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’ effort earned him his second consecutive AFC offensive player of the week award.
AFC Players of the Week— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) September 19, 2018
Offense: QB Patrick Mahomes, KC
Defense: LB Darius Leonard, Indianapolis
Special Teams: DB Dane Cruikshank, Tennessee
NFC Players of the Week
Offense: QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Tampa
Defense: LB Danny Trevathan, Chicago
Special Teams: K Robbie Gould, SF
As it turned out, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick accomplished the same feat as Mahomes in the NFC. Just as everyone predicted, your top two quarterbacks in the NFL right now—Mahomes-Fitzpatrick.
Mahomes will go for three-peat this weekend in the Kansas City Chiefs’ home opener against the San Francisco 49ers.
