Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs says he has to reevaluate what I’m doing’ after an unusually high number of turnovers.
After the Chiefs‘ 38-20 defeat to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night, Patrick Mahomes accepted responsibility for the team’s woes, claiming his turnovers were to blame.
“It begins with me,” Mahomes said after his team’s three turnovers against the Bills including two interceptions and a fumble loss. “It’s not something I’ve done before in my career,
but I need to rethink where I’m at and the choices I’m making.”
“In terms of scrambling and making passes, I’ve been a crazier player.” However, I’ve never been known for throwing a lot of interceptions throughout my career.
I need to take a look at it right now, rethink what I’m doing, and cut it out.”
Mahomes flung a bullet that bounced off Tyreek Hill’s hands and straight to Bills safety Micah Hyde,
who had nothing but mushy green grass in front of him after the teams exchanged punts to open the second half,
which was delayed an hour by lightning. He returned it 26 yards for his first pick-six of the season.
On their following drive, the Chiefs marched into the Buffalo red zone,
but Mahomes fired a ball that Greg Rousseau knocked down at the line of scrimmage.
The rookie defensive end was able to intercept it for a second time.
“With the receivers and where they were going, and with Pat,
we weren’t on the same page,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “I’ve got to improve on it.” “I’ve got to make sure that happens.”
In his last three games, Mahomes has had six turnovers, including five interceptions.
This season, he has six interceptions and is on pace for 20. In 2018, he reached a career-best of 12 points.
“I know what we’re capable of when it comes to turnovers and huge plays,” Reid said.
“I understand what you mean. All we have to do now is finish it.”
This season, Mahomes has 16 touchdown throws, but just 2.67 touchdowns per interception.
His lowest career percentage is 4.17,
which he achieved in 2018 when he threw 50 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.
Mahomes said, “We know we have what it takes to be great.”
“Now it’s just a question of getting together and figuring out how to accomplish it.”
