While Patrick Mahomes' reaction was inappropriate, the Chiefs quarterback has a valid grievance with NFL officials
It wasn't that the Kansas City Chiefs were defeated on Sunday night that was the astounding sight coming from Arrowhead Stadium.
Heck, since their Week 10 bye, the defending Super Bowl winners have lost three out of four games.
Additionally, they have now lost to the Buffalo Bills three times in a row—well, at least during the regular season.
.No, it wasn't just another embarrassment in a title defense that was about to sink. It was watching Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback, go utterly insane.
Even if it's probably pointless, the two-time league MVP and two-time Super Bowl MVP may be vying for Tom Brady's GOAT designation
but he hasn't quite perfected TB12's capacity to escalate an argument from zero to anger.
When things don't go Mahomes' way, which hasn't occurred much in his six years as a starter, he usually just grimaces silently or maybe even briefly protests to the referee.
However, once the 20-17 result was decided, he lost control and became irrational on Sunday.
Wideout Kadarius Toney's offsides call negated an apparent go-ahead 49-yard touchdown with 72 seconds remaining. Mahomes then fired up the seam to hit tight end Travis Kelce
who brilliantly hit Toney on a lateral covering the final 24 yards of the play.
