Payments followers argued it was a transparent case of tripping. Chiefs followers argued Jones was held within the first place. Neutrals had been caught in between. Whichever aspect you fell on, it didn’t change the end result. No flag got here out so Buffalo was compelled to punt.
Regardless of the irritating no-call, the Payments had been in a position to get the ball again and took a lead over Kansas Metropolis with a landing on their subsequent drive. Since Patrick Mahomes was intercepted whereas attempting to guide his crew again down the sphere to reply, perhaps this was a case of “ball don’t lie.”
