The Kansas City Chiefs did a great job spreading the football on offense through the first two games in the NFL season.
In Chiefs’ Week 1 win over the Arizona Cardinals, Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs quarterback, completed nine passes to receivers. He managed to have an encore performance this Thursday against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Mahomes spoke out about the difficulties that the new-look offense poses after Thursday’s win by the Chiefs over the Chargers.
Mahomes must get everyone involved now that Tyreek Hill is no longer on the roster in order to make Kansas City great.
“With the amount of tight ends, running backs and receivers that we have, it’s going to be everything,” Mahomes said, via ProFootballTalk. “It’s going to be a lot of guys catching passes, it’s going to be running the football, it’s going to be throwing the football, it’s going to be deep passes. It makes us a hard offense to stop. And when the defense plays the way they played today, we’re going to win a lot of football games.”
Mahomes completed passes for Travis Kelce and Justin Watson, Mecole Hartman, Clyde Edwards–Helaire, Marquez Valldes-Scantling. Noah Gray, JuJu SmithSchuster, Jerick Mckinnon, and Michael Burton.
The Chiefs will play the Indianapolis Colts on Sept. 25, 2012.
Mahomes will have to be very careful to not make it three consecutive performances where he passes to nine receivers. We won’t let him go.
