Mahomes completed 24 of 30 passes for 278 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 42-30 win over the Eagles. He added 26 yards on five rushing attempts.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes capped Kansas City's first possession with a shovel pass to Clyde Edwards-Helaire for a one-yard touchdown, then found Tyreek Hill for a six-yard score to take a 14-10 lead before adding a two-yard pass to Jody Fortson for his third touchdown pass in as many first-half possessions. His hot streak was briefly interrupted by an interception on the first drive of the second half, but Mahomes bounced back with touchdowns of 12 and 44 yards to Hill as the Chiefs pulled away in the fourth quarter. Mahomes boasts an impressive 14:4 TD:INT heading into a high-profile Week 5 rematch of last season's AFC Championship Game against the Bills.

Mahomes completed 27 of 44 passes for 260 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions in the Chiefs' 30-24 loss to the Chargers on Sunday. He also rushed four times for 45 yards.
EDGE Analysis
Kansas City has suffered a few Arrowhead Stadium losses during Mahomes' tenure as starting quarterback, and this latest one can be pinned partly on his shoulders. The star quarterback threw a particularly ill-timed interception off his back foot with the game knotted at 24-24 and 1:55 remaining, leading to what eventually would be the Chargers' game-winning touchdown. Mahomes' other pick came in the first quarter off a deflected pass and on an acrobatic snag by rookie Asante Samuel, while his three scores went into the hands of the unlikely trio of Jody Fortson, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Mecole Hardman. Mahomes and the Chiefs now will look to shake off a rare second consecutive loss and even their record in a road battle versus the Eagles in Week 4.

Mahomes completed 24 of 31 pass attempts for 343 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's 36-35 loss to the Ravens.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes carved up the Ravens' secondary -- as he is known to do on occasion -- while spreading the ball around to nine different receivers. He did have an ill-advised interception where he tried making one of his signature throws while being tackled to the ground, but there was no magic there this time around. While his team ended up falling just short of victory, Mahomes gaudy stat line will surely boost his fantasy manager's scores heading into the final game of Week 2. The young phenom could be involved in his third consecutive shootout in a divisional matchup against Justin Herbert and the Chargers on Sunday.

Mahomes completed 27 of 36 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns while adding 18 rushing yards and a TD on five carries in Sunday's 33-29 win over the Browns.
EDGE Analysis
The 25-year-old superstar has never lost in September in his career, but that streak looked to be in jeopardy when Cleveland took a 22-10 lead into halftime. However, Mahomes quickly got to work on the comeback after intermission, and he hit Tyreek Hill for a 75-yard TD on a prototypical one-play drive midway through the fourth quarter. Mahomes will face another tough defense in Baltimore in Week 2, but he's proven he can put up big numbers against any opponent.

Mahomes completed eight of nine passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns in Friday night's 28-25 preseason win over the Vikings.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes was his spectacular self in limited action. He connected with Travis Kelce for 28 yards on his first throw of the night, then hit Tyreek Hill for a 35-yard touchdown on his next attempt. The Super Bowl LIV MVP followed that by finding Blake Bell for a five-yard score on his second and final drive, ending his preseason on a high note. After Friday's brief tune-up, Mahomes will now turn his attention toward the regular season, beginning with Week 1's matchup against the Browns.

Mahomes completed 10 of 18 passes for 78 yards with no touchdowns and one interception in the Chiefs' 17-10 preseason win over the Cardinals on Friday night. He also rushed twice for 10 yards.
EDGE Analysis
There had been talk of Mahomes playing into the second quarter, and that's exactly what came to fruition. The star signal-caller's last pass ended up in the hands of the Cardinals' Byron Murphy with 8:07 remaining in the first half, and the Chiefs ultimately produced just three points while Mahomes was in the game. Nevertheless, the night brought a solid workload for Mahomes, who may well sit out next Friday night's preseason finale versus the Vikings and take his next snap in a Week 1 showdown against the Browns.

Coach Andy Reid said Mahomes and other starters will play "a half, somewhere there about" in Friday's preseason game against Arizona, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes played one drive in the preseason opener against San Francisco, completing one of two passes for four yards. He'll see more work in the second exhibition, though it is possible Reid pulls his superstars before many of the other starters.

Mahomes completed one of two passes for four yards in Saturday's 19-16 preseason win over the 49ers.
EDGE Analysis
Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce for a four-yard gain on the first drive, but his second and final pass of the night was dropped by Mecole Hardman. Most importantly, Mahomes and the rest of the starters left the exhibition game healthy. He likely won't play much more this preseason as he gears up for his fourth year as the Chiefs' starting quarterback. Last season, the Texas Tech product completed 66 percent of his passes for 4,740 yards, 38 touchdowns and six interceptions, and he added 308 yards and two scores on the ground.

Coach Andy Reid suggested Mahomes and other starters will play the first quarter in Saturday's preseason opener against San Francisco, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Reid didn't actually mention Mahomes by name, so it's possible the QB could follow a different plan than other starters, though Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce would also figure to make early exits if Mahomes were to do so. In any case, Reid's general plan is to play starters in the first quarter, second-stringers in the second quarter, third-stringers in the third quarter and everyone else in the fourth.

Mahomes doesn't anticipate having any restrictions at training camp, as his left foot is fully recovered from February surgery, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
This was expected after Mahomes participated in spring practices. The toe/foot that bothered him at the end of last season is no longer an issue, nor is the rash of injuries that plagued Kansas City's offensive line during the Super Bowl. The team lost longtime starting tackles Eric Fisher and Mitchell Schwartz in the offseason, but then made up for it by signing LG Joe Thuney and trading for LT Orlando Brown. The Chiefs even get Laurent Duvernay-Tardif back from the COVID-19 list, so when all is said and done, their O-line could be better than it was last year. At the skill positions, their offense looks much the same as 2020, minus injury-prone wideout Sammy Watkins (now with the Ravens). As always, Mahomes is set up for success.
