The Kansas City Chiefs were defeated by the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game this weekend, which means the heavily-favorited Chiefs will not be headed to another Super Bowl appearance this year.
While the somewhat unlikely win by a scrappy young Bengals squad deserves plenty of praise in its own right, many NFL fans were especially grateful for one very specific thing - that Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes' insufferably douchey entourage doesn't get to make more cringy TikToks at the freakin' Super Bowl.

Am I the only person who thinks Joe Burrow kinda does look like a young Tim Robbins, btw?
When the NFL world had no hope left, only one man stood in the way of Jackson Mahomes making another TikTok at the Super Bowl: pic.twitter.com/CsdQEWqyXi— BengalsGoated (@BengalsGoated) January 24, 2022

Mahomes may be a brilliant, once-in-a-generation kind of athlete, but the company he surrounds himself with leaves much to be desired. His younger brother, Jackson, has had several notable instances of getting called out for his douchey, narcissistic behavior. Mahomes' fiancee, Brittany Matthews, has also had her share of negative press, particularly after she sprayed champagne on the crowd below her box seats after the team's last win and responded to critics saying it was inconsiderate with the following tweet:
It's no wonder that so many corners of the internet were glad to see this runaway train of entitlement come to a screeching halt. Suffice it to say, a LOT more people are rooting for the Bengals now.
