Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid had the utmost confidence in Patrick Mahomes’ ability to get the team where it needed to be with 13 seconds left in the game against the Buffalo Bills.

Mahomes marched up the field and threw key passes to Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce to get the team to within field-goal range to allow Harrison Butker to kick the game-tying field goal. Butker sent the game into overtime, and Mahomes’ touchdown pass to Kelce won the game.

After the game, Reid was asked whether he gave any advice to Mahomes when things were looking “grim” with 13 seconds left and their season on the line.

Reid responded: “When it’s grim, be the grim reaper and go get it. He did that. He made everybody around him better, which he’s great at. He just does it effortlessly. When it gets tough, he’s gonna be there battling.”
