Patrick Mahomes’ fiancee Brittany Matthews wasn’t too pleased with the officiating crew’s performance in the Kansas City Chiefs’ loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
Throughout the high-octane back-and-forth encounter, Matthews criticized the refs for contentious calls against the Chiefs. She agreed with another fan’s sentiment that officiating during the game was “soft.”
Matthews retweeted multiple tweets criticizing the refs before going on a rant during the game’s final play. Matthews wrote: The REFs DO NOT want us to win
The Bengals were at the Chiefs’ two-yard line with two minutes left in the game but failed to punch the ball in on the first three downs as Kansas City’s goalline stand held up well to force a fourth-down decision.
Cincinnati went for it, and Joe Burrow threw an astray pass into the endzone, but a penalty bailed out the Bengals, who got a reset and a 1st-and-goal at the one-yard line. This prompted another angry tweet from Matthews, who was seemingly frustrated with the penalty call, tweeting it was “TOTAL BS.”
The Bengals ran the clock down before kicking a 20-yard field goal to win a thriller and the AFC North title. The loss left a sour taste in the mouths of Chiefs fans, including Matthews, who wrote: We just basically got screwed, that’s all
