NFL Week 10: The Old Mahomes Is Back, Newton Shows Out On Return

Jonathan Grant | November 15th, 2021

It’s no secret that the Kansas City Chiefs- and quarterback Patrick Mahomes- have been struggling this season. Coming into Sunday Night Football, they were 5-4 and a myriad of questions was being asked about this team, including if Mahomes was the right man under center going forward. While it’s only on the back of one game, the evidence looks pretty clear after what we saw as they demolished the Oakland Raiders 41-14. The blowout saw Mahomes throw five touchdown passes while completing 35 of 50 passes for 406 yards. It was all Chiefs late in the going, as they scored the final 24 points of the game to put it on ice.


On top of giving them some much-needed momentum, it also put the Chiefs atop the incredibly tight AFC West race for now. Elsewhere, Cam Newton made his return to the Carolina Panthers with absolute aplomb as he helped his coast to a 34-10 victory over the Kyler Murray-less Arizona Cardinals in Glendale. Newton didn’t start and only had eight plays, but he scored on the first two of those. One was a two-yard run while the other was a two-yard pass. Both came early in the first quarter, and those set the tone for a downright dominant day. Other notable results included a 17-0 shutout of the Seattle Seahawks by the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers was back at QB and had 292 passing yards while AJ Dillon scored two touchdowns in the fourth to melt the Seahawks’ hopes. Russell Wilson, playing with a bum finger, was just 20-40 and was picked off twice in the outing. The Pack is now 8-2 following the result. Another game worth mentioning was the 16-16 tie between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Detroit Lions. Though the Lions will still be hunting for their first win, they will now know for sure they won’t go winless.
