The Kansas City Chiefs are starting a bit of a new era in 2022 after the departure via trade of star Tyreek Hill.
But one thing that remains the same is current starting quarterback and former Texas Tech signal caller Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs played the first of their three NFL preseason games on Saturday, losing to the Chicago Bears, 19-14 at Soldier Field.
But Mahomes picked up right where he left off last season, with a brilliant performance to start the game.
Mahomes and Co. they quickly adjusted to life without Hill as offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy adjusted to the new passing targets of Marquez Valdes-Scantling and JuJu Smith-Schuster.
In his limited action, Mahomes completed 6 of 7 passes for 60 yards and a touchdown. This prompted a couple of shout-outs from his wife Brittany on social media.
Coming off a 12-5 season in which the offense scored 480 points, the Chiefs hope to repeat as AFC West champions in ’22, and it all starts with Mahomes.
A standout at Texas Tech from 2014-16, Mahomes left for the NFL before what would have been his senior season. He threw 1,349 passes for 857 completions and 11,252 yards, and 93 touchdowns to 29 interceptions in 32 games for the Red Raiders.
