Patrick Mahomes was furious with a referee during Sunday night’s game against the Bills after an offensive offsides penalty nullified a late touchdown for the Chiefs.
The dramatic sequence began when Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce in the middle of the field with just 1:20 left on the clock. Kelce then executed a lateral pass to Kadarius Toney, who sprinted into the end zone for what seemed like a game-changing touchdown.
The crowd at Arrowhead Stadium erupted in celebration, but their jubilation was short-lived as the play was called back due to the penalty.
Mahomes couldn’t contain his frustration and forcefully slammed down his helmet while shouting at a referee. He also voiced his complaints to Bills’ quarterback Josh Allen during the game.
After the match, Mahomes and Allen had a conversation, and Mahomes could still be heard expressing his displeasure over the officiating decision.
“Worst f—king call I’ve ever seen.”
“That was f—king terrible”
Patrick Mahomes was NOT happy.

This incident marked the second consecutive week that the Chiefs found themselves questioning the referees’ decisions. In the previous week’s game against the Green Bay Packers, they were left wondering why a pass interference call was not made on a hail mary play.
Despite the setback, Josh Allen managed to lead the Bills to a 20-17 victory over the Chiefs, completing 23-of-42 passes for 233 yards, with one touchdown and one interception. This performance may not have been dominant, but it was enough to secure the win for Buffalo.
