Our Kansas City Chiefs will be trying to avenge a loss last year in the playoffs to the Cincinnati Bengals.  There also will be something else on the field you may want to take a closer look at.  That would Defensive End George Karlaftis.  This is what he will be doing, and you will want to look at his cleats.

The NFL has a My Cause My Cleats program.  A player can wear cleats to promote a charitable organization and George has chosen Canine Companions.  This is an organization that works to provide free, trained service dogs for those in need in the Kansas City area.

The cleats in the Instagram post above, feature a dog named Julio, who belongs to 1st greater Patrick.  Patrick was spoken to by KSHB 41 and you can read that article HERE.  Canine Companions says the organization is thrilled to partner with Karlaftis.

"Thanks to George and this opportunity, we are able to continue raising awareness about the difference a service dog can make in someone's life," Canine Companions said in a statement. "A special thanks to our many volunteers in the Kansas City area, whom without this partnership would not have been possible."

Once again, you can click HERE for the Canine Companions website and find out the amazing work that they do.  This may be a worthwhile charity to donate to if you have a few extra bucks.

As for this Sunday, I would love to see George get a few sacks on Joe Burrow and continue to make their push for another Super Bowl trophy.  And I am grateful for bringing this great organization to light.
