Patrick Mahomes arrived at the stadium feeling unwell and disoriented. After kickoff, things only got worse. The Kansas City quarterback couldn’t overcome flu-like symptoms or a buzzing Denver defense, turning in one of his most pedestrian games of his career in a 24-9 defeat to the Broncos on Sunday.
“Worst I felt walking out of the stadium,” Mahomes said after his first loss in seven starts in Denver and the Chiefs’ first loss to the Broncos since 2015. “Obviously, it wasn’t our day.”
He doesn’t have many off days, especially while playing AFC West clubs on the road. Mahomes was 16-0 in divisional games away from Arrowhead until a very chilly Sunday afternoon in the Mile High City.
Patrick Mahomes did not let the flu or a horrible display against the Broncos stop him from spending quality time with his wife and children. In video shared by his wife, Brittany, it shows Mahomes painting his daughter’s nails.
Mahomes has always displayed amazing leadership skills and even encouraged his WRs after a poor performance. Mahomes and his teammates will shift their focus to their next game against the Dolphins, as they are set to go against former teammates Tytreek Hill.
