Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu missed last week’s season opener after a stint on the COVID-19 list. He was activated the day before the game, but head coach Andy Reid elected to give him a week just to make sure Mathieu had his wind back.

It didn’t take long for Mathieu to announce his presence.

On Baltimore’s third play from scrimmage, Mathieu picked off quarterback Lamar Jackson and returned it for a 34-yard touchdown to give Kansas City a 7-0 lead.

Jackson was looking for receiver Sammy Watkins on the right side. But Watkins slipped, which put the ball directly in line to Mathieu. The safety caught it and darted down the near sideline for the third pick six of his career.

  1. Don’t see KC winning it all this year with that terrible defense. Teams march right down the field on them. Offense is great but Mahomes has to score 40 points each week just to stay in it. Ridiculous to play with that pressure each week.

    do you even NFL bro?

  3. Anyone who says he’s a QB is delusional. He can’t throw the ball if it’s more than a screen pass and even then it’s dicey. He had guys wide open for touchdowns twice and overthrew them. If he doesn’t overthrow them he throws an INT. I wonder when Harbaugh is going to end the experiment and get a real QB back there.
