Jay Glazer's DraftKings Bus Tour: Kansas City Chiefs | DraftKings Playbook

Jay Glazer starts his bus tour in Kansas City with the head coach of the Chiefs, Andy Reid. The Chiefs finished outside of the playoffs last year with a record of 9-7, so they’re coming into this year with much higher expectations. Reid talks about Eric Berry’s comeback, which is an absolutely incredible story. Last year, Berry was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. He missed the entire season, yet he is ready to roll for this year.

I’m not going to do it anymore."
