It looks like the Baltimore Ravens’ Derek Wolfe is finally happy he’s out of the AFC West.
That would be because according to the veteran defensive end, he’s glad he won’t have to face Patrick Mahomes twice a year anymore. Wolfe had previously been a member of the Denver Broncos.
“I mean I’m glad I don’t have to play against (Mahomes) twice a year now,” Wolfe said, per Mike Klis of 9News. “Because he was such a huge pain in the ass. You’d get a lead on him and they’d still find a way to come back. They have such a good team all around. I’m excited to be part of another team that’s looking just like that.”
Wolfe played for the Broncos for the past eight seasons. However, he only had to deal with Mahomes since 2018. Needless to say, Wolfe’s Broncos lost all four times to Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, Denver lost by a combined margin of 110-55.
While Wolfe won’t have to play Mahomes twice in the regular season anymore, he’ll still have to deal with him this season. The Ravens will host the Chiefs at some point during the 2020 season. And considering both teams are considered two of the top teams in the AFC, they’ll likely have to face each other in the playoffs at some point.
It’s worth mentioning that the Ravens have lost to the Chiefs twice in the past two seasons. In other words, Wolfe may still have to play the reigning Super Bowl MVP twice after all.
