Many NFL fans were cheering for the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game. But not all of them were rooting for the Bengals because they like the team. Some of them just didn’t want to see the Kansas City Chiefs win, and it had nothing to do with the team’s players or coaches.

Instead, it had everything to do with Brittany Matthews, the polarizing fiancée of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

“Thank sweet baby Jesus we don’t have to see Brittany Matthews for another year,” one commenter wrote on Twitter.

Matthews sparked backlash on Twitter after she posted a video of her spraying Champagne on fans at Arrowhead Stadium after the Chiefs’ 42-36 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills on January 23 in the AFC Divisional Round.

“The ramifications of your actions; innocent fans drenched in cheap champagne possibly leading to frostbite or even hypothermia, children with alcohol in their system. You need to take responsibility for your actions and issue a public apology,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Hope no kids were down there.. Sure you’d have a fit if Sterling was showered with Champagne,” another user wrote.

Twitter Users Heckle Matthews Following Chiefs’ Loss

Matthews used the social media backlash as an opportunity to fuel an anti-bullying campaign, which included “Team Brittany” T-shirts. Still, she continued to feel the wrath after the Chiefs’ loss on January 30.

Many thanks to Joe Burrow and the #bengals for eliminating Jackson Mahomes and Brittany Matthews,” one Twitter user wrote, referencing the Bengals quarterback and the younger sibling of Patrick Mahomes.

“Congrats Bengals!! We don’t have to see or hear from Jackson Mahomes or Brittany Matthews until September,” another person wrote.

#joeburrow deserves to win the #SuperBowl just for keeping @brittanylynne8 out of Los Angeles,” another commenter wrote.

“Can we get a Tik Toc of Jackson Mahomes and Brittany Matthews dancing on the Chiefs season being over?” another user wrote.

Chiefs Lost to Bengals in Heartbreaking Fashion

Kansas City’s offense hit the ground running in the AFC Championship Game. The Chiefs’ first three offensive possessions resulted in touchdowns, which gave them a 21-10 lead at halftime. However, Cincinnati climbed back into the game, scoring 20 unanswered points, starting with a touchdown in the second quarter.

The Chiefs wouldn’t score again until Harrison Butker’s 44-yard field goal on the final possession in regulation. The kick sent the game into overtime.

After winning the overtime coin toss, Patrick Mahomes was intercepted on a deep ball to Tyreek Hill on third and 10. That put the Bengals in a position to win the game via a touchdown or field goal. After nine plays and 42 yards gathered by Cincinnati’s offense, kicker Evan McPherson sealed the victory for the Bengals by making a 31-yard field goal.

Mahomes finished the game completing 26-of-39 pass attempts for 275 yards and three touchdowns, while also throwing two interceptions. Burrow completed 23-of-38 pass attempts for 250 yards and two touchdowns, and also had one interception.

Kansas City’s 2021-22 season ends with a 12-5 regular-season record, an AFC West title and an AFC Championship appearance for a fourth straight season. The Bengals advance to the Super Bowl and will face the Los Angeles Rams, who beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in the NFC Championship Game.
