Mahomes completed 24 of 34 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Chiefs' 29-28 loss to the Chargers on Thursday. He also rushed twice for three yards and fumbled once, but it was recovered by the offense. Mahomes turned in another solid and clean stat line, and his night could have been much bigger had Tyreek Hill not had a perfectly thrown deep ball bounce off his facemask on a play where he was also guilty of an illegal shift. The second-year gunslinger did manage to extend his multi-touchdown streak to nine games, and he's now completed over 70 percent of his passes in six of his last eight contest. Mahomes also managed to make his initial connection with new arrival Kelvin Benjamin, and he demonstrated his adaptability to the personnel carousel in his backfield by connecting with backup running back Damien Williams, who started in place of Spencer Ware (shoulder), on six occasions for a team-high 74 yards. Mahomes will look to help the Chiefs bounce back from their upset loss against the Seahawks in a Week 16 Sunday night road battle.
Mahomes completed 35 of 53 attempts for 377 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's 27-24 win against the Ravens. Trotting onto the field facing a touchdown deficit with 4:04 remaining in regulation against the Ravens, Mahomes was entrusted with a golden opportunity to further bolster his sterling MVP resume. With help from a miraculous cross-field throw to Tyreek HIll that yielded 48 yards, Mahomes led his team downfield to tie the score at 24 late in the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs eventually prevailed over Baltimore with an overtime field goal. Mahomes has been ridiculously productive from the jump this season, but he's rattled off eight straight games with multiple passing touchdowns and at least 249 passing yards (averaging 348.4 passing YPG, with five performances of four or more touchdowns over that span). In Week 15 he and Kansas City take on a Chargers defense that ranks top 10 in both passing yards allowed per game (230.9) and interceptions forced (12).
Mahomes completed 23 of 38 passes for 295 yards and four touchdowns, adding nine rushes for 52 yards during Sunday's 40-33 win against the Raiders. The second-year quarterback continues to play an ungodly level, with 853 offensive yards and 10 touchdowns over Kansas City's past two games following a slight hiccup in Week 10 (career-low 249 passing yards against Arizona). Peyton Manning's all-time single-season mark of 55 touchdown passes remains within reach, as Mahomes finds himself on pace for 54.7 with games remaining against the Ravens (top-10 against the pass), Chargers (top-10), Seahawks (13th) and Raiders (14th). The hope for invested fantasy GMs is that the Texans and Patriots continue to push Kansas City for homefield advantage in the AFC, keeping Mahomes active throughout the fantasy playoffs. His upcoming matchup against Baltimore is the toughest remaining on the slate, with the Ravens allowing just 194.4 passing yards per game (second-fewest in the NFL).
Mahomes completed 33 of 46 passes for 478 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions in Monday night's 54-51 loss to the Rams. He also rushed six times for 28 yards and lost two fumbles. Mahomes reveled in Monday's shootout atmosphere, setting a new career high in passing yards while tossing six touchdowns for the second time this season. Although those exploits allowed Kansas City to flirt with victory, Mahomes' turnovers ultimately proved costly, as he had a second-quarter fumble and a third-quarter interception both returned for touchdowns. Then, with the Chiefs needing him to muster some magic late, he threw picks on the team's final two offensive possessions. Overall, the nature of the contest resulted in a career-worst five turnovers, yet the gunslinger's jaw-dropping skills were still on display plenty as well.
Mahomes (foot) appears on the Chiefs' Week 11 injury report, but he practiced fully Thursday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports. There's little doubt that Mahomes will be available for Monday night's game against the Rams, but his presence on his team's injury report is not entirely surprising, on the heels of absorbing five sacks versus the Cardinals in Week 10. Given that the Chiefs and Rams are the NFL's second and third-highest scoring teams to date, there's shootout potential in a compelling Monday Night Football matchup featuring two 9-1 teams.
