After the game, Hill commented on the situation.
Hill’s touchdown and the extra point tied the game at 40, but the Patriots marched down to kick the game-winning field goal with three seconds left.

Tyreek Hill and Drew Rosenhaus want to take action against fan that doused the Chiefs WR with beer Sunday. They are talking to the NFL/NFLPA about options. “That type of behavior is unacceptable,” Rosenhaus said. “Players have to be protected. We want that fan to be prosecuted.”
