Patrick Mahomes trolls Tyreek Hill for losing a step with playful tweet

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes couldn’t help but poke fun at Tyreek Hill for missing out on a long-touchdown in the AFC Championship Game.

On paper, the Buffalo Bills stood as the biggest threat to the Kansas City Chiefs‘ Super Bowl repeat aspirations. But as was the case with many of the other “road blocks” in the course of the past two years, the Chiefs broke through them.

Kansas City defeated Buffalo 38-24 with phenomenal performances by Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. Tyreek Hill had himself a strong game as well, but there is one thing he’d like a redo on. In the third quarter, Hill took a 10-yard pass from Mahomes, sliced his way through Buffalo’s defense and ran for 71-yards before getting tackled just short of the goal line.

After the game, head coach Andy Reid poked fun at Hill, saying the receiver is “getting slower at his old age.” Mahomes also got in the joking jabs, saying he wasn’t going to say anything, but Reid beat him to the punch!

Hill had superb performance despite lack of touchdown

Even though the play didn’t reach the end zone, he still looked pretty fast to us. The thing is, he had no room after safety Micah Hyde and cornerback Taron Johnson. Speed wasn’t going to help Hill there.

The one good thing is that Hill’s huge catch-and-run wasn’t for naught. Two plays later, Mahomes hit Kelce in the end zone for the touchdown to extend Kansas City’s lead to 31-15.

On the day, Hill caught 9-of-11 of his targets for 172 yards. The lightning fast receiver could have had 176 yards and a touchdown on the day, which we are sure Reid and Mahomes jokingly let him know about in the locker room.

Hill faces a tough challenge in Super Bowl 55, as he faces off against a tough Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense. Sure, the Buccaneers did allow an average of 264.3 passing yards per game this playoffs, but they recorded five interceptions in three contests. But, Tampa Bay hasn’t played an offense as explosive as Kansas City’s this playoffs.
