Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs limp to first loss of season

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Quarterback Patrick Mahomes needs some help, after all. The Kansas City Chiefs left the NFL’s reigning MVP with little assistance on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts and for the first time this season, Mahomes couldn’t deliver a victory.

The Chiefs failed to protect Mahomes well or try to take any meaningful pressure off him with the running game. Mahomes was left battered -- he left the field with a limp with the rest of the offense to make way for the punting unit late in the third quarter after his left ankle was stepped on by a teammate -- and the Chiefs had their lowest scoring game with Mahomes at quarterback in a 19-13 loss at Arrowhead Stadium.
