It was just more than one year ago that Andy Reid made headlines when he revealed how he celebrated the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl-clinching 35-24 win over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship Game.

“I had a cheeseburger and went to bed," Reid infamously said.
Two weeks later, the Kansas City head coach doubled down on his tradition, telling the NFL Network that he was going to celebrate with "the biggest cheeseburger you've ever seen," following the Chiefs' 31-20 victory vs. the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54 in Miami, Florida.
You know what they say? If ain't broke, don't fix it.
As the Chiefs look to defend their NFL championship at Super Bowl 55 in Tampa Bay, Florida, this week, Reid has plenty on his plate. But when it comes to his postgame meal on Sunday, the 62-year-old Reid has already decided he will continue his championship cheeseburger tradition should Kansas City defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium.
"There is," Reid answered during a media availability on Monday when asked if there's another cheeseburger waiting for him in the event of a Chiefs Super Bowl victory. "Yes, I'm going to eat a double cheeseburger if that happens."
Earning that celebratory meal will be easier said than done for Reid, who's preparing to face a Tampa Bay team that's won seven straight games, with its last loss coming in a 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Nov. 29. Reid, who is preparing to coach in his third Super Bowl, is well aware of the challenge ahead, especially with the Buccaneers being the first team in Super Bowl history to play in its own home stadium.
"It’s unique," Reid said. "I would tell you that it’s an honor to have the opportunity to play Tampa Bay in what is obviously a historic game from the standpoint that there’s never been a home team that’s played at their own facility. I think that’s a unique situation.
"We look forward to the challenge of playing them. Compared to other Super Bowls, I have a hard time comparing one to the other, they’re all so different. This one surely is unique because of the COVID-19 situation that we’ve been in."
