Patrick Mahomes is the NFL’s biggest star and it seems like at this point of his career he’s getting superstar treatment from the refs.
In the second quarter in the Pats’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night, Patriots defensive end Chase Winovich forced a fumble on Mahomes which was then recovered by Shilique Calhoun.
Unfortunately for the Patriots, referees ruled that Mahomes was down and the play would instead be recorded as a sack.

Patriots fans were clearly not happy with the call.

“Wow an interception on Mahomes! They might take it back for 6!”
Refs: “The play was dead.”

It’s really weird to see the Pats on the wrong end of these calls.
