But the 50-year-old star, who has deep roots in Kansas City and has long supported the city’s sports teams, was named a spirit leader for the Chiefs ahead the AFC Championship game on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium — and he went all out celebrating the team as they went on to beat the Tennessee Titans and earn their chance to play for the Lombardi Trophy. The Chiefs posted a video to Twitter before kickoff of Rudd and fellow actor, Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet getting hyped for the highly-anticipated matchup, with the winner getting a trip to Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Feb. 2. Rudd, who went to junior high and high school in the area before enrolling at the University of Kansas, was also joined on the sidelines by Chiefs CEO Clark Hunt, who served as a Drum Honoree, according to WDAF.

Rudd and Stonestreet were also seen in the locker room hanging out with players after the game. The AFC Championship started with the Titans gaining a 10 point lead on the hometown Chiefs, but Kansas City — led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes — gained the lead by halftime. After that, the Chiefs continued to increase their lead until winning 35-24.
