The Kansas City Chiefs have revealed their secret weapon to improving team chemistry, and it’s one that took a jab at Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray.

Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster said playing Call of Duty: Warzone with Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Marquez Valdes-Scantling is what made the difference in their chemistry on Sunday.

Kansas City needed something to change after losing 24-20 to the Buffalo Bills, just their second loss of the season, one week prior. They went on to destroy the San Francisco 49ers by the final score of 44-23. The Chiefs have been a solid team for years, making the playoffs every season since 2015 and winning a Super Bowl within that span.

It’s no surprise that they pulled off such a big win, but the shade thrown at Murray is quite hilarious.

Murray made it well known during the offseason that he loves video games. Back in July, the Associated Press revealed that his contract includes an “independent study” clause that says “the quarterback must study at least four hours each week during the season for Arizona’s upcoming game and that he can’t be distracted by ‘watching television, playing video games or browsing the internet.’”

While there’s no guarantee that clause was put in due to his love for video games…it’s easy to infer it.

His video game usage and completion percentage was even analyzed in August, with statistics revealing that his performance is worse when he plays Call of Duty on Double XP weekends.

Murray’s performance may get worse from spending so much time on what he loves outside of football. It’s humorous from Kansas City’s point of view, as Smith-Schuster stated the game had the exact opposite on his teammates.
