“I can kill them,” JB Bickerstaff threatens Super Bowl referees following Eagles defeat

After a contentious penalty was called in the Super Bowl, the NBA head coach JB Bickerstaff threatened the referees

J.B. Bickerstaff got furious after the Eagles’ Super Bowl defeat.

J.B. Bickerstaff, the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is a die-hard Eagles supporter, so it’s not surprising to see how enraged he grew at the Super Bowl crew on Sunday night. Naturally, Bickerstaff is furious with the holding call on James Bradberry late in the fourth quarter as he attempted to cover Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.

The Chiefs were able to spend a lot more time thanks to the play before kicking the game-winning field goal. He was clearly not pleased with the NFL referees. According to Chris Mannix of SI, Bickerstaff added, “I can kill them (all I want, verbally).” That kind of rhetoric should not be used, whether in a joke or not, especially since there are those supporters who would harm officials if given the chance.

The Chiefs were able to spend a lot more time thanks to the play before kicking the game-winning field goal. With barely eight seconds left in the game the Eagles were powerless, which led Kansas to a historic win. The Cleveland Cavaliers are fourth in the Eastern Conference with a record of 37-22 as of this writing.

Second NFL championship in four years for the Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have won the Super Bowl twice in the last four years. The Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 after coming back from a 10-point deficit at the half by scoring touchdowns on each of their first three possessions in the second half.

By achieving this, the Chiefs made NFL history by becoming the second team to win the Super Bowl after falling behind by a double-digit margin at the half. Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, also made history by being the first player since Kurt Warner in 1999 to win the NFL MVP and guide his squad to a Super Bowl triumph.

Mahomes was absolutely terrific in the second half, completing 13 of 15 passes for 93 yards and two touchdowns while also contributing a crucial 26-yard run on the drive that resulted in the victory. The newly named NFL MVP completed 21 of 27 throws for 182 yards and three touchdowns in addition to running six times for 44 extra yards.

All of Mahomes’ touchdown throws were completed to separate receivers, and tight end Travis Kelce’s field goal from 18 yards out capped the Chiefs’ opening drive. Two wide receivers, Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore, scored scores in the second half, while Kansas City also scored a touchdown on a fumble return in the first.
