"When I chose to come here, I already knew the weapons, and there's only one football to kind of go around", Bell said, per ESPN's Adam Teicher.

"I played at a high level for so long", Bell said, referring to his five seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. I've had two years where it's not been on a high level. Not have too much pressure on me.

With his first touchdown pass of the night, Mahomes became the fastest player in the Super Bowl era to reach 90 touchdown passes, doing so in just 37 games. "I think coming here will give me the opportunity to do that".

A good offense. Yeah, that's something Bell never had in his two seasons with the Jets, who released the disgruntled running back last week.

Mahomes signed a 10-year contract extension with the Chief this year in a deal that his agent says is the most lucrative contract in sports history. It was only the second time they ran more than they passed with Mahomes in the lineup and it was the most times that any Andy Reid-coached team has ever run the ball in a single game. In this offense, so many guys carry the ball so many directions, it's kind of hard to prepare for one guy. I think this offense is a good fit for my skill set.

Bell told reporters on Wednesday that he knows there are plenty of playmakers in Kansas City and "only one football".

Le'Veon Bell walked into the media room at the Chiefs' practice facility, approached the microphone atop the podium and lowered his mask below his nose and mouth.
