Quarterback Patrick Mahomes quickly came to visit and he and Kelce embraced as they walked slowly towards the center of the tip zone. Soon there have been a cluster of gamers and photographers and inside seconds, it was pandemonium.
Suddenly, Mahomes broke from his teammates and ran towards the sphere of play. He zigzagged round teammates celebrating and not less than one Bills participant, who had taken a knee, all whereas photographers had been in pursuit
At the 35-yard line, Mahomes dropped his helmet after which discovered the individual he was looking for: Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen. The two hugged as Mahomes mentioned one thing to his counterpart.
During his weekly radio spot on KCSP (610 AM), Mahomes was requested why it was so important to him to speak with Allen.
“Obviously, he played his tail off. He really did,” Mahomes mentioned. “Every single series he was battling, he was running, he was throwing and doing everything he needed to do in order to win. I’ve been on that side, I’ve lost that overtime game and not having the chance to get the ball, I know how it feels.
“I wanted to just tell him how much respect I have for him in the way that he played and the way that he battles. It sucks that someone had to lose that game because of how good both teams played. Luckily enough we got the win and get to move on. But I definitely wanted to show him his respect and he deserved it.”
Mahomes’ gesture meant quite a bit to Allen.
“I have a lot of respect for Pat,” Allen mentioned after Sunday’s game. “He throws the winning touchdown and he comes straight over to find me. To be in that situation and to do that, that was pretty cool of him to do that.”
