Behind the Lens: A Look Back at the Top Photos from the 2022 Season – No. 2

Counting down the best photos from the Chiefs’ archives in 2022

A photograph can be powerful. It possesses the ability to capture the raw emotion of a singular moment and preserve an otherwise fleeting snippet of time, telling a story in the process.

In the days leading up to training camp, we're taking a look back at 10 of the best photos from the 2022-23 season along with commentary from Chiefs' Director of Photography Steve Sanders. Unlike in previous years, this isn't a countdown of Sanders' top images, but rather the story of the Chiefs' championship season told through some of his favorite photos.

Here's a look at what we've covered so far: No. 10 | No. 9 | No. 8 | No. 7 | No. 6 | No. 5 |

We'll continue with No. 2:

Steve Sanders' Thoughts:

Q: What was going on in this moment?

Sanders: "This was obviously a huge story surrounding the Super Bowl – it was a showdown between the two Kelce brothers," Sanders said. "Sam's assignment post-game was Travis Kelce, and I told him to stay on Travis no matter what happened, whether that be something with Jason, his mom or Patrick. I just wanted him to follow Travis around and capture whatever happened, and this was one of those moments. I love that the confetti is still falling around them and they're in the middle of this mass of media, but despite all of that, they were able to have this brother-to-brother moment. There's joy and sorrow all in one picture. You have Travis, who is celebrating the victory but also somewhat apologizing to his brother for beating him. Then when you look at Jason, he's happy for his brother, but he's sad that he lost the game. These two share so many things, and to capture this moment was so special."
