Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid have John Madden, Turducken on the mind this Thanksgiving

The NFL is honoring the legendary John Madden on Thanksgiving by introducing the “John Madden Thanksgiving Celebration,” which is a yearly celebration of his life and legacy. Each of CBS, FOX and NBC are set to create segments dedicated to Madden ahead of each of their Week 12 matchups on Thursday, Nov. 24.

Asked about Madden’s legacy in relation to Thanksgiving, Chiefs HC Andy Reid had one thing on his mind — Turducken.

“Turducken. I mean, you think about Turducken,” Reid said. “I still have my Turducken in the freezer in tribute to him. I’m debating stuffing it. He’s my guy. I appreciate everything he did for me and just a good human being and for the game. Think about what he did for football, for our jobs in here, the thing you guys do for TV, (it was) phenomenal at changing it and then as a coach, Hall of Fame coach.”

Asked a similar question, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes revealed that he’s having a special Thanksgiving dinner in Madden’s honor.

“Yeah, he meant a ton,” Mahomes said. “I got Madden the video game like right when Madden the video game became ‘it,’ which it still is. And so, I played it all growing up. Hearing his voice, it’s ingrained in me now. I watched a documentary this last year and I’m doing the Turducken this year. So I’m going to try it out. I’m not cooking it — I can’t cook — but my chef is already preparing it and getting it ready to go, and I’ll let you know next week how it is.”
