While the Kansas City Chiefs are busy preparing for a crucial AFC Divisional Round matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday, the league revealed some important news for the team regarding their 2023 schedule. The Chiefs have been selected to play one of the international games in Germany.

Head coach Andy Reid was asked about this overseas clash and revealed a hilarious reason to explain his excitement over the event.

In classic Andy Reid style, he simply said, "I look forward to getting a bratwurst."

Playing an international game often provides a headache for NFL franchises with the travel difficulty, time changes and coordinating an international flight for hundreds of players, staff and personnel. But, Reid made light of the tall task on Thursday, however.

It's also a unique opportunity for the league to raise the NFL's brand abroad and for the travel party to check a once-in-a-lifetime experience off their bucket lists. No wonder Aaron Rodgers loves playing there.

On the plus side, at least the Chiefs don't have to travel for Saturday's clash. With a trip to the AFC Championship on the line, Kansas City is considered an 8.5-point home favorite via the NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
