Mack Wilson’s dirty hit on Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes somehow gets no fine

Mack Wilson, Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs, Browns

One of the lasting images from the AFC Divisional Round matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cleveland Browns was Browns linebacker Mack Wilson’s hit on Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes was noticeably shaken after the shady tackle. It relatively took some time, before Mahomes could get back up. He was being assisted by his teammates in finding his footing. The former league MVP would not return in that game and entered the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Second-stringer Chad Henne did just enough to secure the win for Kansas City. The career backup had an interception as he threw for 66 yards. He completed six of his eight passes. On 4th-and-inches, with the time winding down, Henne fired a pass to wide receiver Tyreek Hill for a first down, sealing the win.

Fortunately for Chiefs Kingdom, Mahomes has said that he will be ready to play in the AFC Conference Game this Sunday, per Nate Taylor of The Athletic.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Wilson will not be fined by the league for his controversial hit. The NFL has several fines for specific infractions committed by players, such as horse collar tackles and late hits.

Another controversial moment in the Chiefs versus Browns game was Kansas City safety Daniel Sorensen’s hit on Cleveland wideout Rashard Higgins. Sorensen’s play resulted in a game-changing fumble that resulted in a touchback. Sorensen was also not fined by the league.

With the Chiefs’ victory over the Browns, they face off versus the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
