Another week, another victory for the Kansas City Chiefs.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes and company out-dueled the Baltimore Ravens at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday to maintain the Chiefs’ perfect record and their standing in the various “NFL power rankings” from around the web.
Kansas City once again landed at No. 2 in NFL.com’s rankings behind only the New England Patriots, who the Chiefs will see later this season in Week 14.
Here’s a portion of what analyst Dan Hanzus had to say about the Chiefs:
“Patrick Mahomes continues to dominate all comers. The Chiefs quarterback was brilliant again on Sunday, lighting up the Ravens for 374 yards and three touchdowns in a 33-28 win. Mahomes needed just 10 quarters to go over 1,000 yards passing for the season, a feat accomplished on a day in which the Chiefs were missing No. 1 wide receiver Tyreek Hill, left tackle Eric Fisher and running back Damien Williams. Even with the injuries, Mahomes has plenty to work with.”
Here’s what USA Today analyst Nate Davis had to say about Mahomes, who currently leads the NFL in passing yards (1,195), passing touchdowns (10) and passer rating (134.9).
“Through 20 career games, Patrick Mahomes is the greatest quarterback statistically in NFL history, and it's not even close. Includes 60 TD throws, 115.3 rating.”
That No. 2 ranking is pretty consistent across the board, making the Chiefs’ matchup with New England later this year all the more intriguing.
Here’s where the Chiefs landed in a few other power rankings from around the web:
Bleacher Report: No. 2
Sports Illustrated: No. 2
The Sporting News: No. 2
Kansas City returns to action this Sunday to take on the Detroit Lions.
