We’re used to seeing Patrick Mahomes be the ever-cool customer on the field. As the NFL’s arguably best player, Mahomes has made his living on being impeccably creative with the ball in his hands and almost always keeping his cool – especially in tight, hotly-contested games.
After Travis Kelce scored a touchdown to give Kansas City a late third quarter 23-20 lead, the Raiders were penalized for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. It’s not clear what happened in that time to Mahomes – or after – but the superstar was visibly incensed and talking trash with someone as Andy Reid held him back
The NFL world was trying to make sense of what made Mahomes lose his cool at someone, but it wasn’t clear. While unconfirmed, it might have had something to do with Las Vegas pass rusher Maxx Crosby, who apparently was going back and forth with Mahomes all game.
