Patrick Mahomes ate his humble pie on Sunday night.
Mahomes had a classy response after the game. Mahomes played through a flu on Sunday, but he didn’t make excuses after losing in Denver.
“Obviously, I felt the worst I’ve felt walking out of the stadium [mentally],” Mahomes said after the loss. “It’s a great environment, I actually had a lot a lot of fun playing here. The fans are awesome. They enjoy the game and know the game, but it just kind of is what it is. They beat us, they were a better football team today and I give them their props.”

Even after a bit win on Sunday, the Broncos are still just 3-5, so they have an uphill climb to fight for a playoff position. Even Denver can manage to sneak into the postseason, that could present be their first opportunity to face the Chiefs again. Otherwise, the Broncos will have home and away games against Kansas City again in 2023.
Suddenly, the Broncos-Chiefs matchup feels like a real rivalry again.
