Patrick Mahomes refuses to blame refereeing for Chiefs’ loss but non-calls have fans convinced NFL is rigged

After the Chiefs lost to the Packers this past Sunday, Patrick Mahomes came forward sharing his take on the missed touchdown as the fandom blames the NFL officials and referred for bad calls:

Sunday Night Football definitely turned out to be a nightmare for the Chiefs, as they lost to the Green Bay Packers by 24-19. However, what fans are more concerned about is a biased judgment by coaches toward Mahomes’ touchdown call.

While the fans think that the NFL is rigged and coaches should be fined for all the late and biased calls, Patrick Mahomes has a different opinion about the missed touchdown attempt. Here’s who Patrick Mahomes blames instead:

The backstory of the missed touchdown throw by Patrick Mahomes

The game was about to finish, with the Kansas City Chiefs at 19-27. The Chiefs were down by eight points, and they needed a touchdown to win their game. To make that possible, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sent the ball to Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

When Patrick sent the ball to Marquez, there wasn’t even a minute left for the game to conclude. Marquez Valdes-Scantling was covered by Carrington Valentine, and it appeared as if the receiver was going to catch the ball, too, inside the 5-yard line.

However, the wide receiver was unable to catch the ball because the cornerback jumped up his back. This prevented Marquez Valdes-Scantling from failing to attempt to catch the ball, and instead he fell to the ground. While fans are unhappy about this incident, Patrick shared his unique take.

Patrick Mahomes refused to blame NFL officials and coaches for the weekend incident

Fans were not happy with the missed touchdown call, but Patrick Mahomes is nowhere to blame for the officials. “If I get the ball out there, then he scores a touchdown. That’s what I’m saying,” explained Patrick Mahomes after the game to reporters.

“You don’t want flags, man. I gotta make the throw. If I make the throw, then I wouldn’t be wanting a flag,” the Chiefs quarterback added further. According to him, it was important for him to make the throw since he wanted to avoid getting flagged.
No defensive PI called on this play.

This incident proved two things that Tom Brady said a few weeks ago. First, NFL referees are throwing an abundance of flags this season, making it more like flag football. Second, Brady’s “Mediocrity” statement is proven to be right here. The coaches need improvement really badly.

Fans are unhappy with referees for not penalising Carrington Valentine for jumping over Marquez Valdes-Scantling

Carrington Valentine jumped over the back of Marquez Valdes-Scantling when he was attempting to receive the touchdown throw by Patrick Mahomes. Valentine’s actions were ignored by referees and that got fans angry at the NFL.

“The nfl needs to do something about the refs not calling obvious penalty calls. And the refs calling bad calls that aren’t penalties. SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE,” commented a fan who thinks the NFL has to do something about referees missing obvious penalties.

“These refs need to be fined for every call that they miss. Not a Chiefs fan but a tru NFL fan. How is that not pass interference? I mean come on. These refs are costing teams #1 seeds and Superbowls,” Tweeted another fan who is not impressed with referees.

“Might be the worst non-call PI I have seen. I’m sure there are others that are up there, but just wow. The NFL product has real issues,” commented an NFL fan who thinks there are certain issues in the NFL that need to be taken care of.

“Just when you think the refs can’t get worse. The last minute of this game is ridiculous. Embarrassing for the @NFL,” commented another fan who thinks the NFL has become embarrassing.

It’s surprising that while there was a lot of criticism pointed towards Tom Brady for pointing out these things, it all proved to be right. How can we ignore that even Aaron Rodgers, Shannon Sharpe, and Chad Johnson feel the same as Brady about the current NFL?
