On Saturday night, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes II is expected to receive the NFL’s MVP award at the NFL Honors event. Before he receives the league’s best award, he had to respond to a challenge.
During an interview with Barstool Radio, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen challenges Mahomes II to see who can throw the ball further. Mahomes wants to know who is hosting it?
Both quarterbacks have cannons for an arm. In addition, both quarterbacks started for their respective teams.
Mahomes II had an unbelievable season in his first-year as the starter for the Chiefs. He took over the reins after Alex Smith was traded in the 2018 off-season to the Washington Redskins.
The 23-year-old Tyler, Texas native went 12-4 as a starter in 2018. He went 383 of 580 for 5,097 yards. He also had 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Mahomes is just the third player ever to have 50 touchdowns in a season. He joined Peyton Manning and Tom Brady with 50 or more touchdowns in a season.
He’s also one of seven quarterbacks ever to have more than 5,000 passing yards in a season. New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees is the only quarterback ever to have more than one in a career, as he has done this five times.
His best game of the season came in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams. He had 478 yards in the 54-51 loss to the Rams.
The 22-year-old Firebaugh, California native made 12 appearances, including 11 starts for the Bills in his rookie season. He went 169 of 320 for 2,074 yards. He also had 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
His best game of the season came in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Chargers. He had a season-best 245 passing yards in the contest.
