The Kansas City Chiefs players wanted to turn into fans during halftime at the Super Bowl.
That is because Rihanna was performing the halftime show.
But, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid shot any chance of that happening down.
He told his players that if they wanted to sneak out and watch Rihanna at halftime, they should just keep walking.

Two Chiefs players have now confirmed this story, and it helped loosen his players up at halftime.
Kansas City entered the locker room trailing 24-14, and they looked to be in serious trouble.
History was not on their side as only one team in Super Bowl history overcame a 10+ point halftime deficit to win.
Yet, Reid and the Chiefs coaching staff put on a clinic in the second half.
The KC offense had four possessions after halftime and they scored on all four of them.
Also, their defense gave up 24 first-half points but responded by giving up only 11 in the second half, fueling the comeback.
You have to look at the Super Bowl experience being a factor for the Chiefs in this win.
This was the Chiefs’ third appearance in the Super Bowl in the last four years.
They knew how long Super Bowl halftime shows are, and they used that to their advantage.
KC came out of halftime much more prepared and executed everything they wanted to on offense.
This game will go down as a Super Bowl classic, and both teams deserve credit for that.
But, the Chiefs once again prevailed in the big game and are now looking to repeat in 2023.NEXT: Chiefs Fans Showed Up In A Big Way On Wednesday
