Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is determined to play in Sunday’s AFC West rivalry game against the Denver Broncos, despite being under the weather. The Chiefs announced that Mahomes is dealing with an illness but assured fans that he has not been designated as injured and his status for the game is not in jeopardy. Mahomes has been battling flu symptoms and received IV fluids on Saturday to ensure he is able to take the field.
The Chiefs remain confident that Mahomes’ illness will not significantly impact his performance. However, the weather in Denver is expected to be harsh, with several inches of snow forecasted. This poses an additional challenge for Mahomes, who is dealing with his illness. Nevertheless, Mahomes has always displayed a resilient attitude and is determined to play regardless of any physical setbacks.
Mahomes has been instrumental in leading the Chiefs to a 6-1 record this season. He aims to continue their success against the Broncos, whom they defeated earlier in the year. In the last game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Mahomes delivered a remarkable performance, throwing for 424 yards with four touchdowns and just one interception. So far this season, Mahomes has already accumulated 2,017 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, and a completion rate of 69.5%.
It remains to be seen how the expected snowfall will impact the game, particularly regarding the passing game for both Mahomes and his counterpart, Russell Wilson. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET. Despite the challenges, Mahomes is eager to lead his team to victory once again.
