There are bad takes, and then there is just what a news station tried to put out as truth that made no sense.
The Kansas City Chiefs, playing in their fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game, entered Sunday as the clear favorite to advance to yet another Super Bowl, which would’ve made it their 3rd-consecutive. Early on in the game, that appeared to be the case as they took a 21-3 lead.
However, the Cincinnati Bengals put on a furious comeback that took the game to overtime where they shocked the Chiefs in overtime on their home field, ending their season.
After the game, Kansas City TV station KMBC tweeted out a supportive message following the upset loss that might have made sense if they were speaking about any other team.
“We were never supposed to be here. We were never meant to make it this far. But against all odds, we did. What a season. Thank you for the incredible ride. We will always be #ChiefsKingdom,” they said in a since deleted message.
It was deleted because social media roatsed their lives away for such an insane take.
Mahomes completed 26 of 39 passes for 275 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday’s 27-24 overtime AFC Championship Game loss.
Burrow finished the game with 250 passing yards, two touchdowns and one interception.
Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are headed to the Super Bowl. It will be the Bengals’ first Super Bowl appearance since 1982, which is a historic achievement for a second-year quarterback.
