How the Chiefs Won, the Eagles’ Lack of Mercy, and a Bad Sunday for Officiating

The MMQB NFL Podcast

Jan 30 2023 • 46 mins

It was one debacle and one (albeit sloppy) thriller on Championship Sunday, and Conor and Gary are here to discuss how we ended up with a Chiefs-Eagles Super Bowl. And how NFL officiating might have hit a new low in the process.

First, Patrick Mahomes’s exceedingly impressive performance on a bad ankle and with three receivers—how did he make it work? Plus, the Ossai push, Skyy Moore redemption, and the botched series of officiating decisions that led to the do-over.

Then, a trip to Philly where Conor saw first hand how the Eagles dealt with Nick Bosa, and how truly unwatchable football can be when one team literally runs out of quarterbacks. Also, the long day for the 49ers’ best defensive players, and Park Avenue drops the ball on DeVonta Smith dropping the ball—and hangs the officiating crew out to dry in the process.

Also, a vocabulary word that might not be new to you, and regrettable road-trip late-night food decisions.
