Jack Jones posts Grinch photoshop on IG to mock Patrick Mahomes after Raiders’ steal upset win over Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes started the 2023 NFL season with a hope for securing consecutive Super Bowl titles. However, let alone the title, they are now grappling with adversities to even secure a playoff run. After a humiliating loss to the Buffalo Bills, which witnessed Mahomes losing his cool on the sidelines, the defending champions somehow bucked up and secured a win against the New England Patriots.

However, the Chiefs again stumbled and lost their recent match against the Las Vegas Raiders 14-20. Following the loss, the Raiders cornerback, Jack Jones, didn’t shy away from making the frustration of the Chiefs team and Mahomes double by posting a controversial image on social media.

Jack Jones can’t stop trolling Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs

Jack Jones did more than just talk the talk as he walked the walk and stole the show. Prior to the game, he pinpointed Patrick Mahomes as the crucial player to contain, saying,” It’s Patrick Mahomes we’ve got to stop. You stop the magician, then the act is over.”

The CB not only lived up to his words but surpassed expectations and his standout moment came with an interception off a Pat pass, turning the tide in favor of the Raiders. His sprint to the end zone for a pick-six in the second quarter shook the defending champions and propelled the Raiders to a surprising lead.

Following the win, the Raiders star decided to pull the legs of the Chiefs squad and their QB. Embracing the role of the Grinch, he took to social media, and posted a photoshopped image of himself as the infamous character, symbolizing his “theft” of Christmas from Arrowhead.

Controversy also brewed when Jones engaged with Chiefs fans during the game. Approached by a young Chiefs fan eagerly seeking a football, the cornerback declined to grant the request.

Patrick Mahomes breaks down in tears after Raiders defeat

The loss against the Raiders not only shook the Chiefs fan base but also brought about an emotional display from Patrick Mahomes, who was visibly moved as the clock wound down.

Cameras captured the veteran struggling to contain his emotions on the sidelines. As the Raiders reveled in their unexpected triumph, Mahomes, with tears in his eyes, fought to maintain composure. It was a stark contrast to his usual composed demeanor, which perfectly symbolized the weight of the defeat.

The signal-caller earlier openly expressed his disappointment. He was seen berating his offensive linemen, whom he gifted personalized Christmas gifts days ago, as they struggled against the Raiders’ formidable defense. The Chiefs’ offensive performance has notably faltered over the past few weeks and placed an even greater burden on their defense to keep them in playoff contention.

However, the game itself was a stark reflection of the Chiefs’ recent struggles. In the initial half, Pat managed just 97 passing yards, committing costly errors that led to defensive touchdowns for the Raiders. His interception followed by a fumble resulted in a rapid 14-point swing and left the defending champions trailing 17-7 by halftime.

This defeat has significant playoff implications, as the Chiefs now find themselves out of contention for the top seed in the AFC. Their hopes to secure the AFC West title rest on securing a victory in their upcoming game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
