The Cincinnati Bengals have rallied to tie the Kansas City Chiefs, thanks in large part to a bizarre Patrick Mahomes interception in the third quarter.

With his team leading 21-13 and facing 2nd-and-3 in their own territory, Mahomes tried to squeeze a throw through a crowd of defenders near the line of scrimmage.

Instead, Bengals defensive tackle B.J. Hill tipped the ball and intercepted it.

To say the interception from Mahomes was unexpected would be an understatement. It's the first pick he's thrown in an AFC Championship Game, and this is the fourth one of those he's played in. Not surprisingly, the NFL world was shocked at the development.

Cincinnati converted the INT and great field position into a Joe Burrow to Ja'Marr Chase touchdown pass, followed by a two-point conversion to tie the score.

The game is tied at 21 early in the fourth quarter on CBS.
