Announcing The Live Show And Recapping Preseason Week 2

Matthew Berry, Field Yates and Stephania Bell announce the details on their NYC live show (2:05) and breakdown the preseason Week 2 which was highlighted by Patrick Mahomes (4:05), Calvin Ridley (10:25) and Taywan Taylor (47:00).

We'll see in the coming weeks how much Orlando Scandrick still has to give, but at this point it's not a bad idea for the Chiefs to add a veteran cornerback. His signing gives the Chiefs a fourth veteran at corner, joining Kendall Fuller, Steven Nelson and David Amerson. Nelson has a concussion and Amerson has been less than solid during the first two preseason games.

While Patrick Mahomes' 69-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill was the highlight from the Chiefs' win over the Falcons on Friday night, Andy Reid said he was most impressed with Mahomes in the short and intermediate games. “I know he can sling the heck out of it down the field (but) he had a couple of nice touch throws there that are probably going to get overlooked. It showed his accuracy and ability to make the ones that people might consider a little tougher.'' One of the throws Reid referenced as a 14-yard sideline pass to tight end Travis Kelce on a third down.

Andy Reid on whether he likes having Mahomes big arm on tape for everyone to see: “I think people know he has a strong arm and he can do that . . . He has that capability. People know that.''

I asked Andy Reid today about the Patrick Mahomes TD pass that travelled about 70 yards in the air in Friday night's preseason win against the Falcons: “I hope it's not the last one,'' he said.

Undrafted rookie LB Ben Niemann continues to make a push to land a roster spot. Niemann returned an interception 26 yards for a touchdown to put the Chiefs ahead of the Falcons 28-14 in the fourth quarter. Niemann made a tackle on fourth-down for no gain in last week's game against Houston.

Patrick Mahomes just made a throw that not many QBs can make. He fired an over-the-top, 69-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill that travelled about 70 yards in the air. Plays like that are the reason the Chiefs are so excited about Mahomes. He was scheduled to play only in the first two quarters and at halftime he's 8-of-12 for 138 yards with a touchdown and an interception. The Chiefs trail the Falcons 14-10.

Patrick Mahomes' first interception of the preseason was a throw into double-coverage. On the previous possession, Mahomes had a touchdown pass wiped out because of a penalty. He might have had another one later in the drive when Sammy Watkins was open in the end zone. But Watkins didn't come back to the throw, allowing an opening for a defender to come in and break up the pass.

Starting conerback Steven Nelson is being evaluated for a concussion after taking a knee to the head trying to make a tackle on Atlanta's touchdown. He is replaced by David Amerson, who is being picked on by Falcons QB Matt Ryan. Amerson immediately allowed two completions, including one of 36 yards.

The Chiefs starting defense has allowed two touchdown drives in three tries in the preseason after yielding an opening-drive TD to the Falcons. The Chiefs allowed two 15-yard runs and a conversion on third-and-long on the drive. The Chiefs are playing without four defensive starters, including safety Eric Berry and inside linebackers Anthony Hitchens and Reggie Ragland.

Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes on WR Sammy Watkins, who didn't get a pass thrown his way in last week's preseason opener.

Andy Reid today on his level of concern with safety Eric Berry, who missed his fifth straight practice because of what the Chiefs are calling a sore heel.

Eric Berry is absent from practice again as the Chiefs begin their final training camp practice in the heavy rain in St. Joseph, Mo. This makes five straight practices that Berry has missed. The Chiefs have described his absences as due to a heel injury.

The ball at Chiefs training camp has gone more to one starting wide receiver, Tyreek Hill, than the other, Sammy Watkins. In the preseason opener last week, Hill caught two passes and Watkins none even though Watkins was in the game for nine snaps, compared to eight for Hill. But offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy said these weren't necessarily signs that Hill would catch more passes than Watkins during the regular season. It's more an indication, he said, that QB Patrick Mahomes and Watkins are still getting comfortable with one another. “Camp is all about finding your rhythm, making sure we get in sync together,'' Bieniemy said. “Part of that process is making sure we're spending the right amount of time with each other but also giving those two an opportunity to link up a little bit more. When it's all said and done, Sammy is doing a heck of a job. He's doing a great job. He's accepted the challenge because we're not just playing him at one pos. He's accepted the challenge of learning all three across the board. We want versatile football players.''

Again, no Eric Berry as the Chiefs begin practice. He also missed Sunday's practice with what the Chiefs called an injured heel. Berry had heel problems off and on before tearing an Achilles' tendon last year.
