“He was saying, ‘It’s out, it’s out,’” Duvernay-Tardif mentioned. “Nobody actually understood what he meant at the moment after which we noticed it. That’s once we began panicking.”
Adam Reiter, the staff’s heart, had Mahomes on prime of him through the play.
“I think I was just yelling, ‘Get off me,’ but I didn’t realize it was him,” Reiter mentioned. “And everybody’s telling me, I’m hearing from the refs, ‘Just stay still, stay still.’ And I’m just laying on my stomach face down. I just had to listen to the refs and not move. As soon as I realized it was his voice, I was like, all right, I’m not moving an inch.”
According to the Kansas City Star, Tyreek Hill screamed into the air and took off his helmet in frustration whereas Demarcus Robinson needed to get away from the scene as shortly as potential.
“It looked deformed,” Robinson mentioned, in keeping with the Star.
