Getty Images Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu was named Kansas City's team MVP for the 2019 season.
Following the Kansas City Chiefs’ 40-32 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders last week, one of the team’s most vocal leaders, Tyrann Mathieu, was exactly that.
“I haven’t felt this motivated in a very, very long time and I know my teammates feel the exact same way,” the eighth-year safety said after the game.
Highly respected for his preparation and fiery competitiveness on the field, this season Mathieu has picked up right where he left off in 2019 when he was named the Chiefs’ most valuable player by his teammates. Through the first five games of the year, the two-time All-Pro has posted 23 total tackles, two quarterback hits, two pass breakups and an interception which he returned for a 25-yard pick-six in Week 4 against the New England Patriots.

In November, Mathieu will be voting for the first time. He never believed that government was for people like him. “Growing up in inner cities, you feel like the left-out kid,” he says. “You don’t believe those things work for you.” Now he believes there is power in his vote, and he plans to exercise it.
“There’s so many people that have gone through so much to give us this opportunity, this freedom to vote,” Mathieu says. “I think it’s my responsibility to bring awareness and to let everybody around me know that is their obligation and their responsibility as well. You have that right. You have that voice. So just be confident in it, use that.”
Mathieu, who is heavily involved in the community in Kansas City and hometown of New Orleans, currently heads up the Chiefs’ voter registration program along with QB Patrick Mahomes. In celebration of National Voter Registration Day, the 28-year-old defensive star held a registration event in conjunction with the KC Election Board and Rock the Vote on September 22.

Fact Check: Biden Claims Trump Responsible for 200K Deaths
CLAIM: 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that President Donald Trump is responsible for 220,000 deaths.
VERDICT: FALSE. The coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China, and the nation was not forthcoming about the severity of the outbreak. Moreover, leaked documents show that the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) was aware that China was withholding key information, yet the organization publicly praised the communist country for its purported transparency.
“220,000 Americans dead,” said Biden during the second presidential debate on Thursday evening.”If you hear nothing else I say tonight, hear this — anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as President of the United States of America,” he added.
The former vice president is wrong in his assessment that President Trump is to blame for the Wuhan virus.
The AP report described a massive disconnect between W.H.O.’s public statements and the private frustration of its officials as the Chinese “sat on releasing the genetic map, or genome, of the deadly virus for over a week after multiple government labs had fully decoded it, not sharing details key to designing tests, drugs, and vaccines.”
The report noted that even after a Chinese lab seemingly broke with Communist Party officials and published the genome of the Wuhan coronavirus, “China stalled for at least two more weeks on giving W.H.O. the details it needed, according to recordings of multiple internal meetings held by the UN health agency in January.”
“Although the W.H.O. continued to publicly commend China, the recordings show they were concerned China was not sharing enough information to assess the risk posed by the new virus, costing the world valuable time,” the AP report said.
A leaked intelligence report also revealed that the Chinese regime “went about ‘disappearing’ whistle-blowing doctors, censored news about the outbreak, destroyed samples of the virus in laboratories, and refused to hand over samples to international scientists, delaying the ability to manufacture a cure for the virus,” as Breitbart News detailed.
