Mahomes Madness: Sweet 16 voting for regions three and four

New, comment

Sweet 16 voting for the Schrager and Ketchup regions (left side) is now officially open!

We are using the month of March at Arrowhead Pride to identify Patrick Mahomes’ best 2018 play by way of a 32-play tournament called Mahomes Madness. If you haven’t voted on the Sweet 16 on the left side of the bracket, please do so here.

Now we’re moving to the right side of the bracket—and you have until Friday, March 22, at Midnight Arrowhead Time to vote.

Subscribe to the Arrowhead Pride YouTube channel for updates all month long!

Let’s get to it...

The bracket

We continue in the second round with the SCHRAGER and KETCHUP regions. Watch the plays again in the above YouTube video (if you can’t see it, click here), then vote on which play you’d like to see advance in Mahomes Madness.

(Note: If you can’t see the polls, try clicking here. Our voting mechanism works best on desktop devices.)

Schrager region

1 vs. 4: “Lefty” vs. “Out of Bounds”

  • The left-handed throw was a huge moment in the creation of Mahomes’ legacy in his run to the MVP award. On Monday Night Football, with current Cowboys tight end Jason Witten calling the game, Mahomes made one of his most creative and clutch third-down conversions of his season.
  • On the road in a loss to Seattle, Mahomes made the game interesting rolling to his right and throwing a touchdown pass that was (literally) placed out of bounds, where only Robinson could catch it.

2 vs. 3: “Starting the Comeback” vs. “Back into the field”

  • The first score of the AFC championship game for the Chiefs came about because Mahomes found Watkins for a big play down the field on third-and-2. On the run, Mahomes went over the entire defense and hit the Lizard King for a huge gain.
  • Yet another nationally televised play in Denver, where Mahomes rolled left and threw the ball back into the middle of the field to Kelce for a big third-and-11 conversion.

Ketchup region

1 vs. 4: “The Last Big Play” vs. “You Can’t Defend That”

  • I have tried to avoid watching the Chiefs’ final game of the year, but one of the best plays of Mahomes’ season was also one of his last. With 32 seconds remaining in the season and the Chiefs trailing by three, Mahomes rolled to his right and found Ware streaking down the sideline that put them into Patriots territory and led to a field goal to tie the game.
  • In the AFC divisional round, Mahomes rolled to his right and hit Kelce in the middle of the field to convert a third-and-6 in the first quarter of his first playoff game.

2 vs. 3: “The Shortstop” vs. “No. 50”

  • Charcandrick West came back to the team late in the season and Mahomes rewarded him with a prime time touchdown that he somehow got to him with an athletic throw while rolling to his left.
  • The final regular season touchdown pass of the season was an explosive, broken play where Robinson elected to take the play deep and Mahomes hit him as he stepped up in the pocket to deliver the longest touchdown pass of his season.
