Jordan Poyer’s wife, Rachel Bush, claims a group of Kansas City Chiefs fans harassed her during the AFC Championship Game.
The Buffalo Bills‘ remarkable 2020 season reached it’s end on Sunday evening, as they couldn’t keep up with the high-powered offense of the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. It wasn’t a great day for the AFC East champions, and as it turns out, one of the player’s spouses didn’t have a great experience at Arrowhead Stadium either.
Rachel Bush, wife of safety Jordan Poyer, was in attendance for the championship game and accused some Chiefs fans of harassing her in since-deleted tweets.
“These drunk chiefs fans behind me knowing damn well I’m a wife saying s*** directly to me, smh yuck,” Bush wrote, via text obtained by TMZ Sports. “I’ve NEVER gotten into it with fans but holy cow … disrespectful … embarrassing …”
Bush clarifies that her comments were not directed at all Chiefs fans
Shortly after her tweets were deleted, Bush sent out another message to clarify that her comments were not directed towards all Chiefs fans. Bush said that there were Chiefs fans that were nice to her, but as is the case at any game, there are always a select few who sully the reputation of a fanbase.
The Bills were coming off their best season in recent memory. In the first year without Tom Brady in the division, the Bills easily pushed their way atop the division with a 13-3 record. Quarterback Josh Allen made the case for him to win the NFL MVP award, while wide receiver Stefon Diggs had a record-breaking season. But Poyer had himself a Pro Bowl-caliber season.
Through 16 regular-season games, Poyer recorded 124 total tackles, five passes defended, four quarterback hits, two sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions. Even with those numbers, he lost out to Justin Simmons of the Denver Broncos and Minkah Fitzpatrick of the Pittsburgh Steelers to make it on the Pro Bowl roster.
Come playoff time, the Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts in the Wild Card Round and limited the Baltimore Ravens to three points in the Divisional Round before falling to the Chiefs. In those three games, Poyer recorded 20 total tackles and one stuff.
To all sports fans, don’t harass the family members of the athletes while attending a game. Seriously, it’s not cool.
