Brittany Mahomes accuses NFL referee of rigging game between Chiefs, Bills

Brittany Mahomes recorded a referee from her Arrowhead Stadium suite on Sunday and shared it to Instagram Stories with the caption "MVP." She is essentially accusing an NFL official of rigging the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills.

Mrs. Mahomes is only echoing what her husband, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and head coach Andy Reid, publicly voiced after losing their second consecutive match.

With fewer than two minutes remaining in the Week 14 match, Kansas City's potentially game-winning touchdown was called back due to an offensive offsides call.

The fact that Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce caught a ball from Mahomes and then gave a 20-yard lateral to wide receiver Kedarius Toney, who ran it in for the score, added even more excitement to the play.


At the line of scrimmage, Toney, on the other hand, just put one toe past the football and failed to check to make sure he was aligned correctly with the official.

Toney set the pace in the Chiefs' Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions by missing a few throws, and the Chiefs now lead the league in dropped passes.

He also had a few more drops against the Bills, but the Chiefs' defeat stems from his carelessness at the line of scrimmage, so Kelce won't receive that highlight.

This season, Skyy Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling have both had crucial drops that could have won the Chiefs a few more games.

Whether it's Brittany, Patrick, or Coach Reid, blaming the officials comes from a place of frustration—they haven't been in this situation since the Mahomes era.
