Chiefs' Tyreek Hill becomes latest receiver to use dog pose on field before helping KC to AFC crown

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill dropped to his knees and pretended to urinate like a dog on the field when being introduced at the start of the AFC Championship Game against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

Hill went on to be a key cog in the Chiefs' 35-24 victory, which sealed the franchise's first Super Bowl berth in 50 years. He caught five passes for 67 yards and two touchdowns on seven targets from Patrick Mahomes.

"Even though I had one drop today, that's on me," Hill told NFL Network in an on-field interview. "I wanted to prove that I am one of the top receivers in this game, and I mean that, because I work my butt off to become one of the top receivers in the game."

Hill did not address the pregame introduction during that interview. He also did not have a media availability at the Chiefs' postgame news conference.

Hill's action was reminiscent of what Ole Miss receiver Elijah Moore was flagged for in a college game against Mississippi State on Thanksgiving. Moore also pretended to urinate like a dog in the end zone after scoring a potential tying touchdown in the final minute of the Egg Bowl. After a 15-yard penalty against Moore, Ole Miss kicker Luke Logan missed a longer-than-usual extra point attempt in a 21-20 loss.

Odell Beckham Jr., then with the New York Giants, was fined more than $12,000 by the NFL for pretending to urinate like a dog in the end zone after scoring a touchdown in a loss at Philadelphia in Week 3 of the 2017 season.

The Chiefs fell behind Tennessee 10-0 before Hill got Kansas City on the scoreboard with an 8-yard touchdown catch from Mahomes in the first quarter. He scored again in the second quarter, a 20-yard reception from Mahomes with 4:03 left. Hill had four receptions in the first half for 52 yards.

"It's a blessing to be a part of this offense -- so many weapons -- and just to have a great mind such as Coach [Andy] Reid is another blessing," Hill said. "The way he draws up plays is phenomenal."

Hill also had one carry for seven yards in the win.
