Joseph Ossai's hit on Patrick Mahomes during the AFC championship game is now infamous for the Cincinnati Bengals, but he wasn't left to face the scrutiny alone.

B.J. Hill, the 311-pound defensive tackle for the Bengals, protected his teammate Joseph Ossai during a post-game press conference.

Hill warned reporters that he would shut down the conference if he deemed any questions to be "dumb."

The Bengals lost the game 23-20 to the Kansas City Chiefs with a field goal in the final three seconds of the game.

The loss was especially hard on Ossai, who was flagged for unnecessary roughness with eight seconds left, allowing the Chiefs to win with a 45-yard field goal.

Despite support from his teammates, coaches, and Hill, who protected him during the press conference, Ossai expressed regret for his actions.

Hill emphasized that the loss was not just Ossai's fault, but the result of a team effort.
