Patrick Mahomes trolled by Kansas City Chiefs fan: one final dropped pass vs the Eagles

The Kansas City Chiefs embarrassing loss on Monday Night Football dropped them from the top of the AFC standings, but that was far from the only drop at Arrowhead Stadium.

Chiefs fan drops a pass from Mahomes

The Chiefs have a drops problem, and it seems to be extending to the fans, as Patrick Mahomes learned in infuriating fashion. As he departed for the locker room after the game, he threw his glove to Chiefs fans in the stands, only to slip through the fingers of the supporters.  Whether it was intentional or not, we do not know. But either way, it encapsulated the frustration of a season where things just have not clicked for the Kansas City receivers, and gave social media ammunition for jokes that wrote themselves.

Key drops doom the Chiefs in scoreless second half vs Eagles

KC wideouts continue to drop Mahomes passes at an alarming rate, like the one from Marquez Valdes-Scantling when he was wide open downfield with 1:42 left in the game for a would-be go-ahead touchdown.  After leading 17-7 at halftime, Kansas City went scoreless in the second half for the third game in a row, allowing the Philadelphia Eagles to come back for an ugly, 21-17 victory.

Mahomes’ receivers, including Travis Kelce, dropped five passes, increasing the Chiefs’ season total to 26 drops, most in the NFL. Justin Watson only caught 5 passes on 11 targets, with a critical drop on fourth-and-25 that ended the game despite a heroic throw from Mahomes that would’ve been enough to convert a first down on their final drive.  “They’re undefeated when they win the turnover battle,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said of the Eagles. “Then you add the penalties to it, a couple of drops to it. We’ve got to take care of that.”

The lack of quality wideouts has been an issue for the Chiefs since they traded Tyreek Hill last year, and it has haunted their MVP quarterback in notable prime time losses to the Lions and Eagles this season. However, Mahomes refused to make excuses or throw his teammates under the bus after the loss, stating that he could have made better throws in the post game press conference.
