Super Bowl Blowout; Chiefs Handed 31-9 Loss in Super Bowl LV by Tampa Bay

It was not pretty.

From the start of Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs high-powered offense which had dominated so many games over the past three seasons simply didn’t look like themselves, and in the end it was the Bucs who made them pay using a dominating defense for a 31-9 win in Super Bowl LV.

There was no comeback from a double-digit deficit like there was in three postseason games a year ago, this time around it was the Chiefs getting a taste of their own medicine, as the Bucs pass rush forced Pat Mahomes to run for his life an amazing 52 percent of his drop backs.

Forget about the penalties that killed Kansas City all night long – from offsides, unnecessary roughness, unsportsmanlike conduct, pass interference and a number of holding penalties.

It was simply tough to watch, and if you’ve watched this Chiefs team at all over the last three seasons as they’ve dominated the NFL, it was a stunner.

Maybe they had it coming. Playing from behind in the NFL is a quick way to find yourself taking a number of “L’s” instead of “W’s” and the Chiefs it seemed like wanted to test themselves allowing themselves to fall behind to the underdog Bucs.

Tampa’s defense though was just too good, and in the end it was a hard pill to swallow that the Chiefs on this night just were not good enough.

QB Pat Mahomes to Have “Very Light Practice” To Begin Week of AFC Title Game

A report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network states that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will have a ‘very light practice’ today as the prep starts for the Super Bowl Champs against the Buffalo Bills.

The Chiefs remain a three-point favorite to win the AFC Title Game Sunday at 3pm at Arrowhead Stadium.

How Mahomes responds to today’s practice will go a long way in him playing Sunday against the Bills.

He was knocked out of Sunday’s AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Browns with about 7 minutes left in the third quarter when Browns linebacker Mack Wilson drove Mahomes’ head into the ground.

Chad Henne came in, and did enough to lead the Chiefs to a 22-17 win with a heads up run on third down late in the game, and a fourth down pass to Tyreek Hill to seal the win.

Here’s what Rapoport tweeted out about Mahomes and the week ahead to get ready for Sunday’s game.

“Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes will have a very light practice today as part of his plan while in the NFL concussion protocol, source said. Could be listed as limited or DNP, but his work will ramp up during the week. Mahomes, who has no symptoms, will do some tolerance tests, too.”

Video: 8-1 Chiefs Look to Get Revenge For Their Only Loss Against 6-3 Raiders

The Chiefs have just one loss on their schedule thus far in 2020, and that loss came against the team they will play Sunday night in the Las Vegas Raiders.

Las Vegas enters the contest at 6-3, one of nine 6-3 teams in the NFL as they look to make a push for the postseason, while at 8-1 the Chiefs can’t afford another slip up.

Here’s the official game preview from NFL.com.

How “Complete” of a Team are the Chiefs Heading Into the 2020 Season?

Five months ago the Chiefs were hoisting the Lombardi trophy after a dazzling comeback against the San Francisco 49’ers in the Super Bowl.

This last week they took care of their biggest offseason commitment in signing QB Pat Mahomes to a 10-year deal, the biggest in sports history.

So what else could be done to make the Chiefs a more “complete” team as they head into 2020? That’s a great question.

It’s also one that is being tackled by NFL.com, who came out with their list of the most “complete” teams in the league heading into this upcoming season.

The Chiefs do have some things to look out for, and they can’t fall asleep at the wheel if they want to be successful in defending their NFL championship from 2019.

Here’s what NFL.com had to say about how “complete” the Chiefs are:

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Please don’t misinterpret the Chiefs’ No. 3 ranking on this particular list. I’m picking them to win the Super Bowl. Just like I did last year. Shoot, with Patrick Mahomes now signed through the 2031 season, it’s hard to imagine a time when I won’t be picking Kansas City to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL, the best player in the NFL and the best show in sports today. Two teams sit above K.C. in this ranking because their rosters are more well-rounded. But with Mahomes’ singular greatness, the Chiefs enter the 2020 season as the definite team to beat.

And it’s not like the quarterback is surrounded by chopped liver. Home-run hitter Tyreek Hill headlines a receiver group that possesses incredible speed, talent and depth, while Travis Kelce’s the best tight end this side of George Kittle. In the draft, Brett Veach scooped up Clyde Edwards-Helaire, a dynamic all-purpose back whom Andy Reid described as being better than Brian Westbrook. The defense is highlighted by Pro Bowl DT Chris Jones. He’s a difference-making star — just look at how he wrecked the 49ers’ Super Bowl hopes — and K.C. needs to get him signed. Safety Tyrann Mathieu is a certified stud. So is edge menace Frank Clark.

Chiefs QB Mahomes Agree to Record Breaking 10-Year, $503M Extension

Winning a Super Bowl will do wonders, and for Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes he’s now set to be the highest paid player in the history of North American sports.

The Chiefs and Mahomes agreed on Monday on a deal that will pay him a whopping $503 million dollars over 10 years, keeping him with the Chiefs through the 2031 season.

How extensive is the deal that Mahomes is signing? How about 117 pages.

It is worth a colossal $503 million with $477 million in guarantee mechanisms which gives Mahomes the ability to have outs if the mechanisms are not exercised, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport and NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported.

As pointed out, the deal is the first time in history that a player is set to make over $500 million in a contract, and it couldn’t go to a better player.

Mahomes will get a $10 million signing bonus after he and the Chiefs rallied to overtake the 49ers in February’s Super Bowl, giving the Chiefs their first Super Bowl victory since Super Bowl IV.

The QB tweeted out a reaction video that ended with: “And we’re staying together … for a long time. We’re chasing a dynasty.”

Both the Chiefs and Mahomes wanted to get the deal done before the start of training camp in July, so in that regard the two sides got what they wanted.
