending local sporting events. The relationships that those guys had off the field carried over to the baseball diamond. They weren’t merely teammates, they had become family.

Look at Patrick Mahomes this offseason. He has constantly asked his teammates to join him when he throws the ball. This not only gives the team familiarity but helps build the bond between teammates.

Mahomes seems to be in the middle of all of it. Ever since he became a member of the Kansas City Chiefs via last years draft, he has taken on the role of a leader. The man he’s replacing, Alex Smith, was a leader on the field, but Mahomes has taken it one step further.

This type of thing has been seen all over Twitter since Mahomes arrived. Friday morning Tyreek Hill tweeted out that he was planning on going to a SportingKC soccer game, Mahomes later tweeted asking if he could go too. As the video above shows, Mahomes did make it to the game.

It’s hard to imagine these guys not connecting on the field, isn’t it? The picture above, of course, is Travis Kelce, Gehrig Dieter, and Mahomes taking in a Kansas City Royals game. All over the region, players can be seen together supporting the surrounding teams, enjoying a movie, or eating dinner.

The popular game Fortnite has become a tool to bring these guys together as well.

The playful banter has become a semi-viral phenomenon on social media, as multiple players have gotten involved. The competitiveness cannot be ignored.

If the above tweet doesn’t make you laugh, you have no sense of humor. The antics of former roommates Dieter and Mahomes have been something to watch in itself. If you aren’t following either, you need to. Dieter might be the best-kept secret on the Kansas City Chiefs.

It’s an encouraging thought to see the team actually like and care for each other for all the world to see.
