Mahomes in his first two years as a starter has brought the Chiefs as the top team in the AFC, helping lead Kansas City to back-to-back 12-4 records, two AFC Championship Game appearances and now a Super Bowl title.
One former AFC West player is seriously thrilled to be away from the division and not face off with Mahomes twice per season.
Last week, former Denver Broncos DT Derek Wolfe signed a one-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, ended his eight-year tenure in the Mile High City. Before he left however, he spoke to Broncos beat writer Mike Klis and talked about how thrilled he is not to dace Mahomes any longer.
“I mean I’m glad I don’t have to play against (Mahomes) twice a year now,” Wolfe told Klis. “Because he was such a huge pain in the ass. You’d get a lead on him and they’d still find a way to come back. They have such a good team all around. I’m excited to be part of another team that’s looking just like that.”
Arrowhead Addict detailed why Wolfe is so happy to be away from Mahomes.
“Against Wolfe, Mahomes is 5-0 with 8 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Last season, the Chiefs steamrolled the Broncos in the season series by a total score of 53-9. In the first game, Mahomes completed 10 of 11 passes before going down with a dislocated kneecap. Mahomes later came back to start the second game against Denver and completed 27 of 34 passes for 340 yards and 2 touchdowns. Mahomes’ career passer rating against Wolfe and company is 103.4.”
Wolfe has now joined another Super Bowl contender with a exceptional QB in Lamar Jackson who is coming off an MVP season.
