Patrick Mahomes faces new challenges for the 2022 season
On the field, the Kansas CIty Chief should enjoy continued success as one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL. Last season, they were denied a Super Bowl appearance via an overtime loss at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals.
For the 2022 NFL season, he will face several new challenges. Mainly surrounding the loss of star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, who now plays for the Miami Dolphins.
After Hill was traded to the Dolphins, the Chiefs subsequently signed wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdez-Scantling. Other than a fantastic fictional law firm name, the Mahomes, Smith-Schuster, and Valdez-Scantling partnership will need to gel quickly this year if the Chiefs hope to stay atop the AFC West.
Both the Denver Broncos and the Las Vegas Raiders strengthened this offseason and the Los Angeles Chargers look a real threat. The Chiefs will have their work cut out for them when the season kicks off in September this year.
