Kansas City Chiefs star Tyrann Mathieu denied making a lewd taunt toward opposing fans in Sunday's 27-3 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

The three-time All-Pro refuted a report he told members of the Nashville crowd to "go sit on a d--k."

I can’t believe this dude lied on me.

Chiefs cornerback Charvarius Ward also denied the incident in question happened:

This is a damn lie <a href="https://t.co/cboX96mS2f">https://t.co/cboX96mS2f</a>

After the denials of the report, Kuntz followed up, saying he was "standing by" what he heard but issuing an apology to Mathieu:

Harold R. Kuntz @HaroldRKuntz3

I am standing by what I heard, but I should not have tweeted it, in hindsight. It was a frustrating game but should not have shared that info on social. For this, I apologize <a href="https://twitter.com/Mathieu_Era?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@Mathieu_Era</a>

Mathieu and his Chiefs teammates had a day to forget.

The Titans stormed out to a 27-0 halftime lead and carved Kansas City open for 277 yards through the first two quarters. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes finished a pedestrian 20-of-35 for 206 yards and one interception while losing a fumble.

Andy Reid's squad is the two-time reigning AFC champion, but at 3-4, qualifying for the postseason could present a major challenge.

The Chiefs don't have a whole lot more margin for error before making the playoffs becomes an issue.<br><br>They probably need to win 7 of their next 10 to make it.

Regardless of what happened on the sidelines Sunday, Mathieu's frustration seems to be building as the Chiefs fall short of expectations.

Their fans might reach for the panic button if the team is unable to overcome the New York Giants on Monday Night Football in Week 8.
