Patrick Mahomes is having the worst season of his career in the NFL so far. The Kansas City Chiefs are 3-4 so far this season and it looks as if they are fighting for the bottom spot in the AFC West Conference with the Broncos who are also tied up with the Chiefs in a 3-4 haul this season.

Mahomes, in his latest appearance on ‘The Rich Eisen Show’, admitted the downfall of his team and indicated the main flaws that the team currently suffers. And it’s not the players who are the reason behind their failure, as he believes, “I believe we have the guys, we have the players, we have the coaches to do whatever we really want.”

Patrick Mahomes feels a lack of execution

“I don’t know if it’s necessarily wrong, but I think it’s just the execution,” Mahomes said. “And in the NFL, if you don’t execute, you lose football games. You’ve seen that from us. We play good. I think we can play with anybody, but if we don’t execute and we don’t have great games and we don’t play to the way that we’ve been coached until our ability, we lose.”

Patrick’s introspection has all the key points that the Chiefs need to focus on right now, which are execution and playing to their abilities. The Chiefs have proven in their previous three seasons with Mahomes that they are not just any other team. They can seal a win against any team in the NFL right now. However, their lack of execution prevents them from doing so.

Kansas City Chiefs’ locker room is still excited

Talking about the adversity faced by the Chiefs’ quarterback, he said, “You have to be responsive. It’s the biggest thing if you look at all the great teams. They always have dealt with the spurts of adversity. I think it’s huge and we get a great chance on Monday night to really show that we can get this thing back on track against a really good football team, so I’m excited for it.”

Although the adversity fallen upon the Chiefs is greater than usual. As from being a Super Bowl contender in the previous two seasons to losing four out of seven games this time, is just a lot to go through. However, the 26-year-old quarterback feels the team will be all set to take on their next opponents with even more zest and hope.

“I think the guys in this locker room are excited for the challenge and hopefully, when we look back on this spurt of adversity that we have, we can show that that was the reason why we became the team that we wanted to become.”

The Chiefs will have to take certain reflective steps in order to turn the momentum back in their favor. Where do you think the Chiefs go from here?
