Hill, who played for the Chiefs from 2016 to 2021, discussed Sunday night’s controversy on his podcast ‘It Needed To Be Said.’ He remarked that the Chiefs were “saved” by the referees.

Hill didn’t stop there and went on to suggest that the decision in the Jets game may have been influenced by Taylor Swift’s presence in the stadium. He said, “The Chiefs got saved like that last year for real though, against the Eagles in the Super Bowl if we being for real. Then they come back and get saved in the Jets game.
