Tyreek Hill sends strong statement on Chiefs comeback after Super Bowl 55 loss
Although disappointed by his team’s poor performance in the 31-9 blowout loss, the 26-year-old wide receiver vowed to seek redemption next season.
“It definitely hurts, because you want to win and just get that other ring. At the end of the day, I feel like we will bounce back, we will come back, and do our thing next year. Congrats to Tampa Bay, those guys played hard tonight. They did a fantastic job. What we’re going to do is, we’re going to take this one in the chin and we’re going to come back,” Hill said.
Tyreek Hill and the Chiefs were actually the first ones on the board at the start of the game, holding a 3-0 lead over the eventual champs. That margin could have easily been greater, had Hill caught a potential touchdown pass from Chiefs superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Adding more insult to injury, Hill committed one of the biggest blunders of the match when the ball hit him directly in the face during that failed catch.

After a shaky first half, things didn’t exactly get any better for Hill and the Chiefs after the break. Bucs cornerback Antoine Winfield got some sort of revenge from Hill, as he taunted Hill with his own “deuces” sign in the closing minutes of the match. The pair figured in a bit of a rivalry in Week 12, when Hill got the better of Winfield and proceeded to flash the sign to his face.
As far as Tyreek Hill is concerned, the rest of the league better watch out for the Chiefs next season.
