Just how good is Patrick Mahomes? Both Josh Allen and Justin Herbert have been getting plenty of credit for coming close to beating his Kansas City Chiefs whereas no one blinks when he knocks off the competitors.

Mahomes has just won so much that it’s expected, and sometimes the team as a whole is taken for granted. After trading Tyreek Hill this offseason, there were questions about how the offense could change — but it didn’t. Instead, they use more of a committee and Mahomes spreads the ball all over the place.

In their Thursday Night Football victory over the Chargers, he hit nine different targets, and eight had multiple receptions. This team was already hard to defend and now with so many players involved, it’s arguably tougher to beat them.

Plays on Monday Night Football vs. Tennessee Titans

When looking at the 31-10 win over the Rams, it appears the Buffalo Bills were unstoppable all night. However, that wasn’t the case.

They won by three touchdowns despite having four turnovers on the day. That’s quite the feat and had they not turned it over, this could have easily been a larger blowout.

That’s bad news for the Tennessee Titans who come to Orchard Park for the first of two Monday Night Football contests. Buffalo is going to be focused on not turning it over and if they play cleaner than they did against L.A., this one could get ugly in a hurry.
