Patrick Mahomes discusses his poor performance against the Bengals

Patrick Mahomes, quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, says his worst postseason game was against the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship.

Since 2018, Patrick Mahomes has guided the Kansas City Chiefs to the AFC Championship game, demonstrating his AFC supremacy.

However, the Chiefs failed to reach the Super Bowl in either of those seasons; in 2018 and 2021, they finished second in their conference and watched their opponents advance to the championship game.

Although Mahomes had a fantastic game against the New England Patriots, which resulted in a narrow overtime loss, the Chiefs’ loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in January still hurts the star quarterback.

The Arrowhead Addict called the 27-24 loss a “total collapse.” Mahomes isn’t the only one who thinks KC could have won the game.

After taking an early lead in the first half, the Chiefs were unable to convert a first-and-goal situation in the red zone before halftime. Here’s how the second half went, as Mahomes alluded to it:

Mahomes and the Bengals were able to pull off a spectacular 21-3 comeback, similar to what Mahomes has accomplished during his NFL career. Unfortunately for Mahomes, he had to watch as the rival team pulled off the seemingly impossible as the Chiefs floundered.

It’s understandable that the game bothers Mahomes, especially after the team’s Super Bowl hopes were crushed by a humiliating loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

The Bengals’ playoff loss, according to Patrick Mahomes, was his “worst postseason game”

Mahomes’ remarks came on the same day that Chiefs podcaster Taylor Witt published some data that has supporters raving about Mahomes’ second-half brilliance.

According to Witt’s research, Mahomes is the least likely to be down in the third quarter and the most likely to come back in the fourth.

The more people dig into the stats on Pat the more ridiculous they become, in a good way. A historic career already and we’re just finishing up the first chapter.

Despite the fact that Mahomes’ performance against the Bengals was not his best, the legendary Chiefs quarterback continues to build a legacy that will go down in NFL history as one of the best.
