Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs fell down 24-0 to the Houston Texans in last week’s playoff game.

The rest seemed to be history with Kansas City ultimately coming out on top by the score of 51-31 to earn a spot in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Tennessee Titans.

We knew that a similar slow start against a defensive-minded and run-heavy Titans team likely wouldn’t lead to the same end result.

Unfortunately for Chiefs fans on hand at Arrowhead, that’s exactly what happened. Kansas City fell down 10-0 after just nine minutes of action following a Derrick Henry touchdown run.

This obviously led to some major reactions from the NFL world.
