Mahomes was four months old when The Lin   . Jersey
Status: OFFLINE


When the going gets tough Youth Terrance Smith Jersey , Tom Brady goes to Rob Gronkowski.The Patriots tight end had only three catches against the Chiefs on Sunday night, but he had big gains on each of the team's final two drives to help New England beat previously undefeated Kansas City 43-40.Gronkowski had a 42-yard catch and run to start a drive with under four minutes left that helped set up a Stephen Gostkowski field goal. Then, after Patrick Mahomes connected with Tyreek Hill on a 75-yard touchdown, Brady found the big tight end for 39 yards to the Kansas City 9.Gostkowski ended it with a 28-yard chip shot."We kept fighting. We stayed strong," Gronkowski said Monday. "It was a great night, a great football game."A five-time Super Bowl champion and three-time NFL MVP, Brady has had no trouble finding receivers in his 18-year career. But Gronkowski is one of his favorites, including 76 TD passes from the Patriots quarterback 鈥?nearly twice as many as the next most prolific Brady target."He made a big play. He's been making a lot of those his career," Brady said. "I'll keep throwing to him in the biggest moments."Gronkowski had one catch in the first quarter and then wasn't targeted again until the fourth as the Chiefs double-covered him for much of the game. But on first and 10 from their own 21 with 3:50 to play http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-eric-murray-jersey , Brady hit Gronkowski for 42 yards to set up a 50-yard field goal that made it 40-33.After Mahomes and Hill tied it, Brady dropped back from the Chiefs 48 and saw his 6-foot-6 tight end running one-on-one with cornerback Josh Shaw. He lofted a long pass into Gronkowski's arms; it took Shaw another 15 yards to bring him down."It was a really good throw," said Patriots receiver Chris Hogan, who had catches of 42 and 19 yards on back-to-back plays during the Patriots' last touchdown drive. "I knew that with Rob being there, he had a really good chance at getting the ball. He ran a great route and set the offense up for a game-winning field goal."With three catches for 97 yards, Gronkowski finished the game with 500 career receptions 鈥?just the NFL's 15th tight end to reach the milestone. He did it in 108 games, the fourth-fastest in league history; he also hit the 7,500 yards receiving mark, the eighth tight end to do so."They just made plays when it came down to it. The quarterback is a damn good player. The tight end is a damn good player Ron Parker Jersey ," Chiefs cornerback Orlando Scandrick said. "Those guys have been with each other a long time and you can see it. You can see the non-verbal communication. They just made more plays than us tonight. I tip my hat to Tom Brady. I tip my hat to Rob Gronkowski. I tip my hat to Julian Edelman, the whole Patriots football team." Have you ever see a Hallmark channel movie? If not... congrats.They’re made-for-TV movies starring someone from a ‘90s sitcom — or, for younger generations, the girl from Fuller House with every romantic comedy trope you can imagine somehow crammed into 90 minutes. Photo by Frederick M. Brown/Getty ImagesFor example:a girl and guy meet at a coffee shop owned by one of them... or on a cruise ship... or a toy factory (seriously). Things are going good — too good. Then one of the characters is forced to face the pain of a past relationship. Fear creeps in, and the couple breaks off what was once a budding romance.Five minutes before another version of the exact same movie in a different setting is scheduled to come on, the conflicted soul sheds their pain — sometimes with a grand romantic gesture from their counterpart — and lives happily ever after with their soulmate Candace Cameron-Bure. Kansas City Chiefs fans have found their Candace Cameron-Bure. His name is Patrick Mahomes. On Saturday, they’ll be forced to confront the pain of past Indianapolis Colts games — all of which have been conveniently packaged with titles: The Lin Elliott Game. The No Punt Game. 38-10.The grand romantic gesture that would finally help Chiefs fans relinquish their pain would be for Mahomes and company to molly-whop the Colts on Saturday. Some say they won’t be able to get over their wounds until they are healed with a victory. But I’m here to tell you we can skip the drama from the Hallmark movies. It just doesn’t have to be like that.I was there for the Wild Card game against the Tennesee Titans last January. I felt the energy get sucked out of the building when Marcus Mariota threw a touchdown pass to himself... when Harrison Butker missed that field goal... when forward progress was, uh... “stopped.” We all said it — whether verbally, on Twitter Authentic Patrick Mahomes II Jersey , or in our heads: Here we go again.As Chiefs fans, we expect this. We’re used to this. But it’s a crutch. They make great jokes. It’s the saddest badge of honor in sports, but we seem to have some odd fondness for it that makes it easy to fall back on when things start going badly. No more.The fortunes of the franchise don’t need to change, because they already have. It happened on April 27, 2017 when the Chiefs traded into the top 10, finally breaking the cycle of relying on someone else’s quarterback to lead this team to the promised land.Now it’s time to break the cycle of fear that shows up at the turn of each new year. We don’t have to acknowledge it any more.Mahomes shattered Len Dawson’s single season touchdown pass mark in Week 11. He’s the second person in the history of the National Football League to throw 50 touchdowns and 5,000 yards in the same season. He exceeded the wildest expectations for his first year under center before Thanksgiving. He’s led this team to 12 wins and the number one seed in the AFC. He’s going to win the leagues highest individual honor: the MVP. Sadly, when the results of Saturday’s Wild Card game between Indianapolis and Houston came in, the nightmares of yesteryear made some people doubt. We’re still reliving the hurt. Yes Youth Reggie Ragland Jersey , most of the fear falls on the defensive side of the ball. It’s warranted. But it hasn’t stopped them in 75 percent of their games this year.But we can heal before the game starts. We can do that by acknowledging there are two distinct eras of Chiefs football: Before Mahomes (unfortunately — but perhaps appropriately— abbreviated BM) and After Mahomes.It’s time to leave The Lin Elliott Game, The No-Punt Game, 38-10 — not to mention the No Touchdown Game and the Forward Progress Game — where they belong: in the BM era.We’re now fully in the AM era.On Saturday, we aren’t coming in to Arrowhead with that BM baggage. We’re coming with expectations. We’re coming with belief. In the BM era, the Chiefs needed everything to go right for them to have a chance; both sides of the ball needed to be at their best. In the BM era, the team needed to win in spite of the limitations of their quarterback. But in the AM era, that is no longer true.The current Chiefs defense might’ve buried lesser quarterbacks, but Mahomes has delivered throughout. We need to come to Arrowhead on Saturday with the expectation that he’ll bring this team out of a jam when things don’t go right. Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty ImagesWe’re no longer contributing to the palpable fear that could easily overcome the stadium like it did last January... or the January before that... or basically every other January between Super Bowl IV and now. We’re coming with the energy of a fan base that knows they have the best player in football, and we’re not not going to let anything get in the way of that belief. Besides... what we’ve done before never worked anyway.We’re coming to Break. The. Cycle. We know the issues on defense. We know the history all too well. And in the AM era http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-cameron-erving-jersey , we don’t care. Mahomes was four months old when The Lin Elliott Game took place.He was eight years old when The No-Punt Game happened and still in high school when 38-10 happened. He had nothing to do with them. We’re embracing the opportunity he and the Chiefs have to exorcise the demons — all of them.Things could go wrong, but it’s not going to be because those with their butts in the seats are compounding the problem with nervous energy, because we’re cultivating a new environment in Arrowhead Stadium. It’s about time we start acting like the number one seed with the MVP.We’re throwing a party! We can jump straight to the end of the movie. The quarterback to heal all those wounds is already on the roster. It’s not a matter of if it happens. It’s a matter of when it happens. It might as well be Saturday. Expect it. Believe it — even when things aren’t going right. Because we’re coming to Break. The. Cycle.
