Nick Wright was in rare form on First Things First the day after his beloved Kansas City Chiefs lost at home to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship.

First Things First‘s Nick Wright has been through a lot as a Kansas City Chiefs fan, but he was simply beside himself on Monday morning’s show after the Chiefs lost at home to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship.

Kansas City had all the momentum in the first half before a complete and total brainfart on the final play of the second quarter took easy points off the board. Joe Burrow and the Bengals outplayed Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in the second half to clinch a Super Bowl victory in overtime. It was a tough loss for sure, but Wright had a full-blown Lin Elliott meltdown on air.

This was the second time this season that the Bengals beat the Chiefs head-to-head.

Was this a tough loss for Kansas City? Yes, but Wright and the rest of Chiefs Kingdom need to get over it quickly. They still have a great team, but nobody wants to hear a pity party out of this fanbase. Chiefs fans have to accept that the upper crust of the AFC has caught up to them. The Buffalo Bills nearly beat them a week ago and the Bengals ended their season on their home turf.

Ultimately, winning is hard. It is unbelievably hard, and that seems to have slipped out of the minds of many people in Chiefs Kingdom. You don’t just show up to a stadium and expect to win. This isn’t a college football blue-blood going up against cannon fodder. This is the NFL, a league that at its very essence tries to create parity. It is why nobody is on top for very long in this league.

Chiefs fans may have every right to think they can win a Super Bowl next year, but the days of them treating every fall Sunday like it is a cakewalk are completely over with and done.
