- On Sunday, quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to a 27-24 comeback win over the Baltimore Ravens in overtime.
- En route to the win, Mahomes added two more impressive throws to his résumé, showing once again why he’s unlike any other quarterback we’ve seen.
The Kansas City Chiefs pulled off one of their most impressive wins of the season on Sunday, rallying late before defeating the Baltimore Ravens in overtime, 27-24.
Once again, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the star of the show. His powers were on display Sunday as he made two throws that seemed to defy all reason and logic.
Mahomes first took both fans and the Ravens defence by surprise with a “no-look” pass in the closing minutes of the first half. He connected with Demarcus Robinson for a 17-yard gain that helped set up a field goal before halftime.
The pass looked like something out of an And1 mixtape – but on a professional football field.

Mahomes wasn’t done.
Needing a touchdown to force overtime late in the game, the Chiefs faced a daunting fourth-and-9 in their territory. As Mahomes was flushed out of the pocket, the play seemed to be falling apart. Mahomes then launched an absolute beauty across his body that found Tyreek Hill streaking into the red zone.
The strength shown to get the ball out from such an odd angle was a rarity in football until this season, when Mahomes has made the play look almost commonplace.

Mahomes’ clutch throw to Hill set up the tying score, and the Chiefs went on to win in overtime.
Mahomes finished the day with 377 yards, two touchdowns, an interception, and two unforgettable throws. Altogether, it once again shows there is no other quarterback in the league quite like him.
