The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the New England Patriots 27-17 in controversial fashion. The Chiefs have made headlines this season when it comes to referees. Last week, they had a controversial call that surprisingly went against them. That call was enforcing a rule about WR Kadarius Toney lining up offsides.
This week, they played the New England Patriots, who have had a difficult season. With a loss today, the Patriots fall to 3-11 and may fire head coach Bill Belichick at the end of the regular season. However, that does not mean that their players have checked out. LB Matthew Judon made his thoughts on one controversial call in this game perfectly clear.
New England Patriots LB Matthew Judon’s Tweet
During the opening drive of the second half, the referees once again had an impact in a Kansas City Chiefs game. Originally, there appeared to be a Chiefs fumble recovered by New England Patriots FS Jabrill Peppers. However, the referees overturned that play due to an apparent defensive holding penalty on the Patriots.
It allowed the Chiefs to maintain possession and they went on to defeat the Patriots 27-17. However, Patriots LB Matthew Judon did not agree with the penalty. He sent this tweet out to make his feelings on the subject known.
The tweet reveals a fake image of Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes kissing a referee. Judon quoted this tweet from another account. His quote said the following:
“I see no lies.” -Matthew Judon
Kansas City Chiefs Controversy
This is not the first time that the Kansas City Chiefs have had a controversial call surrounding one of their games. Back in Week 4, the New York Jets were livid about a controversial holding call against them when they faced the Chiefs. The Jets had a real chance of pulling off an upset but that penalty killed nearly any chance of that happening.
Then, there was a controversial no-call in Week 5 that benefited the Chiefs. That came against the Minnesota Vikings. A Chiefs player supposedly took his helmet off on the field late in that game. However, the referees did not call a penalty despite that being a clear rule violation.
The only major penalty call that did not go their way was the Toney offsides call mentioned above. Even then, Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid were so outspoken about it that the NFL had to fine them both.
Now, you can add another controversial penalty to the Kansas City Chiefs’ saga this season. Now, Judon is calling it out with the fake image of Mahomes mentioned above.
