Patrick Mahomes has been so good this season it’s easy to forget he is still learning his way around the NFL.He was handed another lesson on Sunday night.Mahomes passed for 352 yards and four touchdowns http://www.authenticskansascit…..chiefs.com , but he also threw two first-half interceptions that proved to be quite costly when the Kansas City Chiefs lost 43-40 to the New England Patriots on Stephen Gostkowski’s 28-yard field goal as time expired.The 23-year-old Mahomes was the toast of the NFL coming into the weekend, with Kansas City averaging 35 points during its 5-0 start. The 10th overall pick in the 2017 draft arrived in New England with 14 touchdown passes and just two interceptions.One more victory, and Mahomes would become just the sixth quarterback since 1970 to win each of his first seven starts.It just didn’t work out, not with Tom Brady directing New England’s prolific attack.The Chiefs trailed 24-9 at halftime after Mahomes was picked off twice, including Duron Harmon’s first interception of the season in the end zone for a touchback in the final seconds of the second quarter.”Yeah, I missed some throws,” Mahomes said. “That happens in this league but whenever you’re playing good football teams, you can’t miss those throws.”Mahomes returned to form in the second half, nearly rallying the Chiefs to a dramatic victory. He found Tyreek Hill for a 1-yard TD pass that made it 33-30 Kansas City with 8:38 left. With the Chiefs trailing 40-33, he connected with Hill again for a 75-yard score that tied the game with just over three minutes remaining.Tight end Travis Kelce said Mahomes was more composed in the second half.”It’s a big game, going up against arguably the greatest of all time,” he said. “I know (Mahomes has) got a lot of respect for (Brady). I know this team has a lot of respect for (Brady), and it being a Sunday night game, we knew it was going to be a special one and sure enough the emotions and excitement got a little ahead of us, but we just settled down. Saw him in the second half be more like himself and have a little fun out there.”Brady noticed, too.”He made some big (plays). He made a lot of big ones Kansas City Chiefs T-Shirt ,” Brady said. “The one at the end to Tyreek was a great throw, and he had some other great throws.”After the tying TD, Brady used a 16-yard pass to James White and a 39-yard completion to Rob Gronkowski to get New England into field-goal range.Mahomes was 23 for 36 in his franchise-record fifth straight game with 300 or more yards. But his second-half rebound wasn’t enough to extend Kansas City’s win streak.”He did settle down. He did a nice job,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “But again, the objective is to actually win the game and we didn’t do that. At the same time, when you have one like this, you go back and you learn from it.” Blake Bortles was largely ineffective despite a career-high 430 yards passing against Kansas City. His offensive line was the biggest problem.The Jacksonville Jaguars failed to give Bortles enough time or protection in a 30-14 loss at the Chiefs on Sunday. Bortles was sacked five times, fumbling once, and hurried way more often.According to Pro Football Focus, Jacksonville’s line allowed 24 total quarterback pressures 鈥?seven more than any other NFL team in Week 5.”We take an immense amount of pride in our work,” backup left tackle Josh Walker said Monday. “That’s going to be the goal of our group this week: to be more determined to be better and do a better job in protecting Blake. We’ve got to keep him clean. That’s our job and that’s what we’re going to do.”We’re fine. We’re not worried about things. We’re going to fix things.”The Jaguars (3-2) might have to make some roster changes to find help.Left tackle Josh Wells has a groin injury that could cause him to miss Sunday’s game at Dallas (2-3), and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed to injured reserve and will have core muscle surgery.Coach Doug Marrone said Wells is “week to week” and Seferian-Jenkins is expected to return later in the year.Running back Corey Grant (foot) also is done for the season, joining Leonard Fournette on the sideline. Fournette is expected to miss his fourth game of the season because of a sprained right hamstring.The Jaguars are planning to sign a running back and likely will do the same at left tackle.”When you add and you’re missing some key players, you have to play to the strengths of what they can do,” Marrone said. “It is a challenge for us, but there are teams that go through those same challenges. It’s going to be on us as coaches to do a good job of putting in the right plays Kansas City Chiefs Hats , going to the right people and being able to go and execute it.”The O-line was Jacksonville’s weak link last year, failing to create holes for Fournette in the second half of the season.The Jags thought signing All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell to a five-year, $66.5 million contract in free agency would solidify the front. But Norwell has been average, at best, while playing alongside three different left tackles: Cam Robinson, Wells and Walker. Robinson is out for the season with a knee injury.”We need to trust in each other,” Wells said. “The expectation level is still going to remain high. We need to put our head down and go back to work.”The Jaguars essentially abandoned the running game after falling behind 20-0 late in the second quarter. That put a lot of pressure on Bortles and even more stress on the line, which really struggled against speedy linebacker Dee Ford.Bortles completed 33 of 61 passes, with one touchdown and four interceptions.”Everyone is in a tough situation,” Marrone said. “You turn around the next day (and) you want to run the football. Looking back, maybe we started throwing it a little too early. Maybe we just were pressing too much early. … You’re always going to look at that and you’re not going to sit here and say that, ‘Hey, we’re a team that wants to throw the ball 60-something times.'”
