Chiefs HC Andy Reid Reveals Message to Patrick Mahomes Before Unreal 13-Second Drive: ‘Go Be the Grim Reaper’

Thirteen seconds. That is how long the Kansas City Chiefs needed to tie the game and send it to overtime against the Buffalo Bills.

After Josh Allen delivered another touchdown pass to Gabriel Davis to take the lead with seconds left, it looked like Buffalo was headed to the AFC title game. However, Patrick Mahomes had other ideas and somehow engineered a miraculous sequence to tie it up.

After the game, head coach Andy Reid revealed his message to Mahomes before that final drive of regulation.

Patrick Mahomes turned into the grim reaper per Andy Reid’s request

Another perfect quote from Reid. It was grim, but Mahomes delivered.

With everything against them, the Chiefs mustered up just enough for Harrison Butker to knock the ball through the uprights and leave Allen and the Bills in bewilderment.

The Chiefs got the ball at their 25-yard line after Buffalo decided to kick it instead of squibbing it. Then, Mahomes started it off with a 19-yard completion to Tyreek Hill, followed by a beautiful 25-yard completion to Travis Kelce.

That catch set up Butker for an easy field goal, and the rest, as we know it, is history.

Thirteen seconds is all it took, and Buffalo left stunned after one of the best games in NFL history.

Mecole Hardman gets honest on Mahomes after a wild sequence

Chiefs wide receiver Mecole Hardman knows Mahomes deserves that name, even more after an unreal turn of events against Buffalo on Sunday.

The entire fourth quarter was back and forth, and the two teams combined for 25 points in the final 1:54 of regulation as the win probability shifted dramatically with each score.

Mahomes delivered, but Allen stepped up and also answered the call. The Chiefs scored, the Bills scored, and so on.

It was what everybody wanted, and although neither quarterback deserved to lose, Mahomes came out on top — and this 13-second drive is the reason why.

The Chiefs QB was touched that Reid believes in him that much — and why wouldn’t he? Mahomes has done this repeatedly, and 13 seconds is apparently too much time to leave #15.

It was miraculous, and Kelce’s massive catch in overtime won the game and sent Arrowhead Stadium into a celebration while sending Allen and the Bills home for the second straight season.

Can the Chiefs keep the momentum going in a rematch with the Bengals?

Next up for the Chiefs is a rematch with the Cincinnati Bengals. In December, Joe Burrow and company defeated Kansas City in Ohio, and Mahomes mentioned to Ja’Marr Chase that they would see each other again.

It came true, but this time, it comes with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, and it is at Arrowhead. The Kansas City fans rattled Allen and gave him a headache trying to call plays and orchestrate the offense. Still, he didn’t waver.

Will Burrow be able to do the same? Are the Bengals ready to defeat the Chiefs with everything at stake?

Kansas City’s momentum has to be at an all-time high right now after arguably the best game in NFL history, and the offense has combined for 11 touchdowns in the past two games.

A third straight trip to the Super Bowl is in sight for Mahomes, especially if he turns into the grim reaper once again and snatches the dreams of the Bengals.
