Jimmy Butler on NBA title hopes: ‘If you want to win, you have to go through a LeBron James-led team’
For as momentous and anticipated as a game can be three weeks into a season, that’s how large Monday night’s much-ballyhooed showdown was. Led by wunderkinds at quarterback who in their mere fives seasons of experiences seem already to be transcendent talents, the Chiefs and Ravens collided. And from the start, it was all Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. The reigning Super Bowl champions flexed their might with Mahomes captaining an offensive showcase in the opening half that led to a 34-20 victory. As Mahomes tallied five total touchdowns, Lamar Jackson struggled in the Ravens’ first loss and the Chiefs maintained their spot as the league’s best thus far.
