Patrick Mahomes addresses his cringeworthy moment with Josh Allen

Patrick Mahomes talking to Josh Allen after a Chiefs-Bills game

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on Monday expressed regret for how he acted after his team’s loss against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night.

The Bills outlasted the Chiefs 20-17 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Trailing by three with about a minute left, the home team appeared to have scored a go-ahead touchdown courtesy of wide receiver Kadarius Toney. However, the Chiefs’ spectacular TD score, which included a lateral pass from tight end Travis Kelce, was wiped away by a penalty flag. The officials ruled that Toney was lined up offsides prior to the snap.

The 2-time Super Bowl champion was absolutely incensed about the call from that point on. The enraged Chiefs star had to be held back by his team from jawing at the officials on the sidelines.

Mahomes was still lambasting the offsides call even as he went up to congratulate Bills QB Josh Allen. Mahomes’ seemingly poor sportsmanship quickly went viral on social media (video here).

Mahomes addressed the situation in a Monday appearance on “The Drive” with Carrington Harrison on 610 Sports Radio. The 2-time MVP repented for his viral outburst and for his lack of respect toward Allen after the game.

“More than anything, I regret the way I acted towards Josh after the game because he had nothing to do with it,” said Mahomes. “I was still hot and emotional, but you can’t do that, man. It’s not a great example for kids watching the game. I was more upset about that.”

Mahomes explained that his reaction Sunday was a result of how passionate he is about the game of football. He also added that his passion doesn’t excuse the behavior he displayed in defeat.

Mahomes went 25/43 for 271 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception in the 3-point loss to the Bills.

After starting the season 6-1, Mahomes and the Chiefs have lost 4 of their last 6 contests.
