Patrick Mahomes was not happy with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy.
Before halftime, Bieniemy decided to run out the clock instead of going for another play which apparently annoyed Mahomes.
Patrick Mahomes and Eric Bieniemy got into it at the end of the first half after the Chiefs just ran out the clock. Mahomes was right: Chiefs should have at least tried to run one more offensive play. Not sure if it was Reid or Bieniemy who decided not to, but they were wrong.

An angry Mahomes was then caught by CBS’ cameras arguing with Bieniemy.
Chiefs’ head coach had to separate Bieniemy and Mahomes.
The @NFLonCBS broadcast caught Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Eric Bieniemy in a clear argument, in what we could only presume was Mahomes wanting to continue to try to score. The Chiefs let the half run out.
Head coach Andy Reid had to break up the disagreement.
