Patrick Mahomes told Chiefs “Let’s do something special” when they fell behind

The only way the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Texans couldn’t have gone any worse for the Chiefs would have been if Patrick Mahomes had been injured.

The Texans led 21-0 after 15 minutes and extended that lead to 24-0 before the Chiefs got off the mat. Because Mahomes wasn’t injured, he was there to lead the charge by throwing four touchdown passes in the second quarter to put the Chiefs in front before halftime.

After the 51-31 win, Mahomes shared the message he had for his teammates when they found themselves in that deep hole early in the game.

“The biggest thing I was preaching to the team was ‘let’s do something special,” Mahomes said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN.com.

Mahomes finished the day with 321 passing yards, 53 rushing yards and five passing touchdowns, which certainly qualifies as a special outing. Another one next week could send the Chiefs to the Super Bowl for the third time in franchise history.

  1. Meanwhile the fake MVP is a loser of two playoff games in his career. Apparently the standards in 2019 season for MVP have been lowered.

  2. This guy is something special himself. Amazing job and the true MVP.
    Not taking anything away from what Lamar Jackson accomplished but that type of QB play will last one to 3 seasons max before the defensive coordinators put together game plans to eliminate that type of QB play. That and a major injury will change the way he plays and performs. Don’t have to look far for that example with RGme.

  3. No,You didn’t do something special. Texans handed you the game by doing something stupid, fake punt on their own 30 was basically giving the game away. If it was a different team you’d lost it.

  4. A generational talent. A class act of a human being and a true team leader. Chiefs struck gold with Mahomes.

    I guess you didn’t like it when he beat your team.

    The guy’s amazing, and will be a dominant force in the league for ages. Even in that “bad” game he had this weekend, he had over 500 combined yards.

    Great player. It will be exciting to see how he does in the future.
