Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid has some great advice Sunday night for Patrick Mahomes against the Bills.

The superstar quarterback managed to force overtime after getting the Chiefs in position for a game-tying field goal with just a few seconds left in regulation, and Kansas City ended up beating the Bills 42-36 in OT.

What was Reid’s advice for his superstar quarterback? He told Mahomes as the clock ticked down, “When it’s grim, be the Grim Reaper.”

What an absolutely epic line from Reid! We need this guy out in Hollywood writing movies and TV episodes because that’s something straight from a Taylor Sheridan production.

There are great lines you can use to motivate people, and then there’s whatever level this one is on.

Telling someone to be the Grim Reaper is beyond badass. It’s downright awesome. Even though the Chiefs got the ball back with 13 seconds left and almost zero hope, Reid’s advice was apparently enough to fire up Mahomes to earn the win!
