This year's Super Bowl featured a highly anticipated matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, Tampa's weapons proved too much to handle for KC's defense, and the Chiefs' offense never found its groove.

Safety Tyrann Mathieu, who jawed with Tom Brady during the game, didn't have the best of showings. And he's handling the loss in a heartbreaking way.

Mathieu is approaching borderline torture levels with his decision to rewatch the Super Bowl more than once. It can't be easy for the three-time All-Pro to see the defense unravel before his eyes.

The hurt that Mathieu is feeling in the aftermath should provide plenty of motivation to put in the work this offseason and help his team get better on that side of the ball.

Kansas City has been busy in free agency reshaping its offensive line and filling out its defensive depth after that Super Bowl loss. Headlined by the trio of Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, there's little reason to expect the Chiefs won't be contenders once again next season.

In fact, they have the best odds in the league to win the Super Bowl in 2022 at +500 on FanDuel Sportsbook. Mathieu will hope to play a big role in KC securing their second championship in three years.
