Patrick Mahomes trolls New York Giants’ Daniel Jones in interview
The Chiefs’ quarterback took a playful jab at the NY Giants’ expense Saturday night.
The Kansas City Chiefs are flying high and looking forward to holding the AFC’s No. 1 seed heading into the playoffs. The New York Giants on the other hand? Not so much.
The Chiefs took down the Broncos to secure home-field advantage through the playoffs in Week 18. Kansas City won in large part to their rookie linebacker Nick Bolton’s scoop and score touchdown from inside the Chiefs’ 10-yard line to win the game. Bolton ran the length of the entire field and kept his composure to stay up and find the end zone.
When interviewed after the game, Patrick Mahomes joked with ESPN’s Laura Rutledge about how “I thought he was gonna go down… He almost went forward. No offense to Daniel Jones, but he almost gave ‘em one of those.”
Mahomes hilariously trolled Daniel Jones and his signature lowlight from last season.
Against the rival Eagles on Thursday Night Football In 2020, Jones took off for 80 yards before tripping and falling under his own feet just yards away from the end zone. This time, it was Bolton who had to run 80+ yards and he made the best of it. The 4th quarter fumble recovery turned touchdown gave the Chiefs a 4th quarter lead for good that they never gave up.
It’s been a rough season for New York Giants fans. But, they can sit back and chuckle at this harmless joke.
