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.”
