Patrick Mahomes-led Kansas City Chiefs finished the 2020 NFL season on a sour note. The 2019 Super Bowl winners failed to make it two-wins-in-two as they lost to Tampa Bay Buccaneers by arguably their worst defeat in the Andy Reid era by a 9-31 margin.

But Mahomes and the Chiefs were eager to respond to their doubters in 2021. They started the season with a narrow 29-33 win over the Cleveland Browns. However, they’ve followed that up with two consecutive losses – t0 Baltimore Ravens in Week 2 and the Los Angeles Chargers last weekend.

Patrick Mahomes is disappointed with turnovers as Chiefs suffer defeat

Speaking to the media after the game, quarterback Patrick Mahomes spoke about how the team needs to work on their turnover percentage in order to close-out games in the coming weeks.

“We scored 24 points with four turnovers. You’re not going to win games with four turnovers in this league. We were moving the ball the way we wanted to and we got ourselves back in the game and gave ourselves a chance in the end, so there’s not much concern. It’s just about going in and putting in the work every single week.”

“The play that I threw to (Marcus) Kemp, just a tad behind him, and it got popped into the air and got intercepted. Probably he catches it, probably is a touchdown. The run that Clyde (Edwards-Helaire) had, he makes a guy miss, makes a great run, got stunned weird and the ball comes out.”

“I throw the ball to Tyreek (Hill) who never fumbles and he gets the ball perfectly hit at the perfect time to fumble…In this league, when you’re playing teams like the Chargers, a good football team… if you don’t execute, you don’t win football games,” Mahomes said via Sports Ilustrated.
