On Saturday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs began their Divisional Round showdown against Jacksonville in dominant fashion.
Kansas City stopped the Jaguars on a three-and-out before receiving the ball for the first time. Patrick Mahomes and company went right down the field where he connected with star tight end Travis Kelce on the touchdown.
Jacksonville answered right back with a touchdown pass from Trevor Lawrence to wide receiver Christian Kirk. On the ensuing possession, something unfortunate happened.
Mahomes went down awkwardly on one tackle and appeared to be suffering a potentially serious knee injury. He went to the sidelines for a while before entering the game.
As the first quarter drew to a close, Mahomes ran to the sidelines to get his right ankle taped. He came out for the second quarter, but looks to be seriously faltering right now.
If Mahomes can’t finish this game, it will be a devastating blow to the Chiefs’ offense.
