After a two-touchdown performance against the Washington Commanders, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Jody Fortson called Patrick Mahomes the most accurate quarterback in the NFL.
There has been a lot of debate this season regarding who is the most accurate quarterback in the NFL. Tyreek Hill, current wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, called Tua Tagovailoa the most accurate passer in the league, including over Patrick Mahomes.
The Kansa City Chiefs played in preseason action on Aug. 20 against the Washington Commanders, where Mahomes participated in the team’s first two offensive drives. Each drive ended the same way, with passing touchdowns to tight end Jody Fortson.
After the game, Fortson said he feels Mahomes “is the most accurate quarterback in the NFL.” You can listen to his exact comments at the 1:15 mark in the video below, courtesy of the Kansas City Chiefs’ official YouTube page:
Jody Fortson calls Patrick Mahomes ‘the most accurate quarterback in the NFL’
Fortson genuinely praising Mahomes for his accuracy during the game, especially on the two end zone touchdown passes to him.
Even though Mahomes played for the majority of the first quarter, his statistics against Washington’s defense was impressive. In his limited playing time, Mahomes completed 12-of-19 pass attempts for 162 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Not to mention that Mahomes was making incredible passes, such as his cross body, sidearm throw to wide receiver Justin Watson.
As for Forston, this was his first game back as an active player on the Chiefs after he suffered a torn Achilles back in Week 6 of the 2021 season against Washington. Fortson saw five targets come his way, catching four of them for 19 yards and the two aforementioned touchdowns.
Mahomes and the Chiefs are looking to make it to the Super Bowl for the third time in four years. As has been the case through his first four years as a starting quarterback, you can not count out the Chiefs due to Mahomes’ accuracy and creativity.
