After earning his second trip to the Super Bowl as a head coach, Andy Reid enjoyed a relatively low key celebration following the Chiefs' 37-20 win over the Titans in the AFC Championship game. Reid, speaking to reporters less than 24 hours after Kansas City erased a 10-point deficit, was asked how he celebrated the historic win. That's when he delivered the most Andy Reid-like answer we could've expected.
"I had a cheeseburger and went to bed," said Reid, whose comment immediately went viral on social media.
Reid's celebration, however, didn't last long. Hours after his team punched its first Super Bowl ticket in 50 years, Reid said that the Chiefs were back in the office on Monday preparing for their next opponent -- the 49ers. San Francisco jumped out to a 27-0 halftime lead before defeating the Packers in the NFC title game, 37-20.
"I know they're a good, solid football team," Reid said when asked to give his initial thoughts on the 49ers, who clinched their first Super Bowl berth since 2012. "They play hard and aggressive. You saw that last night playing against a good Green Bay team. They do a variety of things on both sides of the ball. They can run it, they can pass it on the offensive side. On defense, they've got a variety of things that they throw at you. Solid on special teams, so, it's all and all a good football team. It's well coached. Very well coached."
Specifically, Reid was asked about San Francisco running back Raheem Mostert, who rushed for a franchise record 220 yards and four touchdowns in the 49ers' win over the Packers.
