“After inspiring the Chiefs to their third straight playoff win over the Bills, Mahomes faced an unexpected reception from the home crowd as he was targeted with snowballs.”

Patrick Mahomes was pelted with snowballs by furious Bills fans after inspiring the Kansas City Chiefs to another playoff victory over Buffalo on Sunday night.

In another classic encounter between the two quarterbacks, Mahomes got the better of great rival Josh Allen for a third straight time in the postseason as the Chiefs held on for a 27-24 win over the Bills.

Tyler Bass’ late field-goal miss to tie the game with under two minutes to play – reminiscent of Scott Norwood’s infamous ‘wide right’ miss in Super Bowl XXV – cost Buffalo dearly as they crashed out of the playoffs at the Divisional Round

It was a gut-wrenching defeat for the hosts at Highmark, where freezing temperatures had left the stadium covered in snow before fans cleared it away ahead of the game for a wage of $20 per hour.

And following their latest postseason loss to Kansas City, Buffalo fans let their frustrations boil over when Mahomes ran over to the crowd after the game.

As he appeared to head over to sign some autographs for Chiefs fans in the crowd, footage circulating on social media shows the quarterback being pelted with snowballs by home supporters from above before running for cover.
