Patrick Mahomes’ mom Randi Mahomes had to go off on Bengals player Jessie Bates III whom she thought faked an injury during the game. Stopping the game for a moment wasn’t cool with Randi and she had to express her frustration in a tweet via TPS;
Patrick Mahomes family is not having the best of times watching the team play the Cincinnati Bengals.
Late in the second quarter of Sunday’s AFC Championship rematch between Cincinnati and Kansas City, Bengals safety Jessie Bates III went down in the end zone with an injury with the Chiefs threatening to score. However, replay showed something snister.
Bates wasn’t very convincing as his fake injury stopped the game for several moments.
Randi Mahomes, mother of Patrick Mahomes, took to Twitter and responded:
“Come on now,” she tweeted.
The Chiefs scored three plays later on Jerick McKinnon’s 2-yard touchdown run.
The Bengals ended up winning the game.
Joe Burrow got a huge assist from his defense in another riveting duel with Patrick Mahomes.
With the Chiefs leading Burrow’s Bengals 24-20 early in in the fourth quarter on Sunday, Mahomes hooked up with Travis Kelce, who rumbled for a big gain. But while Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt and other defenders were wrestling Kelce to the ground, Pratt forced the ball free and recovered the ensuing fumble.
Burrow took it from there, completing 6 of 7 passes during a 53-yard drive that he finished with a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown to backup running back Chris Evans. The Bengals’ defense held Kansas City scoreless from there and Burrow closed out a 27-24 victory over the Chiefs.
“He’s playing at an MVP level – absolutely,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said. “He gives us a lot of confidence.”
The Bengals (8-4) have won four straight overall and their last three meetings with Kansas City (9-3) — all in the same calendar year. Cincinnati won on Jan. 2 to clinch the AFC North title. Four weeks later, the Bengals beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium in overtime — also by a 27-24 score — to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in 33 years.
