With Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple
Patrick Mahomes walked off the field at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday with another record on his resume and the Kansas City Chiefs another win toward earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs.He didn't have much chance to savor any of it.Mahomes quickly learned that the stepfather of his longtime girlfriend https://www.thesaintslockerroom.com/authentic-tre_quan-smith-jersey , Brittany Matthews, had died after a medical emergency during the game. Mahomes quickly skipped out on the postgame celebration and joined Matthews, who posted the sobering news on her social media accounts that evening."Today is a day I will never forget," she wrote in the caption of a photo. "Directly after this picture I sprinted to the front entrance to see my stepdad passed out! He did not come back from this and he was called to heaven today! I KNOW 100 (percent) he is so happy up there with his kids looking down on us, cheering loud that his Chiefs won today!"Mahomes is not expected to miss any preparation for Monday night's showdown with the Rams in Los Angeles, though Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he would be fine if it happens.The Chiefs were off Tuesday and Wednesday, giving Mahomes and his family time to cope."We're sorry to hear about what took place," Reid said. "Prayers and blessings are with the family. I talked to Patrick and they're doing well for the circumstances that took place. As they go through this mourning period our thoughts and prayers are with them."This season has already been a whirlwind for Mahomes, who was thrust into the starting job after the trade of Alex Smith to Washington and whose ability was justifiably questioned.He was a product of the Texas Tech offensive system. His big arm was tempered by problems with his accuracy. He had leadership abilities Drew Brees Jersey White , but could they translate from college to the NFL?Mahomes has answered all those questions every week.He threw six touchdown passes in a game. He led the Chiefs to tough road wins over the Chargers and Steelers, and went toe-to-toe with Tom Brady in New England. He has thrown so few interceptions that any questions about his decision-making have been left in September.With two more TD passes against the Cardinals, he broke the franchise single-season record of 30 that Hall of Fame quarterback Len Dawson set during the 1964 season 鈥?with six games to go."Pat is just a competitor," Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt said, "and a great guy and he's always trying to win. We needed all 31 of those touchdowns and he got them."Well, the Chiefs probably didn't need all of them.The Chiefs have scored 353 points through their first 10 games, the most in club history, and have been held to fewer than 30 only twice. Three times they've scored more than 40, including their 43-40 loss to the Patriots that remains the only blemish on their record.To put into perspective just how good Mahomes has been this season Marcus Davenport Jersey White , consider this: He threw for 249 yards against the Cardinals for a passer rating of 125.4, the eighth time this season he's been over 100.0 鈥?the third most in a single season in franchise history.Yet some people considered the end of his streak of eight consecutive 300-yard passing games to be a relative disappointment, as if he failed to live up to some otherworldly expectation.His teammates certainly weren't in that camp."That's something I'd do on 'Madden,'" wide receiver Tyreek Hill said of Mahomes' TD record. "For him to come in and do that, that's amazing. A lot of people doubted him, saying he wasn't going to do this or wasn't going to do that. He's shutting a lot of people up right now and I'm proud of him. He's just got to continue to move forward and stay humble. He'll be all right."He's been far better than that this season.Oddsmakers in Las Vegas have made the 23-year-old Mahomes the front-runner to win the league's MVP award, ahead of Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Rams running back Todd Gurley. And if he keeps going at his current rate, he will no doubt continue to rewrite the Chiefs record book.Maybe even the page that lists the Chiefs' rather unimpressive postseason history."Listen, he's had a heck of a year Womens Marcus Davenport Jersey ," Reid said. "Comes out every day bringing energy and he makes sure that he has his things in order. When he does that, and he's got a lot on his plate as far as responsibility goes to run that offense, and he takes care of that. He's in a position where he can make everyone better around him, and he's doing that. I'm proud of him." Saints have signed P.J.

Williams on one-year dealDerick E. Hingle-USA TODAY SportsThe New Orleans Saints are aiming to make one more run at a Super Bowl. But as an already supremely talented roster has learned over the past two years Tre'Quan Smith Jersey White , depth often determines who plays in February. And luck of course. In a move that screams to the “you can never have too many cornerbacks” mantra, the Saints added to their secondary with a very familiar face agreeing to terms with P.J. Willams on a one-year deal Tuesday worth $5 million.Contrary to FS1’s Colin Cowherd’s belief, the New Orleans Saints do not have “really weak corners”. While their defensive backs weren’t perfect last season and had various cringe worthy lapses, the group improved immensely throughout the season. And with talented slot cornerback Patrick Robinson returning after a season ending injury in 2018, it should only be better. Robinson’s replacement last season was the now five m-year pro in Williams. While he had been plagued by injury and inconsistency throughout his time in New Orleans, his struggles weren’t a secret.But there were several games when the potential that made Williams a third-round pick in 2015 flashed. And sometimes the light shined extremely bright.2018 however, gave him another chance to put it all on display. With another struggling defensive beginning to the season, Robinson on IR, and the Saints eventually welcoming Eli Apple aboard after a rough campaign from Ken Crawley —the pressure remained thick on Williams. And he responded in a manner in which a former Florida State cornerback should. With swagger and success.Now with a healthy returning Robinson Womens Alvin Kamara Jersey , Williams will join an even more crowded secondary in 2019. With Marshon Lattimore and Eli Apple expected to hold down the number one and two positions on the depth chart, Williams will be more than likely fighting it out for nickel and dime package snaps. But nothing is ever guaranteed in a New Orleans Saints secondary, so his opportunity to contribute could easily arrive in another manner unexpected. If history is to repeat itself however, he’d have it no other way.
