Germaine Pratt is not apologizing for his actions that were caught on camera after Joseph Ossai hit Patrick Mahomes late out of bounds. On a third-and-4 attempt at the Bengals 47-yard line, Patrick Mahomes scrambled to go out of bounds, but Bengals defensive end Joseph Ossai came running in and sent him flying to the ground.
Ossai was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Mahomes after shoving him toward the benches when he was already well out of bounds. That tacked on 15 yards for the Chiefs, who would line up for a 45-yard field goal attempt for Harrison Butker on the very next play, and the kicker connected to help send K.C. to the Super Bowl.
The emotions were raw on the part of the Cincinnati Bengals in the aftermath of losing to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.
As the Bengals departed to the locker room, Pratt could be seen yelling at Ossai, saying, “Why the [expletive] did you touch the quarterback?”
Pratt explained this moment on social media saying, “I have real feelings sometimes they are raw. If you love something as much I do sometimes things will be said in the heated of the moment. But I know what type of teammate I am. And what type of man I am. Trust me no love lost I’m hurt. Remember some ppl with hate you, rate you and shake you and try to break you but I will stand tall like always.”
