Nick Wright: “That was the worst loss I have ever suffered as a fan of any team and in any situation, and I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it.” (Full Segment Above)
Check out Nick Wright’s ‘First Thing First’ eulogy of the Chiefs’ shocking AFC Championship loss to the Bengals, in which they blew a 21-3 lead to 7.5-point underdog Cincinnati.
Wright, who was born in Kansas City and has been a lifelong Chiefs fan, called it the worst loss he had ever suffered as a fan, and described his pain as 'personal hell', as at one point the Chiefs had a 94.8% chance to win after they made it an 18-point margin late in the second quarter.
The turning point of the game appeared to be in the dying seconds of the first half when the Chiefs were up 21-10 on the Bengals 1-yard line with 5 seconds to play in the quarter. The Chiefs elected to go for the touchdown instead of the field goal, and a screen pass to Tyreke Hill ended up being stuffed at the one-yard line for no gain.
Mahomes would go 5/21 for 55 yards in the second half and end up throwing a crucial overtime interception that allowed Cincinnati the ability to mount the game-winning drive.
Check out Wright’s reaction above, as his uber-confidence going into Sunday quickly melted away to a mental catastrophe.
