The Kansas City Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in four seasons in an amazing Super Bowl filled with offensive fireworks from both sides. As entertaining of a game it was, it could’ve been much more entertaining.


Chiefs Super Bowl MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes stopped by the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show on Monday night to interview about the game.

Kimmel asked Mahomes about a particular play in the big event. A trick play in the second half that started with the offense doing “Ring Around the Rosie” in the huddle.

Kimmel asked: “A play like that, is it more embarrassing when you don’t complete the pass after you do the whole thing?”

“Oh yeah,” Mahomes responded. “We worked on that play for so long, and then I knew, we tried to disguise it with all that different stuff happening before the snap, but then I saw #22 point directly at the guy I was going to throw it to.” – Referring to Right tackle Andrew Wylie.

Mahomes decided he wasn’t going to pass him the ball and threw it away.

Mahomes finished off the interview by saying “Chiefs Kingdom, I’m excited to see you there.” when speaking about the Super Bowl parade on Wednesday.
