The Kansas City Chiefs had the Baltimore Ravens on the brink. Trailing by a point with under 1:30 to play and the ball at the Ravens’ 32-yard line, the Chiefs were in position to beat the Ravens again, looking to run down the clock and have Harrison Butker kick a walk off field goal.

Kansas City took the ball out of Patrick Mahomes’ hands, giving a late carry to Clyde Edwards-Helaire in order to chew some game clock. Edwards-Helaire fumbled and the Chiefs never got the ball back, as Lamar Jackson sealed the Ravens’ 36-35 victory with a first down carry on fourth-and-1 just four plays later.

A mistake Edwards-Helaire knew he couldn’t make, but his teammates won’t let the miscue haunt him.
