Social Recap: A Look at the Top Tweets from 2017

Posted Feb 14, 2018

Here’s a collection of some of the most popular Twitter posts from last season

The Kansas City Chiefs won a second-straight AFC West title in 2017, with our social channels documenting the action every step along the way.

Here’s a look at some of the top Twitter posts from the 2017 season.

1. Don’t be shocked. We aren’t!

The Chiefs spoiled the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl celebration to kick off the 2017 season, and while the national pundits may have been surprised, Chiefs Kingdom was not.

2. #FootballIsFamily … (No, really, they are brothers)

It was all smiles for tight end Travis Kelce following the Chiefs’ victory over the Philadelphia Eagles and his older brother, Eagles’ center Jason Kelce, in Week 2. The two swapped jerseys following the game, with the younger Kelce soaking in the moment.  

3. Wish Eric Berry a happy birthday!

If Kansas City could collectively wish one individual a happy birthday, safety Eric Berry would likely be the recipient.

4. A Merry Chiefsmas to all! - Andy Reid/Santa

The Chiefs won the division crown on Christmas Eve, prompting Head Coach Andy Reid to add a little flare to the normal postgame celebration in the locker room.

5. How bout those back-to-back AFC West Division Champion CHIEEEEEFS!

That win on Christmas Eve secured a second-straight division title for Kansas City, marking the first such occurrence in franchise history.  

6. Kareem Hunt is your 2017 NFL rushing champion

Hunt carried the ball just once in Week 17 against the Broncos, but it was enough to secure the 2017 rushing title. Hunt is just the sixth rookie in the Super Bowl Era to lead the NFL in rushing, and only the second to be drafted outside of the first round.

7. W – Check!

The Chiefs were tasked with opening the season on the road against the reigning Super Bowl Champions, but it was the Chiefs celebrating when the clock hit zero.

8. THIS IS NOT GETTING OLD           

In perhaps the most creative touchdown celebration of the season, Kelce beat out wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson in an impromptu “potato sack race” following a score in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys.

9. Banner nights

It was supposed to be New England’s night to raise a banner in Week 1, but several Chiefs put together “banner nights” of their own.

10. Congrats, Kareem!

Hunt took the league by storm through his first month as a rookie, tallying 538 yards of offense along with six touchdowns.
