Chiefs lead 17-10 at halftime with Patrick Mahomes injured

AFC Divisional Playoffs - Jacksonville Jaguars v Kansas City Chiefs

A Patrick Mahomes injury would seem to be a disaster for the Chiefs, but so far they’ve withstood it.

Mahomes suffered an ankle injury late in the first quarter, but Kansas City still leads Jacksonville 17-10 at halftime.

Jaguars coach Doug Pederson noted at halftime that his team has experience with second-half comebacks.

“It’s right where we want to be, being down at half,” Pederson joked during the on-air interview on NBC.

A comeback will be a lot more feasible for the Jaguars if Chad Henne has to go the rest of the way for the Chiefs.

  1. Jax really blew opps by getting penalty & sack to be out of FG range. Then Kirk drops 50 yder. Can’t miss opps like that vs Chiefs. Henne s/b enough to win this gm.

  2. The more I watch the Mahomes injury the more it looks intentional. Same dude with the cheap shot on Henne too.

  3. I’ll tell you NFL doesn’t like to hide anything anymore like the completely obvious help they’re handing down

  4. Not complaining about the no call because I prefer 1995-2010 style of play but on Mahomes injury that was clear helmet to helmet contact. Could be argued as launching based on other calls this year.

  5. KC looks even more impressive considering how they are playing with Mahomes out. Their defense is better than people realize and their offense is better than people realize even without Mahomes. If they hold on and win and PM’s injury doesn’t prevent him from returning next week that’s a scary thought for their AFC opponent and potential Super-Bowl opponent. Was hoping the 49ers finally win the Big one again, but KC is as good as any team. Would hate to see them lose to KC again.

    KC version of tb6

  7. Chiefs should put Henne back in if they want to win, Mahomes looking extremely average with no legs

  8. Jax passes so predictable. 3 yd sidelines – KC sitting on these routes. Look like Matt Canada’s offense in Pitt.
