The Kansas City Chiefs were handed a crushing defeat for the second consecutive week, falling in the final minutes to the Buffalo Bills with more controversy regarding the officiating. The shocking, offensive offside penalty on receiver Kadarius Toney before an incredible lateral from Travis Kelce cost the team a go-ahead touchdown and a memorable victory at Arrowhead Stadium.
Patrick Mahomes was visibly emotional and upset with the referees as the game ended. He didn’t mince words about the controversial penalty during the Chiefs’ post-game press conference.
“It’s the call, and just in that moment, I mean, it’s not even for me; I know how much everybody puts into this game,” Mahomes explained. “For it to happen, for a flag to change the outcome of the game. And that moment, I mean, I’ve played seven years and never had had offensive offsides called. [You learn] that [in] elementary school. We talked about, pointing to the ref all that different type of stuff, and if it doesn’t get called me, if it does, they warn you.
