JACKSONVILLE, Fla. ? Early in the second quarter Sunday at TIAA Bank Field, Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs? crown jewel and the stuff the team?s dreams are made of, went on a little jaunt around right end to leave us cringing over how vulnerable he was.
Especially against a surly Jacksonville defense that already had knocked Tyreek Hill out of the game and was apt to treat officials? whistles as guidelines more than rules in the Chiefs? 40-26 season-opening victory.
Before you could even exhale, one play later Mahomes got tangled up and mangled some in a scrum 15 yards or so from a near-brawl that initially distracted from what had happened to him with the Chiefs holding a 17-10 lead.
