Whereas the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs did dart on to cruise to their 2d straight Great Bowl appearance, the opening 10 minutes of Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Bills wasn’t exactly flawless.
The Chiefs came across themselves trailing 9-0 after wide receiver Mecole Hardman muffed a punt that Buffalo ended up convalescing at the three-yard line.
However moral as Patrick Mahomes entreated the Chiefs to “carry out one thing special” whereas down 24 points early in last year’s postseason, the Kansas Metropolis quarterback was like a flash to raise up a demoralized Hardman’s spirits.
Mic’d-up video from NFL Movies showed both Travis Kelce and Mahomes getting into Hardman’s ears with encouragement after the muffed punt. When Hardman tried to quilt his face with a jacket, Mahomes made a point to dart over to the wide receiver.

“Hi there, Mecole! Hi there, howdy, howdy, search for at me. Hi there, search for at me. Hi there, we moral. Be you. You’re gonna make a play this game. You’re gonna make a play this game. Let’s dart. Hi there, be us. We’ve been here. Be us!”
On the very next Chiefs force, Mahomes would connect with Hardman for a touchdown. Hardman would also break launch with a 50-yard dash in the game.
That’s what leadership seems to be to be savor.
