10. Mahomes slings it to Demarcus Robinson for a ridiculous touchdown
Early in the season, the Chiefs faced an intriguing test against the Baltimore Ravens, who entered the game 2-0 and featured rising young quarterback Lamar Jackson. Kansas City built an early 7-6 lead and was threatening again, facing a 1st-and-10 play from the Baltimore 18 (about nine seconds into this video).
Mahomes dropped back to throw and had to chuck one up off his back foot, but he managed to place the ball in position for Demarcus Robinson to make an incredible one-handed catch. The play resulted in a touchdown, setting the stage for a Chiefs victory.
9. Mahomes starts off 2019 with a 68-yard touchdown to Sammy Watkins
The NFL world was very high on Mahomes after his MVP season, but a few pundits wondered if the whiz kid would be in for a sophomore slump. Mahomes quickly put those concerns to rest on his first drive of the season.
The Chiefs were taking on the Jacksonville Jaguars, with Mahomes facing a 3rd-and-3 from his own 32. He calmly got the ball into the hands of Watkins, who made a man miss and took it the distance for the Chiefs’ first touchdown of the season.
This play may not have been super flashy, but it showcased the excellent decision-making skills of Mahomes, who was content to get the ball out to a playmaker who can make things happen.
