Final update: Well, Smith-Schuster certainly was involved in the final quarter of the game. He finishes with seven receptions on nine targets for 53 yards. Smith-Schuster will now hit free agency with a Super Bowl win under his belt.
Third quarter update: Smith-Schuster heads into the final quarter with two receptions for 13 yards. He is likely going to need to see more involvement for the Chiefs to pull off the comeback in the final frame.
Second quarter update: Smith-Schuster saw some action in the second quarter. He heads into halftime with three targets but only one reception for five yards. The Chiefs are down 10 at the halfway mark, so they could end up coming out of the locker room passing more.
First quarter update: Smith-Schuster is playing in his first career Super Bowl. Unfortunately for him, he is off to a slow start. He didn’t register a target in the opening quarter and even had a play where he kind of looked lost about what was happening. In any case, Smith-Schuster will look to up his involvement as the game continues.
Super Bowl 57 is gearing up to kick off on Sunday from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The Kansas City Chiefs will face the Philadelphia Eagles starting at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fox. Wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster signed a one-year prove-it deal with the Chiefs and will be playing in the first Super Bowl of his career.
Smith-Schuster played in 16 games in the regular season. He brought in 78 receptions on 101 targets for 933 yards and three touchdowns. While none of these stats are career highs for him, they likely are enough to warrant him a solid contract in free agency. Smith-Schuster could end up back in Kansas City, but with the team’s depth at the position, he could be wearing his third different uniform in as many years.
