Though the Matt Moore Era somehow went off with very few hitches, resulting in a blowout win over the Broncos, a nail-biting loss to the Packers, and an upset victory against the Vikings, there isn't a Chiefs fan on earth who wouldn't rather watch Patrick Mahomes this Sunday.

Luckily, Kansas City appears ready to get its wish.

Mahomes was a full participant in practice on Wednesday, a bit less than three weeks after dislocating his knee on Thursday Night Football.

Judging purely based on Mahomes' raucous celebration after Harrison Butker's game-winner against the Vikes, we assumed we'd see him back and beating the odds for Week 10. Turns out, our faith appears to have been justified.

Up until the point of contact, which looked much worse than a simple dislocation, Mahomes was working toward an excellent follow-up campaign, with 15 TDs against one interception.

He was also battling ankle irritation, and came up lame quite often over the course of the season's first two months, from both friendly fire and hard contact. Now that he appears to have put this knee issue behind him, it might end up being for the best that he had time to heal across the board.
