With less than three minutes to go in their divisional playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Kansas City Chiefs thought they had tied the game. After a 1-yard touchdown run from Spencer Ware made it 18-16, the Chiefs were successful on a two-point conversion to make it 18-18.

But wait. Flag on the play.

Officials called Chiefs offensive tackle Eric Fisher for holding, cancelling out the two points. The Chiefs would get another chance, but Alex Smith’s pass to Jeremy Maclin ended up incomplete.

After the game, tight end Travis Kelce was furious. He launched into a tirade against the ref who made the critical penalty call, saying he should trade in his striped shirt for another line of work.

“(He) shouldn’t be able to wear a zebra jersey ever again. He shouldn’t even be able to work at f**king Foot Locker,” Kelce said according to Arrowhead Pride.

Meanwhile, some players from the two teams had to be separated after the final whistle, as emotions boiled over.

The Steelers would hang on to that 18-16 scoreline to advance to the AFC Championship game against the New England Patriots next Sunday.
