WATCH: Chiefs DL Mike Pennel’s priceless reaction to Super Bowl LVIII win

Few players made their presence felt in Super Bowl LVIII more than Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Mike Pennel.

He earned a starting spot in Kansas City’s championship matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, and made the most of the opportunity, notching six combined tackles which were good to fie for the fourth-most among all Chiefs in the game.

In a clip posted to Twitter by NFL Films, Pennel can be seen taking in Kansas City’s Super Bowl LVIII win, overcome with emotion while holding confetti in his hands on the sideline.

Super Bowl wins don’t come easy, and Pennel had to fight for his chance to make an impact on Kansas City’s latest championship win.

After spending part of the 2023 season as a free agent, Pennel signed with the Chiefs’ practice squad in late October and gradually worked his way up to the crucial role he played against the 49ers.
