Can the Chiefs overcome their two-game losing streak again?

Throughout Patrick Mahomes's career, it is unusual for the Chiefs to lose two games in a row. History shows they will not lose a third.

2021

In week two of the 2021 season, the 1-0 Chiefs traveled to take on the Lamar Jackson-led 0-1 Ravens on Sunday Night Football. The Chiefs and Ravens would go back and forth all night, with both offenses firing at will. Lamar Jackson scored a touchdown to take a 36-35 lead with three minutes left on the clock. This looked like a game where Patrick Mahomes would take the offense down the field and rip the hearts out of the Ravens, but a fumble from Clyde Edwards-Helaire would stop the game-winning drive sending the Chiefs home with a 36-35 loss.

In week three, the 1-1 Chiefs would host the 1-1 Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs would start the game with three straight drives ending in turnovers, including two fumbles and an interception. The Chargers would take advantage of the turnovers and take an early lead in the first half. The Chiefs would come out of halftime taking the lead, but the Chiefs' defense would not be able to stop the Chargers offense in the second half. With a 24-24 tie, the Chiefs would get the ball with a chance to win the game, but an untimely interception from Patrick Mahomes would stall the drive. The Chargers' drive for a win was aided by two separate fourth-down conversions converted due to defensive pass interference, allowing the Chargers to score a touchdown with 32 seconds remaining.

Patrick Mahomes would do his best to attempt to drive his team down the field, but drops by Tyreek Hill, and Byron Pringle led to the Chiefs falling to the Chargers 30-24. It is interesting looking back in time, because the same problems that are plaguing the Chiefs in 2023, have been issues in the past.

In Week 4, the 1-2 Chiefs would travel to the 1-2 Philadelphia Eagles. Both offenses could not be stopped, with both teams scoring points at will. The Chiefs' defense had a very hard day against the Eagles, but they did force the Eagles to settle for field goals, while the Eagles' defense did not have an answer for Patrick Mahomes and a Chiefs offense that would score only touchdowns. The Chiefd would leave Philly with a 42-30 victory.
