Wasp Fever is taking over Kansas City

From Madden 20 to a new T-shirt, everybody is talking about 2-3 Jet Chip Wasp.

On Thursday, we posted about this lifetime’s version of 65 Toss Power Trap: 2-3 Jet Chip Wasp.

It was the play quarterback Patrick Mahomes asked for with his Kansas City Chiefs facing third-and-15, down 10 points in fourth quarter to the San Francisco 49ers. You can watch Mahomes ask offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy for the play in the viral video below (as of this writing, the video has 1.5 million views):

“Do we have time to run Wasp?” Mahomes says, referring to time in the pocket.

The Chiefs ran the play and it succeeded, and it shifted the momentum of the entire game. The buzz (see what I did there) led to Madden 20 adding the play to the game on Friday:

Here are NFL legends Brett Favre, Joe Montana and Drew Brees breaking down the play in real time.

Later in the day, our friends at Breaking T decided to put it on a T-shirt, which you may find here (Note: the shirt has since been altered to better reflect the play-call).

Friend-of-the-site and AP lobbyist Peter Schrager of NFL Network’s Good Morning Football apparently plans to wear the shirt Monday on the show.

Wasp. So hot right now. Wasp.
