Seems dumb, obviously so in hindsight

I assume they were most afraid of a Chief return (not sure who was back) on a short kick directly into field goal range. Sure… I would definitely be afraid of that too. But not nearly as afraid as I would be of Mahomes starting from the 25 with 2 plays, based on 2 timeouts in pocket.

Seems doubtful that P(long return) > P(2 consecutive passes for 15-20 yards by Mahomes).

So we agree. I don’t get it.
