The duo signed the jerseys before handing them to one another and then posing for pictures on Sunday afternoon.
Both teams entered the game on 6-2, with the Dolphins boasting the NFL’s best offense, which averaged 33.9 points per game. The Chiefs were ranked No 4 with 23.4.
But Miami had not yet beaten a team with a winning record, having suffered defeats against the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles. For a supposed AFC powerhouse, that worrying trend continued in Frankfurt.
Chiefs safety Bryan Cook took a fumble return 59 yards for what turned out to be an important touchdown in deciding the close result.

Mahomes threw two touchdown passes and the Chiefs (7-2) did just enough to slow the NFL’s top-ranked offense in the first-ever regular season game in Frankfurt, Germany, but the defending Super Bowl champions nearly blew a big lead.
The quarterback connected on first-half scoring passes to Rashee Rice and Jerick McKinnon as Miami (6-3) kept getting stuck in third-and-long situations. The Dolphins also fell to 0-3 on the season against teams with winning records.
Mahomes finished 20 of 30 for a season-low 185 yards in his European debut, but the Chiefs´ offense struggled in the second half.
Tight end Travis Kelce had just three catches for 14 yards, which was just enough to become the franchise’s career leader in receiving yards.
‘Obviously, penalties and then me not connecting on guys deep down the field hurt us, but luckily for us our defense is playing their tail off and we got the win,’ Mahomes said.
Griezmann and Atletico on the other hand are currently fourth place in La Liga with 25 points through their 11 games played.
The 32-year-old striker is currently tied with fellow forward Alvaro Morata with seven goals for the team lead.
