Patrick Mahomes isn’t getting past Kansas City’s loss in the AFC Championship anytime soon. Losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game will be singed into Patrick Mahomes’ memory for at least the next year.
During Sunday’s Pro Bowl, the Kansas City Chiefs star explained how only earning another berth in the Super Bowl will allow him to move on.
“I’m still not over it,” he told ESPN’s Lisa Salters. “I don’t think I’ll be over it until we’re playing in another Super Bowl. So, I’ll have to use that as motivation going forward.”
The Chiefs were up 21-3 in the second quarter before mustering only three points in the second half. Andy Reid’s decision to call a pass play on the 1-yard line with five seconds also backfired as the Bengals got the stop and headed into halftime with a lifeline.
Needed that one. 😤

Reid took the blame and said he “could’ve given [Mahomes] something better than that, but Mahomes accepted some accountability as well and said he “got a little greedy there” by looking for the touchdown.
