Kansas City Chiefs quarterback and MVP favorite Patrick Mahomes joined The Rich Eisen Show on Tuesday to discuss a number of items. It’s a fantastic 12-minute interview Infant Rashad Fenton Jersey , which you may find in its entirety here. Being one of the lead journalists on NFL Network, Eisen first wanted to know about what head coach Andy Reid means to him in his first year as a starter.“We have a great relationship,” Mahomes said. “I feel like we’re always on the same page. He explains things to me so well that I really understand it and can be comfortable out there on the field. When we get out there and we’re together on the bench ... we go over the last drive, we go over the things we want to do to try to exploit what the defense is doing and we just go over the plays that are coming up next.”Upon hearing that, Eisen asked Mahomes for a specific example. Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports“Being able to know the coverages that the defense can throw at you—where the ball needs to go, how you need to get through your read,” Mahomes answered. “I feel like with that, it makes me feel so much more comfortable in the pocket.”Then Mahomes revealed that Reid has him so prepared, he hears his head coach’s voice during the course of a game.“I can recognize the coverage based on the film study from the week,” Mahomes said. “Then at some point you hear that little voice in your head of coach Reid talking to me, telling me if they play this coverage, we need to go through these reads versus if they play the other one. “Just having that, it makes it so that I can play fast on the field, go out there and get the ball out of my hand and make plays.” With three more passing touchdowns on Sunday, Mahomes has 29 touchdowns and seven interceptions on the year, a stat line that has him leading the MVP race.Eisen wanted to know which of Mahomes’ 29 touchdowns was his favorite, and as it turned out Rashad Fenton Jersey nfl draft , it was one of the two touchdown passes he threw to tight end Travis Kelce this week.“I just kind of put it up there and he made a great catch on it,” Mahomes said. “I told Kelc, he catches that for a touchdown and it looks good, but if he doesn’t make that play on it, that DB makes the play, it’s an interception, so it just shows you the small line that you have of being touchdowns or interceptions in this league.”Eisen later asked Mahomes if he thinks about the single-season touchdown record set by former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning at 55 back in 2013. At this pace, Mahomes will be in line to challenge the record.Mahomes answered with a bit of perspective.“I haven’t thought about it really at all,” he said. “I remember being at Texas Tech. I had a ton of stats where I put a ton of numbers up and we just didn’t win football games.”Mahomes actually finished college with a losing record at 13-16.“I really thought after I left there I was like, ‘I don’t care about the stats. I don’t care about any of that stuff. I just want to win,’ and I feel like that’s the best you can have is just winning games, and so for me, all the stats, they kind of come with the job I guess you would say and having this team around me, but whatever way we can find ways to win games, I feel like that’s the best you can have.”Eisen told Mahomes that no matter which Chiefs fan he talks to, he or she always brings up how excited they are about how he’s performing in Kansas City. Eisen wanted to know if he had felt that fame in Kansas City.“It’s crazy to me Rashad Fenton Jersey Womens ,” Mahomes said. “I might have my hood on at a gas station, and they just recognize me immediately when I hop out and I pump my gas, so that just shows you how much these fans are truly paying attention, how much this Chiefs Kingdom really believes and loves the Chiefs.”The two discuss Mahomes Showtime nickname, his earliest sports memory and more in a great interview by Eisen, which you can find here. The Rich Eisen Show is available on AUDIENCE Network -DIRECTV CH. 239. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — It has been a whirlwind first 11 weeks for the Kansas City Chiefs, filled with record-setting performances, high-scoring losses and the emergence of first-year starter Patrick Mahomes as one of the brightest young quarterbacks in the NFL.It’s also been an exhausting 11 weeks. And a pause is coming at a good time.The Chiefs headed home from Los Angeles on Monday night still feeling the sting of a 54-51 loss to the Rams in what was arguably the most entertaining regular-season game in years. They headed right into their bye week with an opportunity to refocus and get healthy for the stretch run.One that Mahomes and Co. still think will involve a deep playoff run.“It’s kind of like a reset,” Mahomes said, “get your body right and come back with that mentality that we’re going to win and we can still get home-field advantage, hopefully.”Indeed, the Chiefs (9-2) aren’t in much worse shape regarding the playoffs after the weekend than they were before it. The Chargers, their closest pursuers in the division, lost to the Broncos, while the Patriots were unable to make up much ground on the No. 1 seed because they were on a bye.After the week off, the Chiefs have two of their final five games against the moribund Raiders Rashad Fenton Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys , two others are at home against the Ravens and Chargers, and a trip to Seattle rounds out things.In other words, the Chiefs believe they’re well-positioned heading into December.“We’re going to heal up here and get ourselves ready to go,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.Wide receiver Sammy Watkins will no doubt use the week off to rest his ailing foot, which kept him out of practice last week and limited him to a couple early snaps against the Rams. Mitch Morse could be back at center after dealing with a concussion for several weeks, and a series of more minor injuries have affected nearly everybody on the roster.But the big question mark, at least in terms of health, revolved around Eric Berry.The Chiefs’ highly paid star safety, who missed most of last season with a torn Achilles tendon, returned to the practice field over the summer and appeared ready for the year. But his heel began to bother him early in training camp, and even though Reid has insisted that Berry is “day to day,” the injury has turned out to be more “month to month.”The five-time Pro Bowl pick still hasn’t been on the practice field, even though he was never put on injured reserve, and time is running out if Berry is going to play at all this season.“If he feels comfortable and the docs are good with it and he’s good with it, then we’ll start easing him in,” Reid said, when asked whether that could happen after the bye.The Chiefs certainly could have used their hard-hitting safety on Monday night.Jared Goff threw for 413 yards and four touchdowns without an interception Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys Stitched , and the Rams piled up more than 450 yards in a game that came down to the wire. Most importantly, the Chiefs couldn’t make a stop after taking the lead in the fourth quarter, allowing the Rams a go-ahead answer.“I think we showed a lot of heart,” Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston said. “We took several punches. Everybody’s got a game plan until you get hit in the mouth. We got hit in the mouth several times, but for us to keep fighting as a whole, I think that shows what kind of team we are.”Or what kind of team the Chiefs can ultimately become.Both of their losses have come on the road against teams that figure to be in the playoffs; they also lost a shootout in New England, when Tom Brady rallied the Patriots to a go-ahead field goal in the final seconds. And in both cases, the Chiefs would have walked away victors had their defense been able to make one more stop when it counted.So along with getting healthy during their bye week, the Chiefs will no doubt look at tweaking their defense, trying to figure out on the fly how they can improve down the stretch.Health is a good place start. But the Chiefs think there are other issues to iron out.“We all look at it that way,” Reid insisted, “every guy on this team will do that. That’s the way these guys are wired and that’s what’s going to make us a great football team down the stretch.”Yes, even the Chiefs’ record-setting offense can smooth over some things.The Chiefs remain one of the NFL’s most-penalized teams, and many of those flags have come on offense. Mahomes also threw three picks and lost two fumbles against the Rams, though that may have been an aberration — he’s been good at protecting the ball all season.There’s work to be done. And the Chiefs finally have a week off to do it.
