In a Sunday night football thriller, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had a fit of rage on the sidelines during Sunday night’s game where the Bills narrowly defeated the Chiefs in an intense ending that would have left any football fan sitting on the edge of their seat.
After a tough week for Sean McDermott and the Buffalo Bills, the possibility of one last setback hung in the balance when the Kansas City Chiefs attempted a creative touchdown pass. With just over a minute left in the game, fans held their breath as referees made the call that changed the game.
When the yellow flag was spotted on the field, McDermott was relieved; however, Mahomes was enraged.
Before the flag was thrown, Mahomes threw a quick pass to Travis Kelce. Kelce then ran up the field and tossed the ball backward to Kadarius Toney, who ran in for a touchdown.
Chiefs fans were ecstatic until the review of the play when Toney’s touchdown was deemed offside, nullifying the pass. After reviewing the video, referees ruled that Toney had lined up in the neutral zone at the start of the play and caused the violation.
Following the ruling, Mahomes walked back to the sidelines while yelling at officials. He then threw his helmet to the ground. When the touchdown was removed from the scoreboard, Mahomes had to be restrained by both his coaches and his teammates.

Cameras caught Mahomes on the sidelines saying, “We played our f——ng a— off. That’s f—ing terrible, man.”
The ruling drained the energy out of the fans at Arrowhead Stadium as Kansas City struggled to generate any momentum after that. To make matters even worse, Mahomes was sacked on the following play.
The game ended with Kansas City losing 20-17. This brings their season record to 8-5.
Mahomes completed 25 of 43 passes for 271 yards, including a touchdown pass and an interception. Kelce led with six catches for 83 yards, while Rashee Rice contributed seven catches for 72 yards and contributed a crucial touchdown for the team.
Josh Allen completed 23 of 42 passes for 233 yards and a touchdown, with James Cook making the touchdown catch.
The Bills advanced to a 7-6 record for the season. Last night’s win bolstered Buffalo’s playoff chances, leaving Bills fans hopeful.
