Patrick Mahomes has another short night at the office

Despite Andy Reid saying QB1 would get a half of playing time, Mahomes checked out during the first quarter.

We got our second 2019 viewing of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes as he gets ready to follow up to his MVP season, and it was a little more playing time against the Pittsburgh Steelers (barely).

In a largely uneventful performance for the Chiefs quarterback, the highlights included an improved slide on a first-down run and a quick throwaway on what looked like a busted play. I’m fine with him protecting himself there. Frankly, I’d be OK with putting him on ice until September.

We were going to write about we saw this week from Mahomes, but it was so minimal. Instead, here are some highlights from Chiefs-Steelers in Week 2 last season. Pretend it was tonight.
