Chiefs fall to Packers in stunning fashion as game ends in controversy

The Green Bay Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 31-27 on Sunday night in a game that ended in controversy.

With the Packers leading 27-24, the Chiefs had the ball in the Packers' red zone with just over a minute left in the game.

The Chiefs were irate with the call, and Mahomes argued with officials after the game. He said he never lost possession of the ball, and that the replay showed that his elbow was down before he fumbled.


"I thought I protected the ball," Mahomes said. "I thought my elbow was down, and I thought the replay showed that. But the refs called it a fumble, and that's the game."

Packers quarterback Jordan Love threw for three touchdowns in the game, including a 23-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Romeo Doubs with just over two minutes left in the game to give the Packers the lead.

The Packers' defense also played a big role in the win, holding the Chiefs' offense to just 27 points. They also intercepted Mahomes once and sacked him three times.

The game ended in controversy, but there is no doubt that the Packers deserved to win. They played a complete game on both sides of the ball, and they made the big plays when they needed to.
