Expect anything different?

I don’t know how you could have after Patrick Mahomes went 23 for 28 for 326 yards and six touchdowns on Sunday. His passer rating of 154.8 was the league’s top mark.

Mahomes will go for three-peat this weekend in the Kansas City Chiefs’ home opener against the San Francisco 49ers.
