Chiefs' Mahomes to play another familiar face

Chiefs' Mahomes to play another familiar face

The Rams have 26.

"It's a great group of men", he said, "and we just want to get it right". If we didn't have to play him, we weren't going to do that.

"One thing we talked about all week is really trying to limit those big plays, understanding exactly who they're trying to target", Wilks said.

All the Niemann hype from the preseason culminated in his first National Football League start on Sunday in a game that was an excellent chance for him to prove he's worth rostering. Now, there are a lot of things we can build off to get better. Still managing nearly 250 yards, two touchdowns and a clean game in the interception column, Mahomes played well, but it wasn't the hallmark performance many expected against a weak Cardinals defense.

The Chiefs' offense stagnated on their next drive, punting as a screen pass from Mahomes to fullback Anthony Sherman on 3rd-and-long only produced a two-yard gain. "I will take care of mom for you!" "Turnovers happen. This is just our way of playing defense". They finally got back on the board in the fourth with Ware's game-sealing score.

"That's great for us because we can go after the quarterback", Ford said.

And while Fitzgerald is nearly certain to fall short of the numbers he is accustomed to producing, he is nevertheless providing another year of invaluable service: He's the steady, capable and wise veteran in the ear of Josh Rosen, who is expected to lead the Cardinals for years to come. His team was ready to play on Sunday and he showed some aggression with an early onside kick after the Cardinals came right back to tie the score on their first possession of the game.

Houston has missed four straight games after hurting his hamstring, while Sorensen was added to the active roster this week after landing on injured reserve in training camp with a broken leg.

"Going against Andy Reid for several years in different places, going all the way back to the Eagles, this is part of his M.O. So, we've got to try to limit the big plays as much as possible".

"I was still on four phases of special teams", Niemann said, "so I got a little exhausted out there".

Chiefs linebacker Dee Ford, who picked up one of the sacks and four of the hits on Rosen, came away with respect for the rookie passer for staying aggressive despite the pressure. With the defensive line stepping up in turn, Kansas City's defense looks like it might be turning a corner and it couldn't be happening at a better time.

"I've met him a couple times, been out to California and met him", Mahomes said.
