After wide receiver Kadarius Toney lined up offsides on a potential game-winning score against the Buffalo Bills, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes made excuses for him all week
Mahomes was penalized $50,000 for criticizing the officiating crew. Toney is a significant reason the Chiefs' receiving corps has struggled this season.
Mahomes has few reliable targets besides Rashee Rice and Travis Kelce. As dynamic as Toney is, he makes too many mistakes.
Toney has a contract until next season. He might be cut by a Chiefs team hoping to win another Super Bowl. Toney is making no winning plays right now
Mahomes seemed irritated with the troubled wideout as he approached the sideline. New England scored after the fumble, regaining the game.
Mahomes always says the right things, and his postgame press conference following a Chiefs win should be no different. Kansas City had lost two straight, and while it wasn't nice, they recovered well against the lowly Pats on Sunday.
