If Patrick Mahomes’ mom has her way, the Tennessee Titans might have one less thing to worry about in Week 10.
For all his greatness through the air, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is a great athlete and his ability to run with the football must be accounted for. But in Week 10, that’s one thing the Tennessee Titans might not have to worry about.
The Sunday matchup in Nashville is Mahomes’ first game back after dislocating his kneecap in Week 7 and sitting out the last two games. A lot of talk has been about if Mahomes will be hesitant to run with the ball in order to avoid re-injury.
For Chiefs fans, they hope he remains a bit more conservative in order to avoid getting hit while on the run. For Titans fans, they’re hoping Mahomes stays in the pocket because running with the football is just another way he can beat their team.
Well, thanks to Mahomes’ mom, Randi, the Chiefs quarterback is forbidden from running the football, as she clearly stated on Twitter on Saturday.
Mahomes’ mom might be the best defender on the field for the Titans on Sunday!
Head coach Andy Reid better not have any designed runs lined up, or else he might be in trouble too. Hell hath no fury like a mother scorned!
If Mahomes actually listens to his mom, the Titans will have one less thing to worry about, and that’s definitely a good thing. After all, this Chiefs team has enough ways to beat Tennessee, and Mahomes taking off with the ball only makes things more difficult.
If Mahomes doesn’t listen, it might be no TV for a week.
Mom also had some fun with a popular meme that has been going around lately, although it was edited with her and her son’s faces to fit this particular situation.
We’ll see just how much Mahomes listens to his mom when the Titans and Chiefs kickoff on Sunday at 12:00 p.m. CST. Tennessee will be without a slew of important defensive players, which will only make stopping the Chiefs’ high-powered offense even harder.
