Popular American football Quarterback defends Patrick Mahomes during the Chiefs Christmas game loss mess

They’ve won just two of their last six games. The Kansas City Chiefs, led by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, are facing challenges and a sense of unease after a 20-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Chiefs, with a record of 9-6, have only won two of their last six games, marking the most losses in a season for Mahomes since entering the league.

Despite a history of success, the team’s usual offensive prowess has waned and Mahomes has experienced setbacks with a career-high 14 interceptions this season.

Backed by Rodgers
New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers defended Mahomes on “The Pat McAfee Show,” acknowledging the challenges the Chiefs quarterback faces, including dropped passes by receivers.

“I would say it is mostly overreaction,” Rodgers said.

“To me, it seems like it’s tough right now. Because there’s not a lot of on-time throws, you know, Pat’s so good with the second reaction stuff.

“And even yesterday, he made just silly plays, where he’s extending, late throw, or moving up in the pocket pump, fake, making stuff happen. I just think there’s too much of that, they’re relying too much on that.”

The Chiefs’ offense, typically dominant, has been inconsistent, raising doubts about their postseason potential. The team may miss out on No. 1 seed in the AFC and Mahomes could face his first postseason playing a road playoff game.
