As quarterback Patrick Mahomes revealed to Jimmy Kimmel this week, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid barred any of his players from leaving the locker room to watch the show. "Coach Reid told us, he said, 'If you go out to watch the performance, just keep walking,'" Mahomes told Kimmel, "'because you're not playing the rest of the game.'" Since teams typically use halftime to make adjustments to their strategy, being present was especially important for the Chiefs as they faced down a 24-14 deficit at the end of the second quarter. Fortunately for them, Kansas City had an impressive second half and ended up winning the game with a final score of 38-35.

Last year, Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson stayed on the field to watch the Super Bowl halftime show, even though his team was down 10-13 against the Los Angeles Rams. The Rams won the game 23-20.
