Patrick Mahomes finally experienced

some adversity on Monday night in Denver Denver Broncos T-Shirt , when the offense had grown stagnant and the Chiefs trailed by 10 points with about 12 minutes to go.He answered with a dramatic fourth-quarter comeback.There was the grinding, 12-play, 75-yard drive that Mahomes capped with a short touchdown toss to Travis Kelce to give Kansas City a chance.Then, there was the audacious left-handed throw while Von Miller was bearing down on him during the go-ahead drive, which Kareem Hunt capped with a touchdown run in the final minutes to give the Chiefs a dramatic 27-23 victory.”I didn’t think at all. I was just kind of scrambling to my left, I felt Von on my back and I knew I couldn’t throw it with my right hand,” Mahomes said. “I knew we needed a first down, so I kind of shot-putted it to Tyreek (Hill), he got the first down and made a great play.”Sure, his wide receiver made a great play.But Mahomes had made a spectacular one.It was the first time he’d truly faced adversity — the Chiefs had jumped out to early leads in each of their first three games, giving Mahomes a certain level of comfort. And while he rallied them to victory in his Week 17 start in Denver a year ago, there was nothing on the line that day.This was different in several ways.The Chiefs’ dynamic offense had been held in check all night, and wide receiver Sammy Watkins had gone down with a hamstring injury, depriving Mahomes of one of his top options.Throw in the tough road environment and the fact that the Broncos could have forged a tie atop the AFC West with a victory Denver Broncos Hats , and that’s some heady stuff for Mahomes to deal with.”He’s a confident kid. He was confident before that,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He’s not going to get overconfident from it. I think it tells you, it tells everyone: You’re within striking distance you have the opportunity to make plays. The guys around him made plays too. This wasn’t just Patrick.”But it was Mahomes who was getting most of the credit Tuesday for his late-game heroics.”He’s pretty fast. He’ll run all day, buy time and especially to the right, deep,” Miller marveled after the game. “I’m talking like, 20 yards deep, and then he’ll throw the ball 40 yards. He’s a great quarterback. He did a great job tonight.”Mahomes’ ability to extend plays while constantly looking downfield may have been the biggest reason the Chiefs managed to rally late.In fact, the length of time he made Denver’s defensive backs work in coverage left cornerback Chris Harris Jr. downright exhausted.”He made us cover for a long time. I had to go inside and get an IV. I had to get two IVs and I was just done,” Harris said. “Just playing those extra times, he made us scramble in coverage the whole game. We couldn’t sack this man. He’s a hell of a player. He’s a hell of a quarterback. He made plays with his feet and I can’t wait to play him again.”Well, the Jaguars’ stingy defense gets that treat next when it visits Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.Already, the Chiefs could be facing some adversity when they play just their second home game this season. Kelce got banged up against Denver, and Watkins and pass rusher Dee Ford (groin) did not return to the game after leaving with injuries.All three of them have been crucial to the Chiefs’ early season success.”We just keep on battling Denver Broncos Hoodie , man. NFL football, there’s going to be a lot of games that come down to the end,” cornerback Kendall Fuller said. “So each drive, you’ve got to be locked in. Each play, locked in. You’ve just go to keep on finishing.”Notes: Reid said during a conference call Tuesday he’s confident in Demarcus Robinson filling in should Watkins be unavailable this week. Robinson had two catches for 31 yards against Denver. “D-Rob had a couple nice catches and actually had a chance for another, a touchdown,” Reid said. The Denver Broncos have decided to move on from quarterback Chad Kelly after the second-year player was found incoherent breaking and entering into a family home. He was arrested in the early Tuesday morning hours and charged with first-degree criminal trespassing and likely has a lengthy court battle ahead of him to avoid the felony charge.“This was a decision that we made as an organization,” Elway said on Wednesday. “After reviewing all the information and in talking with Vance (Joseph) and Joe (Ellis), we agreed that releasing Chad was the right thing to do. Even though Chad’s no longer part of our team, we’ve offered to help him however we can and are supportive of him in every possible way.”Kelly, who was attending Von Miller’s annual Halloween Party, appeared in court on Tuesday and refused to answer media inquiries. Additional reports have surfaced noting that Kelly was actually escorted out of the party after having a physical altercation with a guest. The incident involved Kelly forcing his way into a home and sitting on a couch next to a woman hold a baby before being chased out by the male occupant of the home with a vacuum cleaner part. With the felony charge and the homeowner seeking to press charges, the Broncos likely did the right thing to move on from Kelly as he takes on his legal troubles.
