Three teams are still alive in the race to claim the top seed in the AFC and the coveted first-round bye in the NFL playoffs: the Kansas City Chiefs, the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals. Two of those teams play each other on Monday night when the Bengals host the Bills, and the quarterback of the other team will be watching.
During a press conference on Sunday, Patrick Mahomes revealed that he’ll tune in to Monday night’s matchup, joking that “it’s going to keep me up past my bedtime.”
“It’s going to keep me up past my bedtime,” Mahomes joked in his postgame press conference according to Pro Football Talk. “I try not to be too invested in it. It’s going to be a great football game with two great teams. And teams that you’re probably going to see in the playoffs, probably both or one or the other.
“You just try to just watch as a fan like I always do. I mean it’s great quarterbacks, great defenses, great players and as a fan of the game I like watching great football teams go up against each other.”
