GLENDALE, Ariz. (WDAF) — Super Bowl LVII is finally here and the team captains for the big game have been selected.
The Kansas City Chiefs captains will be Chris Jones, Tommy Townsend, Jerick McKinnon, Nick Bolton, Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs are going with the same captains they have used throughout their playoff run.
The captains for the Philadelphia Eagles are Jalen Hurts, Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Darius Slay, Jake Elliott and Lane Johnson.
Multiple players will also be wearing a captain’s patch on their jersey, some of them being gold.
A gold captain’s patch represents a player who has been assigned a captain for five-plus seasons. Both Kelce brothers will be assigned the patch. Fletcher Cox will be the other Eagle donning a gold “C.”
Mahomes also holds that honor for the Chiefs.
A captain’s patch without the gold “C” will have a number of gold stars signifying how many seasons that player has been a captain.
