Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes exited Sunday's playoff game against the Cleveland Browns after taking a hard hit.

Mahomes was running to the right of his offensive line on an option play when he decided to tuck the ball and fall forwards towards a first down. He took a big hit from Browns linebacker Mack Wilson, and needed to be helped off of the field after getting up looking woozy.
