By living in John Gruden’s head without rent, the Chiefs eliminated the Raiders from the playoffs on Saturday without playing the game.
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs have come to the point where they don’t even have to play to win.
Saturday’s Soccer Triple Header finale featured a classic between the Las Vegas Raiders and the Miami Dolphins. He made a staggering decision with four scores in the last three minutes.
Who do you think made a mind-boggling decision?
With a score of 23-22 and less than a minute left in the game, Jon Gruden decided to kneel at the Dolphins goal line instead of punching with a touchdown. He played for a field goal. It backfired when the Raiders allowed the dolphins to go on a drive to win the game with less than 20 seconds left in the game.
“We wanted to get the ball back to the dolphins in the shortest possible time. I thought we did that,” Gruden said. Said After the loss.
But that’s not a big point here, not a mile away.
Gruden’s follow-up comment on that explained why Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs played in the field goal rather than a kill shot from the goal line.
Jon Gruden’s post-match description confirms that the Chiefs defeated him
“We did that for Kansas City, [1:15 seconds left], And Mahomes went down the field and beat us. ” Said When asked why he decided to turn off the clock instead of recording a touchdown. “We felt it was fun to eliminate all watches and all timeouts and put them on the wall with their backs.”
Gruden influenced his decision at a critical location in the critical winning game five weeks later, as it remained completely broken by what Mahomes and Chiefs did to the Raiders.
As a result, Las Vegas misses the playoffs for the third consecutive year under Gruden.
Perhaps the worst of all is making sure that his team’s biggest rivals live in the decision-making part of his brain without rent.
