Patrick Mahomes was pissed off at the end of the game vs the Buffalo Bills to the point that he had to be restrained by his teammates from going after an official who called Kadarius Toney offsides on a play that ended with the Chiefs scoring an amazing touchdown.
That frustration carried over to the post game press conference where Mahomes went off on officiating, saying they are taking out of the players hands.
“It’s tough to swallow. Not only from me, and football in general, to take away greatness like that, for a guy like Travis to make a play like that, you want to see the guys on the field decide the game. They’re human. They make mistakes. But every week, we’re talking about something,” Mahomes said.
“It’s the call. Just in that moment. Not for myself. To have a flag change the outcome of the game. I’ve never had offensive offsides called. If it does, they warn you. There wasn’t a warning the entire game. And then you make a call like that in the final minute? Another game, we’re talking about the refs. It’s not what we want for the NFL. It’s not what we want for football.”
The Chiefs dropped to 8-5 on the season with the loss to the Bills on Sunday afternoon.
