In the AFC Championship Game, the Kansas Chiefs had a four-point lead with under two minutes to play against the New England Patriots. A Chiefs' defender caught a tipped pass for an interception that would have essentially iced the game for Kansas City.
Unfortunately, a flag was called on Dee Ford for having lined up in the neutral zone, resulting in a five-yard penalty that wiped the interception.
A new video was just released that shows Ford on the sideline, having been told that the flag was thrown because of him.
His response was, "They told me I was offsides. [pause] Was I?"
Unfortunately for Ford, he was, in fact, offsides, and the team suffered because of it.
Tom Brady and the Patriots finished the drive with a lead-taking touchdown that required the Chiefs offense to respond with a field goal to force overtime.
In overtime, the Patriots won the coin toss and got the ball first. They promptly drove down the field and scored a touchdown, securing their spot in Super Bowl LIII and continuing Kansas City's 49-year Super Bowl drought.
It was an unfortunate end to what had been a career-year for Dee Ford.
The former Auburn defensive end had a career-high 13.0 sacks, 55 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, and a league-leading seven forced fumbles.
His final game of the 2018 campaign will be in the Pro Bowl this weekend - the first of his career.
