This weekend is wild-card playoff weekend in the NFL, and one of the more intriguing games on the schedule has the high-powered Miami Dolphins visiting the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
One subplot of this game is the return of Dolphins star wide receiver Tyreek Hill to his old stomping grounds at Arrowhead Stadium.
Tight end Travis Kelce says that he expects the crowd to give the “Cheetah” “nothing but love” when he returns on Saturday for that playoff matchup, per Josh Moser.

Once upon a time, the Chiefs were the envy of the rest of the league because of their three-headed monster of Hill, Kelce, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Despite being only a fifth-round draft pick in 2016, Hill quickly turned into a force, and he has made the Pro Bowl in each of his eight seasons in the NFL, as well as four All-Pro First Team selections.
He was a major contributor to Kansas City when they won the Super Bowl championship in the 2019-20 season, and he had nine catches for 105 yards in that Super Bowl win over the San Francisco 49ers.
But the team traded him prior to last season to Miami, presumably for salary reasons.
Hill has seemingly raised his game to an even higher level since then, and this season, he recorded 1,799 receiving yards and 13 receiving touchdowns, both of which led the league, after flirting with the first-ever 2,000 receiving yard season.
Despite the Chiefs’ lack of a consistently reliable wide receiver, they’re favored to win on Saturday over Miami.
