The NFL released the final episode of Mic’d Up, it’s the Super Bowl edition. It included a number of interesting highlights but the most notable one is the players from both sides couldn’t stop complaining about the poor condition of the field.
Players from both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles spend most of the night complaining on the sidelines about just how bad the condition was of the playing surface.

Players slipped, fall, and changed their cleats throughout the game.
Mic’d up players such as Travis Kelce, Frank Clark, Isiah Pacheco and Brandon Graham can be heard talking to their teammates and coaches about it.
Travis Kelce Warns His Teammates
Kanas City’s star tight end told his teammates: “Hey, the paint’s slippery! Be under control in the paint!”
Kelce knew the painted area of the field is unreliable and wanted the Chiefs players to be fully aware and stay in control while running so they wouldn’t slip.

Overall, it seemed that Eagles players had harder time not to slip around the Super Bowl field than the Chiefs players.
Kansas City ultimately won 38-35.
