“The referee issues Patrick Mahomes a significant final warning regarding his helmet issue on the field, emphasizing that this is the second occurrence.”

When he made contact with the Dolphins defender, his helmet broke, sending a large piece of plastic onto the frozen playing surface. The reigning MVP played with the broken helmet before officials eventually stopped the action to let the Chiefs signal-caller swap out his gear.

Users on social media went crazy for this second-quarter-sequence and shared their thoughts about what transpired.

The Kansas City Chiefs’ playoff matchup against the Miami Dolphins has been full of intrigue. Frigid conditions and a frozen mustache stole the show early in the game, but Patrick Mahomes gave fans something else to talk about early in the second quarter as he drove the Chiefs downfield.

Mahomes ran the ball on a broken red zone play that put Kansas City into scoring position and shoved a defender before hitting the turf near the end zone.
