Patrick Mahomes has not looked like himself this season.

That trend continued on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans after the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback threw his ninth interception of the season — which tied him for the league-lead with Jets rookie Zach Wilson — and sixth straight game in which he has thrown at least one interception, the longest such streak of his career.

Mahomes did not throw more than six interceptions in each of his last two seasons, although he did throw 12 in 2018 when he was league MVP.

He now has thrown 16 interceptions in his last 16 starts dating back to last season, a troubling trend for the star quarterback.

Some of Mahomes’ turnovers have come late in games at crucial moments, but this one came with the Chiefs already down 17-0 to the Tennessee Titans.

Last week, Mahomes’ mother complained on social media that interceptions off the hands of receivers should not count. This one was thrown into good coverage, however.

Mahomes also turned the ball over at the end of the first half on a fumble as he tried to pick up yards with his feet, leaving the Chiefs in a 27-0 halftime deficit, while he finished the half 5 of 9 for 41 yards.

His struggles also led to social media roasting him, which feels like it is quickly turning into a weekly occurrence.
