Matthew Judon takes sly dig at NFL officials favoring Patrick Mahomes after Patriots loss to Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes is arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks in the current crop of players gracing the field every season. His skill, poise, and rocket arm make him a potent athlete in almost any situation, and he brings that forward to good effect with the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, with great skill comes tons of negativity. While Mahomes has handled most of it, sometimes it becomes difficult to ignore when the person hurling abuse toward you is a player on a rival team. That is exactly what happened when the Patriots’ Matthew Judon made a comment about the 29-year-old star QB. Let’s find out more.

Mathhew Judon fires shots at NFL refs and Patrick Mahomes

New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon expressed his dissatisfaction with NFL officiating after the team lost to the Kansas City Chiefs by 10 points. Responding to an AI-generated photo on social media showing Patrick Mahomes and an official in suspicious circumstances, Judon said, “I see no lies.”

The officiating has been a topic of discussion in recent Chiefs games, and the officials are being scrutinized. In this particular game for the Patriots, Kansas City benefited from a penalty flag, a departure from the previous game in which points were taken off the board Judon’s comments reflect widespread frustration with ongoing decisions and the regularity and fairness of officiating decisions in the NFL.

Chiefs defeat Patriots

Kansas City’s 27-17 win over the New England Patriots on Sunday saw running back Jerick McKinnon showcase his versatility by throwing for one touchdown and running for another. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes contributed the most, passing for 305 yards and two scores.

The presence of defending Super Bowl champions, pop star Taylor Swift, and her devoted fans, known as the Swifties in the crowd kept the victory spirit going. The Chiefs even kept the top spot in the AFC West race that they lost after losing two crucial games in a row.

Notably, Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, who is romantically linked to Swift, played a pivotal role in the game, catching five passes for 28 yards but also feeling like a missed opportunity despite a possible dropped touchdown in his hands.
