The Chiefs’ all-star quarterback spoke to Kansas City players after the worst statistical performance of his career
KANSAS CITY – Days after the worst statistical game of his career in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes He said he stood in front of his teammates from the Kansas city chiefs and essentially said that the team’s recent offensive problems they were his responsibility.
“You can watch the video and know that I need to play better for us to be successful,” he stated. Mahomes this Thursday after finishing with a career-low 6.0 total passer rating in last week’s loss to the Tennessee Titans. “There were plays where the guys were unmarked. There were plays where we had downfield duels that I didn’t do that would usually give the guys opportunities to make plays.
“I told them that I have to be better. At the same time, they have the mindset that they are going to try to strengthen me. You’re not going to be able to play your best game every week and that’s where you have to trust the other guys to step up and make the plays for you. “
Mahomes, whose worst previous overall passer rating of 37.4 ever suffered last season against the Denver Broncos, has thrown at least one interception in each of the past six games. He has nine this season, compared to six overall last year.
“They are things that I must always work on and sometimes I lose during the season and I must improve them,” he said. Mahomes about what went wrong against the Titans. “I have to hang on in the protection bag, focus on my footwork, stay on time, all of those things.
“He takes me to certain games every year and it’s something I have to go back to, learn from and improve on. There were times when maybe I could have stepped up and found a place in the bag instead of going out. From there and trying to make something happen. Every time we don’t go on the offensive, it’s usually because I’m doing things like that. “
