Following the Chiefs loss to the upstart Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the narrative quickly turned to incompetent officiating as the Bengals were able to run over 6 minutes off the clock and kick a game-winning field goal as a result of a 4th down penalty in the end zone. Patrick Mahomes never got a chance to lead the team down the field which was, perhaps, the biggest shame of all.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid refused to comment after the game Sunday citing he did not with to get fined for discussing the officiating. Bengals QB Joe Burrow said multiple times that his team “got some calls” and it was later revealed that the crew designated to call the game was discombobulated and 4 substitutions occurred including the lead official or “white hat.”
