Tyrann Mathieu breaks his thumb and expresses frustrations in Kansas City Chiefs win

The Kansas City safety had an outburst on the court against Washington and continued with insults on social media

Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu was furious Sunday. He had an outburst on the field when his team allowed Washington convert to third and 16 at the end of the first half, and again on the touchline when they broke cover to allow the only opponent’s touchdown in the game.

Then he went to social media, insulted on Twitter and also revealed that he broke his thumb. during the Chiefs’ eventual 31-13 win.

Mathieu was fired up during the sequence at the end of the first half, one that ended with Washington leading 13-10. He took off his helmet after the play of third and 16 and was screaming on the Chiefs side. After the series ended with Washington’s 39-yard touchdown, he continued his spiel, apparently aimed at no one in particular, on the sideline before being calmed down by defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

“They are high expectations,” said Mathieu. It was the first time the Chiefs allowed less than 29 points all season.

“Obviously we can be a championship defense,” he said. “We have been in the championship for the last two years. After a while you have to play in a certain way and when it comes to third and long you have to leave the football field.”

When asked if he was upset by Chiefs’ defensive decision or effort on the play, Mathieu added: “It was third and long. It doesn’t matter what play the coach calls. As players you have to execute. Obviously you have to have the recognition of the training. You just need to have a sense of urgency. I think the whole defense took the play off. The coach is going to call the game and as players we have to do it well. “

The Chiefs responded well to the outbreak. They left out Washington in the second half.

“They love it when I go crazy,” Mathieu said of his teammates. “I don’t know why. The coaches like it. … I felt like we did a great job this week and I thought the goal was to keep those guys down to 10 points or less. Every time you don’t reach your goals, I get pissed off. little.

“Spagnuolo knows me. He knows that I am never angry with my teammates or with him. The expectations are higher and I want us to play as we practice.”

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was also stirred later on social media. He responded to a question about why he didn’t make a certain tackle by saying he broke his thumb. He later deleted the tweet, but also made fun of others through posts.
