Juju Smith-Schuster helps Patrick Mahomes score 44 as Chiefs crush Cardinals

·1 min read

JuJu Smith-Schuster caught six passes for 79 yards his his Kansas City Chiefs debut, a 44-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

The former Pittsburgh Steeler led all Kansas City wide receivers in receptions, yards and targets on Sunday. Marquez Valdes-Scantling caught 4 passes for 44 yards on four targets. Mecole Hardman had 3 catches for 16 yards on six targets.

Mahomes went 30 for 39 with 360 yards, with five TDs and no interceptions. Kelece is now the primary target for Kansas City, but with the loss of Tyreek Hill, I expect Mahomes and this offense to not lose a beat. They will spread the ball around even more than before and become tougher to stop.

There is no replacing Hill’s deep ball skills and breakaway speed, but Kelce, Smith-Schuster and the gang will be fun to watch all season.

The Chiefs host the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday night in a huge rivalry game that will surely send fireworks through social media with Justin Herbert taking on Patrick Mahomes.
