Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was on social media recently giving a hard time to his team’s star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
On Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs played against the Atlanta Falcons. During the game, Mahomes came up short on a trick play in the middle of the second quarter. On a fourth-and-1 play, the Chiefs attempted a throwback pass to Mahomes from receiver Sammy Watkins. Atlanta’s Keanu Neal climbed up well above Mahomes to snag the ball out of the air.
Shortly after, the Falcons went on to march the ball 98 yards down the field for the first touchdown of the day. To many people’s surprise, the game ended up being a tight 17-14 Chiefs’ victory.
Meanwhile, on Monday following the game, Mahomes admitted to having a not-so-successful NFL career as a receiver on social media. Hill was ready to let his quarterback hear about it as well.
Mahomes said, “2 targets 0-2 and 1 INT, my career as a wide receiver might be over…”Hill was quick to respond with a nod to Hall of Fame wide receiver Randy Moss.
“You got mossed 😂😂,” Hill wrote on Twitter.
Have a look at the failed trick play below:
Tyreek Hill, Fans React Over Pass Attempt To Patrick Mahomes
It wasn’t just Tyreek hill that was clowning Mahomes after the failed trick play. Kansas City and NFL fans were also quick to react on Twitter after seeing the Chiefs attempt to trick the Falcons.
@chadfromminny says, “I know it was picked, but that wasn’t a bad pass from across the field delivered by a WR.”
@jackiejarrod428 writes, “So are we moving him to running back or what?”
@Yoki1909 says, “Andy Reid is a generational talent in designing plays.
@TKoch8 comments, “This is how you get your QB hurt.”
@clydro_ wrote, “We shoulda passed it to you.”
Finally, @PrezziDaniel says, “It would have been better if he batted that down but I have to respect the stat hustle.”
The Chiefs have definitely made games interesting this season despite their nearly-perfect record. And Sunday’s matchup against the Atlanta Falcons followed that same suit.
Kansas City hosted a 4-10 Falcons team that was ready to play on Sunday. The home team had to dig deep with the game very much in question until the very end.
The Chiefs, however, would go on to withstand the Falcons’ best blows and came away with a 17-14 win. That win helped them improve to 14-1 and secure the AFC’s No. 1 overall seed. They also will have home-field advantage throughout the postseason.
