The exciting match between the Chiefs and Bengals ended in a disappointing manner. With the game in the balance, injured Patrick Mahomes tried to scramble for a first down. He was stopped short, seemingly leading to overtime. However, a flag was thrown after Joseph Ossai’s late hit on Mahomes. The roughing the passer penalty awarded the first down to KC.
The roughing the passer call gave KC a first down at the Bengals 27-yard line, allowing Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker to attempt a game-winning 45-yard field goal. The kick barely cleared the crossbar with only three seconds left.
