The Re-Up: The 2018 season already reminds me of a movie; no, a Netflix series

Patrick Mahomes is a natural-born star who is making sure to involve his talented supporting cast. It’s our Monday morning column, The Re-Up. In this column, I’ll write about some deeper thought I had about the last game and finish with some fun stuff to ponder at the article’s end. Check out last week’s column here. Photo by David Eulitt/ If you can manage it, travel back in time with me for a second. We don’t have to go too far back—only a month. Let’s imagine it’s August 25, 2018.

How many Chiefs will catch touchdown passes from Patrick Mahomes in 2018?

The NFL record is 13 in a single season. Can Mahomes beat this record, too? Whatever else is true, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has stirred the imaginations of those who look for unusual NFL records that could be broken. Here’s another one to examine — this one courtesy of Good Morning Football host Peter Schrager. Nine different @Chiefs players have caught touchdown passes through three games.

Chiefs open as road favorites against Broncos

Chiefs open as road favorites against Broncos

The oddsmakers like the Chiefs after their 3-0 start Oddsmakers opened the Kansas City Chiefs as 4.5-point favorites in the upcoming Monday night game against the Denver Broncos. That also happens to be exactly the point spread for the game shown by FiveThirtyEight.com’s Elo predictions model, too. But unlike the FiveThirtyEight point spread, the betting line will change as the week progresses, depending on how much money comes in for each team. So far, the line has dropped. It’s down to 4 points in some sportsbooks — and is as low as 3.5 in others — suggesting that the betting...

Dee Ford scheduled for MRI on Monday

Ford injured his groin in Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Dee Ford has looked as good as he has in a long time this season, wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines and registering two sacks in three games in the process. So of course he came out of the game against the San Francisco 49ers with an injury. “Dee Ford is really the only one,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said after the team’s 38-27 win. “He strained his groin, so we will just see how he does in the next day or so. He will have an MRI [Monday] and we will go from...

Five hot takes from Chiefs-49ers

Five hot takes from Chiefs-49ers

Five hot takes from Sunday’s victory in the home opener 1. Dinking and dunking Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports On the opening drive of Sunday’s game, Patrick Mahomes resembled Alex Smith more than himself. Last week, I suggested that the Chiefs might want to consider running the ball a bit more or try to keep Mahomes from swinging for the fences quite so often. This idea was treated with derision by a number of commenters — and I understand their point of view. But here we are a week later, and Andy Reid’s famous scripted plays to begin the game didn’t include...

Patrick Mahomes breaks three-game touchdown record

Another week, another touchdown record. Last week, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes broke the NFL’s touchdown record for the first two games of the season by getting to 10 scores. In order to tie the record for three games owned by Peyton Manning (12 in 2013), Mahomes would need two touchdowns against the San Francisco 49ers. He got three (13) and now stands alone.

Now our focus turns towards the 49ers, and below are five topics which could alter the outcome of the game. 1. 49ers sacks allowed We’ll start our analysis with a nice little...
