A furious Patrick Mahomes stormed through the Kansas City Chiefs locker room, giving a fierce new meaning to the proverb “Be careful what you wish for,” after the Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills 27–24 in the divisional round on Sunday in Orchard Park.

“They asked for it, and they got what they asked for,” the Chiefs quarterback told his teammates. “But he said it, this s–t ain’t done. We come back next week ready to f–king go.”

The Chiefs will now face the Ravens in Sunday’s American Football Conference (AFC) Championship game in Baltimore, marking Mahomes’ second-ever road playoff game.

Before Sunday’s face-off, Bills offensive lineman Dion Dawkins fanned the flames on one of the league’s best rivalries, remarking how Mahomes, 28, hasn’t experienced Bills Mafia “in full.”

“[Mahomes has] only been here once. So he’s never been here. Simple as that,” Dawkins said, according to ESPN. “Pat has never been to the Bills stadium in full. … The environment will be different, and not to say it’s in our favor, but stadium is our favour.”

He added: “I don’t care what nobody says. This is the most dopest feeling I’ve ever had. We’re having two back-to-back playoff games home. Come on now, like we get to leave and go eat wings. It’s cool. So good luck.”

Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce on Sunday connected for their 16th postseason touchdown, surpassing Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski for the most playoff scores all-time.

Despite the snowstorm on Sunday, Mahomes expressed positive remarks about the road environment, despite snowballs being hurled in his direction at the end.

“First of all, this is a great environment, man,” Mahomes said. “It really is. We did hear it all week, man, about playing a road game, and we’re here to prove a point and show that we can play anywhere.”
