Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes insists he doesn’t feel the urge to score on every possesion because of the Chiefs’ struggles on the defensive side of the ball.
Statistically, the Chiefs are the worst defensive team in the NFL as they surrender 32.6 points per game this season.
Mahomes has committed six turnovers over the last three games and looked that at times Mahomes was forcing throws just to try to make something happen.
“Not at all,” Mahomes said Wednesday as the Chiefs began preparations for Sunday’s game at Washington. “We try to score every single time we touch the football. That’s how it’s been my entire career here, and that was the precedent that was set before I even started here.
“That’s kind of how I have my mindset going into every single game is that, when we get an opportunity to go out there and have success and be successful, we have to capitalize on that. It has nothing to do with whatever is happening on the other side of the ball. It’s just our job as an offense on this team.”
