One of the biggest decisions during Sunday night’s Super Bowl matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs came late in the third quarter when Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni settled for a field goal in a fourth-and-six situation late in Chiefs territory. The decision felt uncharacteristically conservative for the Eagles, and it was at that moment that one of their star players became very concerned.

During an interview on Tuesday, Eagles star wide receiver A.J. Brown revealed that he felt that his team might lose the game when they settled for a field goal to only go up 27-21.

“When we went up 27-21, I knew deep down there was probably a chance we were going to lose,” Brown said according to Howard Eskin of WIP.

Brown also said during the interview that it’s been “a tough 48 hours” and that he has been “dreading this interview” since the game concluded and that it’s “tough right now.”

Ultimately, Brown was right. The Kansas City Chiefs stormed back and ultimately won the game by three points. Had the Eagles scored a touchdown instead of a field goal on that possession, it’s very likely that they would have won the game.
