Patrick Mahomes Asserts Himself to Chiefs Coaches Before Securing Game-Winning Pass

Published on


With the game on the line, there’s no quarterback in the NFL who is more reliable than Patrick Mahomes. The two-time Super Bowl champ has proven that time and time again.

He doesn’t shy away from the moment either — that was clear during Sunday’s AFC title game.

On the Chiefs’ final drive against the Ravens, Kansas City was facing a third-and-long play with the two-minute warning looming. If they failed to convert there, the Ravens would have gotten the ball back for a potential game-tying drive. So, when Baltimore called its final timeout before that third-down play, Mahomes had one demand for the Chiefs coaching staff.

“Give me the ball.”

The latest edition of Inside the NFL picked up Mahomes telling the Chiefs coaches that he wanted to take that decisive shot downfield and seal the game. That’s exactly what he did too with a 32-yard completion to Marquez Valdes-Scantling. Keep watching for Mahomes’ reaction too.

That kind of confidence is contagious, and fans absolutely loved hearing Mahomes step up in that situation. He wasn’t letting that drive end on a conservative play call at all.

This was how Twitter reacted
