“There’s no weakness there,” Mahomes said of the Ravens.
“It’s going to take our best effort. Defense, offense, special teams, they do it all. It’s always a great challenge, and that stadium is going to be rocking, so we’re excited for the challenge.”
Don’t underestimate how influential overcoming the Bills could be in the Championship Game. Mahomes says the Chiefs have no reason to fear any stadium in the NFL.
“First off, this is a great environment, man. It really is,” Mahomes said.
“But we did hear it all week about playing a road game, and we’re here to prove a point and show that we can play anywhere.
“I love being at Arrowhead,” Mahomes added. “I love being at Arrowhead and playing in front of that crowd. But when you’re on the road, it’s you versus them. It’s you versus everybody in the stadium, and you have to come together as a team and let guys do that. You saw that in the game today.”
“Through three quarters offensively, we were moving the ball up and down the field,” Mahomes said. “But we got shut down in the fourth quarter. I went over to the defense, and I told them. I said, ‘Y’all shut it down, and we’ll win this football game. We’ll go to the AFC Championship Game.’ And they did.”
