You may have missed it, but Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has already won the NFL MVP Award, the Offensive Player of the Year Award, and is the star of a new ESPN 30 for 30 on just how amazing Patrick Mahomes is.
Kidding, but two weeks into the NFL regular season, Mahomes is being treated as all that and a bag of chips.
Full disclosure, I like Mahomes. I also like 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, so Week 3 in Kansas City could be a game featuring two up and coming stars in a league who is needing an infusion of young QB blood.
These two may end up being the poster boys for just that.
The Chiefs who are 2-0, will play a 1-1 Niners team who I believe will end up the second best team in the NFC West. Garoppolo, who was skewered after a Week 1 loss to a very good Minnesota Vikings team, has a chance to quiet the critics with a solid game in KC.
The 49ers who look to be one of two teams not in a rebuild in the West, have two tough ones back to back in the Chiefs, and then next week at the Chargers. It’ll be a tall order for the Niners to finish September .500 or better.
