After Patrick Mahomes saw the way the Buffalo Bills were defending him as well as the Kansas City Chiefs at Monday night’s 26-17 win, it induced him to flash backagain.
“If teams will do that, we have got to run the soccer till they develop, and if they develop, we are going to throw the football .
We just stayed with it, and when groups will play with us like this, you are likely to see us run the football, and we’ve got the men that will do it”
The Chiefs (5-1) ran the ball over they threw it for just the second time in Mahomes’ 37 begins. They have been rewarded for the plan with a success.
Mahomes was still effective as a passer, moving 21-of-26 with just two first-half touchdown passes to Travis Kelce. However, Mahomes threw for just 225 yards from the courthouse (4-2) on a rainy night in Buffalo.
Rookie running Clyde Edwards-Helaire along with the running game proved rather the offensive celebrities. The Chiefs rushed for 245 yards, their most because 2012, together with Edwards-Helaire becoming 161.
It was a dramatic turnaround in last week, even when Mahomes fell back 46 days in a reduction to the Las Vegas Raiders, whereas Edwards-Helaire along with other Chiefs backs combined for 11 carries.
“I did not believe I gave the men enough of an opportunity a week , particularly the second half,” Reid stated. “We are best if we have some type of a balance moving, once you can sort of move back and forth. It places an enormous amount of strain on the shield. And so we had the ability to do , and we felt as though we had both within this match.”
The Chiefs blocked so nicely that 197 of the rushing yards came ahead of the ball carrier was touched by a defender.
“For those who have days like this, things only appear to part like the Red Sea,” Edwards-Helaire explained.
The Chiefs played all this match without two starting offensive linemen. Guard Kelechi Osemele ripped a tendon in every one of his knees at last week’s match, and handle Mitchell Schwartz left Monday’s game for good in the first half due to a back injury.
The Chiefs dominated anyhow — to the point that Mahomes said he needed to fight the impulse to throw more moves.
“It was certainly different,” he explained.” [The Chiefs had] some of these [run-pass choices ] known, and that I had to tell myself to not throw that, just keep handing off that thing “
