NFL Films Reveals What Patrick Mahomes Said to Joe Burrow After Bengals Win Over Chiefs


Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs struggled in the AFC Championship game. They blew a 21-3 lead in their loss to the Bengals and struggled a lot in the second half of the game.

The Chiefs scored just three after halftime and Mahomes threw for just 55 yards and two interceptions in the second half. One of the picks proved costly, as it came in overtime and gave Cincinnati the opportunity to drive for the game-winning field goal in their 27-24 win.

Despite the stunning nature of the Chiefs’ win, Patrick Mahomes was nothing but gracious in the loss. As NFL Films captured, he warmly congratulated Joe Burrow after the game and cheered him on his way to his first Super Bowl.

“Way to play, man,” Mahomes told Burrow. “Good luck bro. Go win it all.”

This isn’t the first time Mahomes has had a positive post-game message for Burrow. After the Bengals beat the Chiefs 34-31 in Week 17, Mahomes and Burrow met in midfield to shake hands.

“You are brave bro,” Mahomes said. “See you all in the playoffs.”

Mahomes’ prediction came true this time. Now, Bengals fans are hoping his words portend good fortune for their team as they prepare to face the Rams in Super Bowl 56.
