Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are eager to pave the path to their 3rd consecutive Super Bowl. The Browns came close to edging past them in Week 1, but a clutch TD pass to Tyreek Hill saved the day.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, a week 1 loss was never an option. Playing in front of a packed Arrowhead Stadium after so many months, and coming into the game hungry for redemption from the Super Bowl loss, Patrick Mahomes led a late comeback against a talented Cleveland Browns roster.
Trailing 29-20 with 10 minutes to go in the 4th quarter, Mahomes and Hill connected for an unbelievable, and seemingly lucky, 75-yard touchdown. The play cut the Browns’ lead to 2, and KC would eventually win the game 33-29.

The duo linked for a total 197 yards and 11 completions, once again proving why they’re perhaps the scariest offensive tandem in the NFL. However, even Mahomes that he hit a stroke of luck on that ridiculous pass on Sunday.

Following the Chiefs’ victory, Mahomes poked a little fun at his favorite receiver, telling him that he never actually saw him on the game-changing play, but just saw his “little hand sticking up”.

In the post-game presser, reporters obviously wanted to talk about the miraculous 4th quarter moment. One of them asked Mahomes if he had seen the “F*ck it, Tyreek down there somewhere” meme, and the Chiefs QB had a hilarious response.
“It’s funny you said that,” he replied. “I literally just saw that. And I mean, ‘sometimes it be like that’ is what I have to say. Sometimes you just gotta throw it up. He’s a little dude but he goes and catches it and he’s pretty fast, so usually good things happen.”
“Sometimes it be like that” 🤣
