Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t happy with how the first half ended for Kansas City’s offense on Sunday. Even though the Chiefs were leading 14-10 at halftime, Mahomes looked upset as he headed to the locker room and apparently was angry with offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
As the two guys started to walk off the pitch, cameras caught Mahomes and Bieniemy arguing. At one point in the video below, Mahomes took off his helmet and had words with Bieniemy. The two continued to argue until Chiefs coach Andy Reid stepped in to break things up.
It looks like Mahomes was frustrated with the team’s play at the end of the first half. After forcing the Colts to a punt in the final minute of the second quarter, the Chiefs took possession of their own 46-yard line with 34 seconds left. After being hit with a penalty for holding, the Chiefs were quickly pushed back to their own 36 while also losing a precious five seconds.
The Chiefs have a high-powered attack and Mahomes clearly wanted to try to at least get the team within goal range, but Bieniemy had other plans. The Chiefs offensive coordinator called a run from Jerick McKinnon on third down, which ended up running out of time at halftime. After the clock hit zero, Mahomes tracked down Bieniemy to give him a piece of his mind.
The Colts kept Mahomes in check for most of the first half — he only threw 84 yards — so it’s possible his anger at Bieniemy was just his frustration with the entire first half. overflowing time.
