The St. Louis Blues are leaving no doubt who they're supporting in Super Bowl LIV.

Goalie Jordan Binnington sported the jersey of Kansa City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the red carpet, and center Ryan O'Reilly donned a red Chiefs helmet during warmups at the 2020 NHL All-Star Skills presented by New Amsterdam Vodka.

The Chiefs, the only remaining pro football team in Missouri, will play the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL championship game in Miami on Feb. 2.

Binnington rolled up to the event rocking the red jersey under his suit jacket. The Chiefs took notice and appreciated his wardrobe choice.

O'Reilly got the idea from Blues equipment Andrew Dvorak, who has worked for the Chiefs during the summer.

"Figured I'd throw it on and give some support," O'Reilly said.

O'Reilly also said he'd be picking the Chiefs to take home their first NFL championship since 1970.

"That's who I'd take," he said. senior writer Dan Rosen contributed to this report.
