Skip Bayless jinxed Chiefs, trying to go back in unrelenting tweet storm as Bengals win AFC Championship

Skip Bayless has never done without hot footage, neither on TV nor on Twitter, nor has he refrained from defending them. Sunday was no different when Bayless took to Twitter, letting all three million of his followers know he had little or no faith that the Bengals could beat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game.

As it turns out, they did, and Bayless looked foolish in the process.

His doubts began to creep in early in the game as Mahomes participated and threw three touchdowns on his first three drives.

He then went on from doubt to fully write off the Bengals in a matter of minutes as their tight-end, CJ Uzomah, went to the locker room with an injury. At the time, he declared it “was not the intention” for Cincinnati, thus proclaiming the Bengals dead in the water.

Fifty minutes later, Bayless doubled that take and even promoted it by indicating that he believes Mahomes will win this year’s Super Bowl.

It is noteworthy that Bayless did not tweet much, if at all, in the second half as the Bengals went on their 21-3 run to send the match into overtime. It’s hard to imagine that Bayless had not taken on what happened, even if it is possible. It is also possible that he realized that he was acting in a hurry and got ready to secure his bets.

But not so fast! The Chiefs won the coin toss in OT, as they did last week, and Bayless, despite presumably the second half, still had confidence that the Chiefs could handle it in the OT.

Then, like clockwork, Bayless began to go back to his statements and secure his bets, saying that he actually chose the Bengals all the time, even though he did so without much conviction.

Eventually, Bayless went from uncovering his efforts to changing his position completely and anointed Burrow in the process.

The show can be called “Undisputed”, but fans will find out on Monday’s show whether Bayless’ recordings of Burrow are undisputed or not.
