"We've fought for the right to party again." - Justin Reid, Safety

"How 'bout the Chiefs?" - Andy Reid, Head Coach

"It's a blessing. I mean, I don't even know how to feel right now. All I can do is thank God and appreciate my supporting cast, my family, all my teammates, everybody that helped me get here because I wouldn't be here without them. And we're not done yet." - Patrick Mahomes, Quarterback

"I think we've got the best secondary in the NFL. I think we've got the best corner in the NFL. And when you've got a defense that's playing like that, and you've got a quarterback who makes plays like he does, it's a recipe for success. I think we can beat any team in this league when we play like that. We can definitely beat any team when we play like that in the Super Bowl, too." - L'Jarius Sneed, Cornerback

"It was a team effort, but Mahomes and Kelce made the plays they had to make to win the game. That's what good teams do: Whenever the opportunity presents itself, they make the big play." - Andy Reid, Head Coach

"I think you have to give our defense a lot of credit. The way they played all day, the turnovers, the sacks, the pressure, and then the last drive, you know, at the end of the game. So, I think our defense really stepped up and stopped them and made the plays they had to make." - Brett Veach, General Manager

"It's unbelievable. We're going back to the Super Bowl, man. This team right here fought through a lot of adversity, fought through a lot of things that built the character of this team. We have a lot of guys that step up, and we're excited to go to the Super Bowl." - Isiah Pacheco, Running Back
