Patrick Mahomes did not have anywhere near his best game on Sunday, and it came at the worst possible time of the year.
“They were the better team today,” Mahomes said. “They beat us pretty good, the worst I think I’ve been beaten in a long time.
“They took away our deep stuff. They took away the sidelines and they did a good job of rallying to the football and making tackles. We weren’t executing early, had a few miscues. Guys weren’t on the same page. Credit to them. They played a heck of a game defensively and offensively to beat us.”
Some of Mahomes’ comments are being blasted this week as social media thinks he was throwing his teammates under the bus:
“I just think we weren’t on the same page as an offense,” Mahomes said. “I wasn’t getting the ball out on time. The receivers were running routes not exactly where I thought they were going to be at. The offensive line, they were good sometimes and sometimes they let guys through. When you play a good defense like that, you’ve got to be on the same page as an offense, and we weren’t today and that’s why we played so bad.
Mahomes was 26-of-49 for 270 yards and two interceptions. His QBR of 49.9 was the second worst of his NFL career.
