The Chiefs’ win over the Ravens on Monday did well to showcase the expanding brilliance of Patrick Mahomes, but it subtly reminded us Andy Reid might just be entering his prime.
When the Chiefs reached Baltimore’s 5-yard line, the first-round running back exited the field and was replaced by the team’s 5-9 burner of a wide receiver in the backfield. Patrick Mahomes took the snap and rolled right toward Tyreek Hill and the Ravens followed, collectively drifting toward the play’s apparent focal point like metal shavings near a magnet.
Then Mahomes stopped and underhanded a football to fullback Anthony Sherman, who, after a brief chip block, was essentially standing stationary in the right upback position where he’d started the play. All of Baltimore had overcommitted, and Sherman, the least likely of the play’s five eligible wide receivers, walked into the end zone.
