Could snow slow down Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs on Sunday in Denver?
The NFL will have its first snow game of the season on Sunday, when the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos battle it out at Mile High City. In Denver, snow and freezing temperatures are forecast throughout the day, and teams have no choice but to play through.
The 5-1 Chiefs and quarterback Patrick Mahomes have played their part this season, but could the snow and cold put an end to that? Could that end their winning streak in nine games against the Broncos?
Fortunately, there has been a snowy history between these two teams lately that could give us an idea of what Sunday's game has in store for us.
Snow game II: The snowfall
The Chiefs and Broncos have been here before. They faced each other in the Kansas City snow in Week 15 of the 2019 season, and the Chiefs plowed the Broncos 23-3. Mahomes had a great day in several ways. He went with 340 yards and two touchdowns 27 against 34 and was thrilled about the snow from start to finish. No seriously. He was like a kid coming home from school on a snowy day.
Other players took part. Travis Kelce had 11 receptions for 142 yards and Tyreek Hill had six catches and scored both Chiefs touchdowns. The Chiefs kept the Broncos on a single field goal in the second quarter.
As Mahomes watched his team dominate as he sat on the sidelines in one of those famously attractive cold weather quarterback capes, he declared his love for snow games.
"I think I'm a snow game guy," said Mahomes. "I don't know why, but I kind of like it. Everything is just super slow and I'm out here right now, right in my pocket. Just like, boop, bloop!"
The Broncos may be on their home turf on Sunday, but the Chiefs have a snow-loving quarterback and that's hard to beat.
