The Chiefs quarterback has said as much, telling reporters that he told his teammates the trip is strictly professional, promising to bring them all back to Las Vegas should they win the Big Game.
If you didn’t believe Mahomes was treating his stay at Sin City as purely business, look no further than the pregame outfit he donned walking into Allegiant Stadium on Sunday.
The Chiefs signal-caller was decked out in a black suit, looking the part of a serious businessman.

Mahomes, who has won a pair of Super Bowl titles and MVPs in his career, already understands how difficult it is to get to this point, especially given the Chiefs’ uncharacteristic struggles during the 2023 regular season.
Plus, there is a lot riding on Super Bowl LVIII for Mahomes’s individual legacy, as he pursues Tom Brady’s record of seven Super Bowl titles.
It’s no wonder the Chiefs QB showed up in business attire.
The Chiefs and 49ers are scheduled to kick off Super Bowl LVIII at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
