Mahomes To Return For week 10 Of The NFL Season
November 9, 2019
The Kansas City Chiefs are getting star quarterback Patrick Mahomes back in the lineup. It has been reported by the Associated Press that Mahomes will get the start on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans after missing the last two and a half games with a dislocated kneecap he suffered in a 30-6 Chiefs win over the Denver Broncos on October 17.
In Mahomes’s absence, Matt Moore filled in admirably. He threw a 57 yard second-half touchdown pass in the Chiefs win over the Broncos, had two touchdown passes, 267 yard passing and a respectable quarterback rating of 107.1 in a 31-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers and then had 275 yards passing this past Sunday in leading the Chiefs to a 26-23 field goal win over a stingy Minnesota Vikings squad.
However, as long as Mahomes is with the Chiefs, he will be the team’s quarterback. His remarkable mobility and playmaking skills has made him an elite National Football League quarterback. Last season in his first year as a starting quarterback, Mahomes led the NFL with 50 touchdown passes. Prior to his injury against Denver, he had an amazing touchdown to interception ratio of 15:1.
The Chiefs are the current leaders in the AFC West at six wins and three losses. However, they need to be concerned at the moment by a solid Oakland Raiders squad that is second in the division at five wins and four losses. On Thursday, the Raiders moved past the .500 mark with a 26-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.
The Chiefs seem to be the best team still in the division. They easily beat Oakland 28-10 in northern California back in week two. Mahomes will need to be on top of his game for the next two months of the season to ensure Kansas City wins their fourth straight division title.
