Matt Derrick is living Super Bowl week — again — covering Kansas City for Chiefs Digest this week in Las Vegas. Even though it’s his fourth Super Bowl in five years, he believes this team has gotten to the big game with a different formula. And it has nothing to do with a certain pop star’s presence. (Yes, Matt believes she’ll make kickoff; she’s got a private jet and international assistance, for crying out loud!) He talks about Patrick Mahomes changing his role, about Travis Kelce handling the Swiftie spotlight and so much more on The Jenni Carlson Show. 

Episode highlights:

1:50: How certain is Taylor Swift’s attendance?

4:10: What’s the likelihood Vegas becomes a regular Super Bowl host?

6:00: What has been most impressive about Patrick Mahomes this season?

11:35: How has Travis Kelce dealt with the fame that’s come from dating Swift?
