Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs lost to the Eagles on Monday night, 21-17, but they came so close to winning the game in the final minutes when it looked like the two-time MVP hit a receiver in stride for what would have been a long touchdown pass.
Mahomes spoke about the drop after the game, putting the blame on himself rather than on his receiver, saying he could have thrown a better pass.

For real though. So proud to have him as a chief. What a class act. https://t.co/SMCt1gFRno— Blair Sumner (@BlairASumner) November 21, 2023

Gotta give him credit he’s always been that guy. He’s not wrong but still hard to call it on him… https://t.co/mvIRBekiqu— Chris (@ChrisClarkNFL) November 21, 2023
I am not a #Mahomes or #KansasCityChiefs fan, as a matter of fact I can’t stand KC, but you have to admit, the guy is a team player. To take the blame for what was clearly his teammate’s fault…wow. That’s impressive. 😢 #eagleschiefs https://t.co/HI01ifro9j— Dianne (@1BrooklynMom) November 21, 2023
