The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers squared off in an exciting, hard-fought Sunday Night Football game, with the Chiefs walking away with a last-second win after an impressive drive with roughly a minute left.

The scoring was going back and forth, with each team seeming to have an answer for the other's score, and the Chargers entered the 4th quarter with a 20-16 lead. Kansas City quickly took the lead with an early 4th-quarter TD by Travis Kelce. Then, with just 1:46 left on the clock, Chargers wideout Josh Palmer caught his second touchdown on the night, giving the Chiefs a 27-23 lead.

Chiefs wideout Mecole Hardman was placed on IR earlier in the week, so he was not traveling with the team and watched the game from home like the rest of us. Let's just say things appeared to get a little intense at the Hardman household.

Mecole Hardman Broken TV

The wideout destroyed his TV, seemingly after the late Palmer TD. Hardman tweeted out he didn't know who had won, because his TV broke. Little did we all know, it seems the broken TV was not a factory error, but a user emotional malfunction by Hardman's own hand.

It wasn't until Hardman tweeted out a picture of what his TV looked like that everyone realized he may have gotten a little too excited watching the game. While smashing TVs because of the result of an NFL game is far from a new thing, it's usually done by fans, not by guys who are actually on the team.

Then again, with Hardman being on IR for the next few weeks he'll be a fan just like us, and in his first week in that role Hardman took it to the highest level.

In hopes that Hardman doesn't cost himself another TV, the Chiefs should be in control of their Week 12 game, where they are currently 14-point home favorites over the Los Angeles Rams, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
