At the present moment, the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers are entering into overtime and trying to sort out the new rules as both teams finished the fourth quarter of Super Bowl LVIII tied at 19 points apiece.

If you're Rashee Rice, you know it didn't have to be that way.

While the Chiefs might still come away from Super Bowl Sunday with their third title in five seasons, Rice could have been the recipient of the game-winning touchdown as time nearly expired in the fourth quarter for K.C. The rookie wide receiver was wide open on the Chiefs' final offensive play but somehow quarterback Patrick Mahomes didn't see him.

Check out the full replay here:

On the play, Mahomes ended up feeling pressure and going to Travis Kelce in the left corner of the end zone but Rice was available between defenders for an easy six points. Down three points at the time, the Chiefs would have been up by three and an extra point from Harrison Butker would have put the 49ers on the ropes needing a last second miracle.

If you wondered why you saw Rice like this, now you know the reason:

Now Rice can only hope he has a chance for a redo in overtime—or that the Chiefs come away with a victory somehow.
