BALTIMORE – It’s not just that Patrick Mahoms Thrown for a ton of yards and four touchdowns. How he did it was very impressive.
Mahoms joked, danced and jumped out of his pocket. Sometimes he backed down and threw a pinpoint downfield. He threw shovel passes and sidetracked it.
The general thing is that for every work he did for the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, he beat the Baltimore Ravens 34-20 on Monday night.
Mahoms gave an excellent performance while giving an outstanding performance Lamar Jackson, 0-3 against the Chiefs as a regular-season starting quarterback and 21-1 against the rest of the NFL.
With Mahoms on the way, the Chiefs (3-0) ended the Ravens’ 14-game regular-season winning streak, while extending their own run to 12 games (including playoffs). Mahoms scored 31 off 385 yards for 42 runs and averaged 6.5 yards in his four run attempts.
“They don’t give that person half a billion dollars for no reason,” Ravens defensive tackle said Kalis Campbell Said. “He played game after game. You have to respect him.”
Mahomes, who signed on for a 10-year, $ 503 million extension in July, gave the chiefs their monetary value Monday night, surgically tearing up the Baltimore defense and allowing just two touchdowns in the first two games.
“You should give credit to Pat for leading the charge. He came to great heights,” said Kansas City coach Andy Reid.
Mahoms was not intercepted and escaped unscathed. The Chiefs took a 27-10 lead at halftime and beat Baltimore (2-1) for the third year in a row.
“The plays we ran, we got into the right conditions,” Mahoms said. “I thought the guys on those plays were executed on a very high level.”
In a duel between Mahoms, the 2018 NFL MVP and the player who won that honor last year, Jackson did not match the man who won the Super Bowl MVP trophy at the start of the res.
Jackson completed 15 of 28 passes for 97 yards and ran 83 yards, 30 of which were in a carry on the Ravens early possession. It was almost inaccurate against Mahoms, whose performance Jackson described in one word: “Outstanding.”
The Chiefs achieved touchdowns on their first two assets – one on the Mahoms run, the other on the shovel pass Anthony Sherman – For a 13-3 lead. After that second score, the Ravens rookie Devin Duvernay Fielded the kickoff and fell to the right for a 93-yard touchdown.
Kansas City followed with three and out, but Baltimore did not hold the Mahoms for long. After he got the ball back, Mahoms completed 29 and 18 yard passes before hitting Tyric Hill For a 20-yard score to overcome a 73-yard drive.
Touchdown pass 49 yards from Mahoms McCall Hardman Raise the chiefs to 17 for half the time. Last year, Jackson was far behind during the break in the NFL game, with the Chiefs leading 23-6.
Of these, Kansas City pumped the brakes in the second half before Baltimore closed at 27-20. Mahoms is the highest paid player in the league and has shown why he is the best quarterback in the NFL.
During the 13-play, 75-yard drive, Mahoms, who produced the game-cleaning score, changed the third and fifth with an 18-yard pass and ran 12 yards on the third and 10th. He flipped the 12-yard pass sideways Sami Watkins To set the first and target at 2, the place where Mahoms threw the touchdown pass to the admirable tackle Eric Fisher 8:14 left.
The Ravens have 250 people in the seats, including players, coaches and front office staff with immediate family members. These are scattered across many sections behind the Baltimore sideline.
They are much more animated than the cardboard cutouts of the people behind each end zone.

All the chiefs stood aside during the national anthem. The Ravens, on the other hand, offered a mixed bag of protests to focus on social injustice: some, including Jackson, were on their knees, some standing, others sitting on a bench.
