By now you know the story – the Kansas City Chiefs would be in the Super Bowl this year if Dee Ford hadn’t lined up offside on a crucial play late in Sunday’s AFC Championship game.
The penalty on the Chiefs’ linebacker negated an interception and gave the Patriots life again, which they took advantage of.
Now there’s new video of a stunned Ford asking a coach on the sideline if he was offsides… and man, you gotta feel for him:
The answer, of course, was yes:
It was a crushing penalty for the Chiefs and their fans but they still could have had a chance to win the game if they could have only had stopped Tom Brady in overtime.
But they couldn’t. And now they’ll have all offseason to reflect on key moments like this one.
You gotta feel for the guy.
