11 Quarterbacks He Has Defeated in the Playoffs Thus Far

Published on


At this point, it’s more than fair to call Patrick Mahomes the Michael Jordan of the NFL. Not only in the sense of his greatness while leading the Kansas City Chiefs to postseason glory every year but also in how he prevents his extremely talented counterparts from tasting their own success. Mahomes is now 14-3 in the playoffs as a starter. That’s 14 different instances where Pro Bowl-caliber quarterbacks, superstars, and signal-callers on the verge of Lombardi Trophy greatness were impeded by the best football player alive. And given that Mahomes doesn’t turn 29 until mid-September, chances are the list of playoff quarterback conquests will only continue to grow in the coming years. Let’s take a look at all 12 quarterbacks Mahomes has overcome in his iconic postseason career so far.

The Texans and Deshaun Watson — who was once accused of more than 20 allegations of sexual misconduct in what the NFL would later characterize as “predatory behavior” — had Mahomes’ Chiefs on the ropes in this one. But then Kansas City made coming back from a 24-0 deficit look impossibly easy. Though, to be fair, that’s just the story of Mahomes in the playoffs.
