NFL fans think the league helped out the Kansas City Chiefs during their win against the Miami Dolphins Sunday. The Chiefs got off to a hot start and held on to win 21-14. The win improves the Chiefs record to 7-2 and keeps them ahead of the Dolphins in playoff seeding.
The game had several controversial calls that went the Chiefs’ way. Tua Tagovailoa was flagged for intentional grounding, which killed the Dolphins’ momentum. The Chiefs would score a touchdown on their next drive.
Tua was visibly upset after he was the victim of what appeared to be a late hit in the third quarter. But no flag was thrown.
The play in the game overall was sloppy. There were 15 total penalties called. The Dolphins were penalized six times for 45 yards. The Chiefs were flagged more often than the Dolphins, as Kansas City was penalized nine times for 69 yards.
NFL fans call the Chiefs/Dolphins game rigged
Regardless of the Chiefs having more penalties, many fans think the game was rigged in favor of the Chiefs. Here are the best takes of fans venting on X about the Chiefs getting their way in Week 9.

The nfl may not be “scripted” but it very well may be influenced or rigged from a referee stand point. Last week the dolphins definitely were favored by refs. This week, the chiefs by a country mile.
