Kansas City Chiefs man Donovan Smith claimed his team were forced to shower with cold water after their dramatic victory against Buffalo Bills.
After the team returned to the locker room after a breathtaking 27-24 win, Smith tweeted: ‘Damn caught a L and they shut our hot water off… smh its all good we got that Dub today #ChiefsKingdom’.
It was a small price to pay for the Chiefs after a gripping victory over the Bills that takes them one win from the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs shared pictures of Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes leading the celebrations in the locker room after a magnificent victory.
Coach Andy Reid was snapped given a victory speech to the team and, perhaps ironically, looked to be rubbing his hands together for warmth while doing so.

The Chiefs were cooking on the field but they outfought the Bills in bitterly cold Buffalo temperatures. Snow had hit the city in the days leading up to the game and dropped to a bitter 19 degrees on the night itself.
The team also put out a video of Kelce, who scored two touchdowns on the night, working his way around the locker room to congratulate his teammates.
‘F***ing love you brother,’ Mahomes can be heard telling a pumped-up Kelce.
But one player who missed some of the party was L’Jarius Sneed – who was frustrated at being called for a drugs test after the game.
‘I’m tired of getting drug tested,’ he wrote on X. To add to the frustration, it was Sneed’s birthday on Sunday as well, the cornerback turning 27 on a day he will never forget.
Chiefs quarterback Mahomes was euphoric after his team’s brilliant road win but was quick to pay tribute to the team standing between the Chiefs and the Super Bowl – the Baltimore Ravens.
Speaking to the media in the immediate aftermath on Sunday night, Mahomes said: ‘There´s no weakness there. It´s going to take our best effort.
‘Defense, offense, special teams, they do it all. It´s always a great challenge and that stadium´s going to be rocking, so we´re excited for the challenge.’
