Was Chris Jones really sipping beer there on the sidelines as a video of him goes viral
The Kansas City Chiefs struggled in the first half against the terrible home team when they travelled to Houston to play the Texans, much like another playoff candidate did the previous week. Despite being two touchdown favourites going into the game, Patrick Mahomes’ team only scored 13 points in the opening period and trailed by one point at the break.
Know What Was Chris Jones Really Drinking On The Sidelines After Alleged Video Of Him Sipping Beer Goes Viral

Chris Jones was assumed to drink from a glass bottle on the sidelines.
Star defensive tackler, Chris Jones appeared to be drinking a beer on the sidelines and was the highlight of Kansas City’s first half of play. He appeared to drink from a glass bottle on the sidelines of the Houston Texans game while the Kansas City Chiefs offence was on the field and cameras panned over to the sidelines.
Actually, it appeared to be a Heineken. But all it was just water. It turned out to be Mountain Valley Spring Water, the most celebrated bottled water in the country. However, a glass bottle on an NFL sideline is extremely unusual. It feels like asking for danger when there are so many enormous bodies flying around on the pitch and occasionally onto the sidelines. So, Jones must drink water, though.
The 16-oz green bottle with red highlights, which indicated that it was still and blue stripes, which indicated sparkling, was not an uncommon sight for people who had spent money on costly, energizing water. According to ProFootballDoc, Jones was only trying to hydrate himself after struggling with an illness all week, despite the public’s believing that he was downing beers and some criticized the NFL for the phoney “offence”.
The Baltimore Ravens safety Marcus Peters was fined $14,037 for “unsportsmanlike conduct” in 2019 when the player shotgunned a beer with spectators, demonstrating the NFL’s strict stance against drinking during games.
On Sunday, Chris Jones had a fantastic outing.
The Chief’s defense seemed dejected at the outset of the game in Week 15 after a disorienting start against the mediocre Houston Texans offence. In a surprising performance that was geared up for the biggest upset, the hot Chiefs were trailing Houston the entire first half.
In the second half, the Chief’s defense came out re-energized, hanging on for Patrick Mahomes and the offence to equalize the score at 24, and eventually win it in overtime, 30-24, on a walk-off touchdown run from Jerick McKinnon.
Chris Jones entered this game with a season total of 32 tackles and 11 sacks. His previous high was 15.5 sacks in the 2018 season; thus, this is his biggest since then.
