CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson likens 2020s-era Chiefs to Peyton’s Broncos

Arrowhead Stadium should be rocking on Sunday when the Kansas City Chiefs take the field in front of a full-capacity crowd for the first time since the 2019 AFC title game. The Chiefs and Cleveland Browns kick off at 3:25 p.m. Arrowhead Time.

If you can’t make it out to the game, you will definitely be watching on CBS (KCTV5) as sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson works with play-by-play host Jim Nantz and analyst (and former NFL quarterback) Tony Romo.

Wolfson began working on the Nantz team with Phil Simms in 2014, covering all of the league’s teams for CBS. Wolfson thus knows a great team when she sees one — and she confirmed that on this week’s edition of the Arrowhead Pride Interview Series.

“I have high expectations, like I’ve had the last few years,” said Wolfson of the Chiefs. “I’m not just saying it — I absolutely love this team. I’ve been around them for a long time. It kind of reminds me of all the Broncos teams with Peyton (Manning) that I covered. I covered him for a long time, I saw the success they had there. I loved going there, I loved being a part of it and I loved watching them.

“Every time I covered them, I felt like they were going to win. I kind of feel the same way with the Chiefs. It’s just because they’re great to work with, they have such talent, they bring the energy to the stadium. There are so many things.”

It’s more than just the football on the field, according to Wolfson; it extends to how the Chiefs players interact with one another.

“When you’re going to all these different teams and seeing all these different sites and players and stadiums, that’s... your viewpoint. To be honest, everyone always asks me, ‘Are they going to win this? Are they going to have success?’ I actually look at the team. I take a step back, I’m on the sideline. I look at the camaraderie. I look at how they are a team on the offense and defensive side of the ball and how they work together and the personalities they have. That goes into success just as much as the talent on the field. And I believe that this Chiefs team has it, they’ve had it, they’ve been successful and I think they’re going to be successful again this season.”

On the full podcast, Wolfson discusses this Chiefs-Browns matchup in detail, including what she gathered from meeting with the Chiefs at the CBS production meeting.
