During the game, Patrick Mahomes passed the ball to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, creating a potential game-winning opportunity. However, the ball hit off Valdes-Scantling’s chest and landed on the floor, to the surprise of players and fans alike. As a result of this mistake, the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 21-17.
The commentators attributed the loss to a series of mistakes made by the Chiefs players. Notably, MVS did not catch a single ball despite being targeted three times, which was noticed by football fans around the world. This is the fifth time since 2018 that MVS has dropped a pass on a throw of more than thirty yards.
Social media users flocked to discuss this missed opportunity and its impact on the team. Some suggested that it was just one rough patch for MVS and that he would bounce back stronger than ever. Others were more critical, suggesting that his expectations had been set too high and that he needed to work harder to improve his performance in future games.
