Tyrann Mathieu had classy response to close win over Chargers

You never know quite what you’re going to get out of Tyrann Mathieu at any given moment. We’ve seen The Honey Badger kicked off the LSU squad, get in the face of Tom Brady and disparage his hometown fans. We’ve also seen him dedicate time to feeding those in need.

Following an electric game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night — a game won by the Chiefs — we saw a subdued Mathieu tip his cap to the Chargers.

Mathieu hit Twitter in complimentary fashion, praising Los Angeles for heading in the right direction.

In addition to his nod toward the Chargers, Mathieu also singled out their quarterback, Justin Herbert.

The Chargers may have fallen on Thursday night, but there’s no denying they are in good hands with Herbert and headed in the right direction. They have the look of an early-exit playoff team right now, but the foundation is being built. Everyone can see that, including Mathieu.

The Chargers and Chiefs have played twice this season, splitting those games. Los Angeles previously picked up a 30-24 victory in Week 3 before losing 34-28 in overtime on Monday night.

Don’t be surprised if Mathieu and the Chiefs meet Herbert and the Chargers one more time this season.
