Patrick Mahomes helped his team to victory despite suffering an ankle injury in the first half.
The former MVP experienced discomfort, completing 22 of 30 passes for 195 yards and a pair of touchdowns en route to the 27–20 victory.
After the game, NBC’s Melissa Stark asked Mahomes about the injury he suffered in the following week’s AFC Championship: “It’s going to take a lot to keep me out of a football game,” the star QB replied. “I’d better go.”
NFL world reacts to Mahomes postgame notes on social media.
“Where’s the picture of the dog in the X-ray when you need it?” asked Mark Gunnels.
“Mahomes” [x-ray],” replied one user.
One user wrote, ‘Greatest ever’.
Mike Jurecki tweeted, “Nothing to see. Plus, eight days off.”
One fan commented, “I love her so much.”
Mahomes and the Chiefs will face either the Bills or the Bengals next week.
