This will be his first game at Arrowhead Stadium since joining the Miami Dolphins in 2022. Hill’s return is anticipated to be met with boos, fueled by his active social media comments against the team since the trade.

However, the Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce expects the Kansas City crowd to show Tyreek Hill love, emphasizing Hill’s positive off-field contributions to the community.

“I expect KC to give him nothing but love. He’ll forever be loved in this city because of who he was off the field in this community,” the TE said.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes highlighted the competitive nature on the field despite friendships off the field, expressing mutual respect with Tyreek Hill.

“We’re competitors. You’ve seen me — I have that fire and he’s the same way That’s what makes him so great. And we’re still friends in the offseason and all that, but when you’re on the field, you’re competing to win. That’s just how it is.”

While the Chiefs players still love and respect Tyreek Hill, the focus will be on defeating him. This game is crucial for both the Dolphins and the Chiefs. The Dolphins are in the postseason for consecutive years for the first time since 2001 and the Chiefs are set to play their 15th straight home playoff game, dating back to January 15, 2017.
