Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs secured a playoff berth and clinched their eighth consecutive AFC West division title in Week 17 by defeating the Cincinnati Bengals.
Despite the celebratory moment, the victory was not without its share of drama, as wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling attributed a dropped pass to the reigning NFL MVP.
The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback had a noteworthy performance.
He completed 21 out of 29 attempts for 245 yards, a passing touchdown, and zero interceptions.
However, his connection with Valdes-Scantling faced scrutiny during the game, particularly on a critical third-and-3 play where the wide receiver gestured that the pass was off-target.
Despite finishing the game with only one reception for three yards, Valdes-Scantling’s dropped passes have become a recurring issue.
This echoed a similar occurrence in their Week 11 Monday Night Football game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
