The Chiefs will be playing without quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the near future and tight end Travis Kelce joined PFT Live on Monday to discuss how the team will handle things without him in the lineup.

Kelce said that the team was able to keep their composure after Mahomes went down with a knee injury against the Broncos last Thursday night and explained what he thinks they need to do in order to continue maintaining it in the games to come.

“The biggest thing is making sure we don’t act uncharacteristically here going forward,” Kelce said. “Everyone just does their job and we keep trying to win football games.”

Kelce also credited the team’s confidence that backup quarterback Matt Moore “could come in and win game for us.” He shared what sparks that confidence.

“His experience,” Kelce said. “Believe it or not, at the quarterback position that means a lot. Especially in this offense where we’re asking the quarterback to do a lot of things.”

Kelce, Moore and the rest of the Chiefs will be back in action against the Packers on Sunday night.

  1. This is likely the downfall of the Chiefs season. Yes, they will still likely win a weak AFC West and get in the playoffs, but what will be the cost? Hopefully they don’t trot Mahomes out there and him blow his knee out for real ala RGIII, who has never been the same.

  2. Henne is far better than Moore and should start once he returns ! Even then the Cheif must find a suitable back up ! K.C in deep ?!

  3. Before Mahomes was injured it sure appeared that the NFL defenses had him figured out.
    Be interesting to see how the Chiefs play without him, but I don’t put much stock in them. Three weeks is best scenario, I predict more like five games, as much as the Chiefs want to rush him back I’m sure.

  4. Backup quarterbacks historically do very well against the Packers. The Packers have been known to create on-the-spot All-Pros out of backups.

    There are no guarantees in this game and the Packers won’t be taking it lightly.

  5. But Moore can’t throw underhanded across his body with his eyes closed like Mahommes !
