Patrick Mahomes used his legs to drag the Chiefs back into the game against the Titans and his wife Brittany led the charge praising him.
Patrick Mahomes has always brought dynamic scrambling ability to the table along with his sidearm throws and jaw-dropping improvisation.
On Sunday Night Football, his scrambling reached a new level as he led a comeback against the Titans.
The Chiefs trailed 17-9 late in the fourth quarter and faced a third-and-17 that threatened to bury them. Mahomes gave his team new life with a scrambling conversion to keep the drive going.
A few plays later, the quarterback took off again and barrelled his way into the endzone. Then he burned the Titans with his legs again on the successful two-point conversion.
Patrick Mahomes might not look fast, but everyone is still wowed by his scrambling
While NFL Twitter was trying to understand how Mahomes could look so slow while gaining so many yards, Brittany Mahomes was on social media ready for her man’s transition to running back.
The touchdown and two-point conversion tied the game at 17 and launched the game into overtime.
It also solidified Mahomes as one of the most incredible talents in the league. On a night when the Titans’ pass rush harassed him and the Chiefs’ offense looked stagnant, he put the team on his back and willed them back into it.
There simply aren’t many individuals in the history of the league capable of doing the things that Mahomes manages to do each week.
He might not be fast, but he’s incredibly effective and always entertaining.
