Chiefs DE Frank Clark’s brash statement sets stage for Super Bowl battle vs. Tom Brady, Buccaneers
Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark emerged as an integral piece in the team’s victory over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday. After successfully limiting Josh Allen, Clark and company will be faced with another tough assignment in Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
When asked if he has a message for the three-time NFL MVP heading to their matchup in a couple of weeks, Clark confidently brushed things off with a straightforward answer.
“Nah,” he concluded, his shoulders relaxing as he exhaled beneath a fur coat draped atop a Chiefs championship T-shirt. “I don’t got nothing to say to him. I’ll see his ass on Sunday in the Super Bowl.”
Clark led the Chiefs’ defensive unit against the Bills and went after Josh Allen under center. He dealt the opposing quarterback two sacks, which helped hinder the Bills’ offense from gaining any momentum in the second half of the game. Fellow pass rusher Tanoh Kpassagnon also helped Clark and tallied a sack of his own, while cornerback L’Jarius Sneed generated a sack for the Chiefs as well.
Allen eventually ended up with 287 yards on 28-of-48 passing along with two touchdowns, but he racked up some of his production in garbage time. In the end, the stifling presence of the Chiefs’ defensive unit was enough to put the clamps on the Bills’ offensive players and lift Kansas City to a 38-24 victory.
Defeating Tom Brady and his stacked Buccaneers team certainly won’t come easy for the Chiefs, but Frank Clark is more than determined to get the job done. The two teams will clash for the Super Bowl LV title on Feb. 7 in Tampa Bay, Florida.
