One of the most admirable aspects of Mahomes’ game is his desire to set high standards. He lambasted himself after one game against the Rams because he threw an interception that kept the other team in the game. Another quarterback may have shrugged but Mahomes refused to back down from his mistake.
“Especially in the red zone, we got to execute at a higher level,” Mahomes said in his postgame press conference. “I got to execute at a higher level, and I got to take out like the one dumb play I make every game it seems like so if I can take that out, I think we’ll be alright (via NBC Sports).”
