BALTIMORE (AP) – Not only that, Patrick Mahoms threw for a ton of yards and four touchdowns. The most impressive was how he did it.
Mahoms joked, danced and jumped out of his pocket. Sometimes he just fell back and threw the pinpoint downfield. He passed the shovel and waved it to the side.
The general thread was that he did exactly what he did for the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, who went through a Baltimore Ravens 34-220 on Monday night.
Mahoms put on a scintillating show as Lahore performed to dismiss Jackson, leading 21-1 against the rest of the NFL and 0-1 against the Chiefs as a quarterback at the start of the regular-season.
With Mahoms in the lead, the Chiefs (3-0) emphatically ended Ravens’ 14-game regular season winning streak, while extending their own run to 12 games (including playoffs). Mahoms made his1 for 5 in 385 yards and averaged 5.5 yards on his four run attempts.
“They don’t give that person half-a-billion dollars for no reason,” said Ravens defensive tackle Claus Campbell. “It simply came to our notice then. You have honored him. ”
Mahoms, who signed a 10-year-signed 50 503 million extension in July, paid the Chiefs on Monday night for his money, surgically cutting off the Baltimore defense that allowed just two touchdowns in his first two games.
“You had to give credit to Pat to lead the charge. He took a big step, “said Kansas City coach Andy Reid.
Mahoms was not stopped, and was left to fend for himself. The Chiefs led 27-10 at halftime and continued to beat Baltimore (2-1) for the third year in a row.
“The plays we ran, we got in the right situation,” Mahoms said. “I felt like the guys on those plays have been executed at a very high level.”
In the duel between Mahoms, the 2018 NFL MVP, and the player who won that honor last year, Jackson had no match in that match, including a Super Bowl MVP trophy in his resume.
Jackson completed 15 of 28 passes for 97 yards and ran for 83 yards, 30 of which were on a single carry during the Ravens ’early possession. That was almost not enough against Mahoms, whose performance Jackson describes in one word: “excellent.”
The Chiefs made a touchdown on their first two assets – one on a run by Mahoms, the other a Shovel pass Anthony Sherman – for a 13-3 lead. After that second score, Ravens rookie Devin Duverne kicked off the field and hit down. right side For a 93-yard touchdown.
Kansas City followed with three in and out, but Baltimore just couldn’t contain Mahoms for long. After he got the ball back, Mahoms completed a 29-yard and 18-yard pass before hitting Tyrick Hill for a 20-yard run to cap a 73-yard drive.
a 49-yard touchdown pass Heads from Mahoms to McCall Hardman were placed by 17 at halftime. Jackson was just as far behind at break in the NFL game last year, while the Chiefs took a 23-6 lead.
In this, Kansas City pumped the brakes in the second half, before Baltimore closed 27-22. That’s when Mahomes showed why he’s the highest paid player in the league and arguably the NFL’s best quarterback.
During the 13-game, 75-yard drive, which scored a game-cleaning score, Mahoms converted to third and 5 with an 18-yard pass and ran for 12 yards in the third and 10th. He flipped a sidearm 12-yard pass to Sammy Watkins, scoring the first and goal in 2, from where Mahoms tossed a touchdown pass. Admirable face Eric Fisher 8:14 left.
The meetings were attended by an estimated 250 people at the meetings of the immediate family members of Ravens players, coaches and front office fee employees. They were scattered in many parts behind the Baltimore sideline.
They were more animated than the cardboard cutouts of the people behind each end zone.
