(610 Sports) – With a 36-10 trouncing of the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, coupled with a Chargers 29-41 loss to the Texans, the Kansas City Chiefs locked up their sixth straight AFC West division title.
For Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes, being a division champ is all he's known since entering the league in 2017, but don't think he's taking it for granted, as this one means as much, if not more than the rest. He shared why, with Carrington Harrison of 610 Sports' The Drive, during a weekly segment that Mahomes has on the show.
"Obviously, this year is as special as any because of the way we started," said Mahomes. Alluding to a 3-4 start for the team, during which they were handily beaten at home by the Buffalo Bills and on the road by the Tennessee Titans.
Since that 3-4 start, the team has rallied to win 8 straight games, fueled by a defense that has held each of the last 5 opponents at Arrowhead Stadium under 10 points.
"Winning the AFC West isn't something you can just kind of roll out of bed and do," said Mahomes. "The teams in our division are great football teams and you see that all of them have a chance at making the playoffs, still."
