There are many people who are very unhappy about the hit Patrick Mahomes took from Mack Wilson on Sunday (Jan. 17). Top on that list – the quarterback’s mother.
Randi Mahomes shared her anger and frustration about the hit via Twitter on Sunday.
“#51 Wilson that’s some trash football leading with helmet, pulling his head and pushing helmet.. why are you not thrown out!?? Come on NFL,” Randi posted on Twitter.
Fans of Patrick Mahomes agreed with Randi.
“Wilson tried to break his neck, it’s going to his lawyer for sure,” one user posted.
Another said: “51 did that on purpose. He should have been kicked out of the game. Keep talking Randi!”
And, another posted: “I’m not his mom but I am a mom and I agree with her. The browns had a bad play.”
“Wrong mama. That was a clean play. Watch it again,” one user posted.
“Where exactly is the dirty play? His arm is around his body and NEVER touches his neck! Please explain! If you don’t know football, just say that.”
In a show of good faith, Wilson reached out to Patrick Mahomes via Twitter after Sunday’s game. “Prayer to @PatrickMahomes. I pray you back next week! Go be great like you have been!” Wilson posted.
Patrick Mahomes didn’t seem to share his mother’s anger. The quarter kindly responded; “All good brother!”
Patrick Mahomes Exits Game After Hit
Patrick Mahomes took the controversial hit during the third quarter of his Kansas City Chiefs’ 22-17 playoff victory over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
Retired NASCAR driver Clint Bowyer was one of many individuals who wished Mahomes well following the injury.
“End of the day it’s really hard to keep watching games, races, whatever when someone gets hurt,” Bowyer posted on Twitter. “Let’s all hope the most polarizing player on the planet is ok. That’s really all that matters. @PatrickMahomes.”
Mack Wilson’s teammates supported him following the game and the hit. Among them was Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield and defensive end Myles Garrett.
“I want to say that nobody on our team is headhunting, going after guys or trying to hurt a guy, no matter how good he is,” Browns defensive end Garrett told reporters. “We are praying for his recovery and praying for his success. He has always been a quality guy and the way he does stuff for the community. He is a leader on and off the field that you appreciate seeing, especially from a guy of that caliber and just always trying to be a positive force everywhere he goes.”
