Mahomes Madness: We are down to eight elite plays

The tournament of 32 Patrick Mahomes plays is down to eight

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. We just wrapped up the “Sweet 16” here and here.

Now we’re on to the “Elite Eight” and need YOUR votes. You have until Tuesday, March 26 at Midnight Arrowhead Time to vote.

Let’s get to it...

Jorts region final

1. “4th and 9” vs. 2. “How did that get there?

  • The favorite to win this region was a do-or-die fourth down to help the Chiefs come back and beat the Ravens.
  • With anticipation, Mahomes threw a ball sidearm around lineman Andrew Wylie, beyond the outstretched hands of defensive rookie of the year Darius Leonard and into the hands of Travis Kelce.

Did You Know He Played Baseball? region final

1. “The Scramble” vs. 2. “No Look

  • Mahomes’ first touchdown in Arrowhead Stadium was quite the reward for a fan base starved for a franchise quarterback. He rolled left, rolled right and found Chris Conley in a tight window in the back of the end zone. It’s art.
  • How did the no-look pass not get a one seed? Mahomes’ season was THAT good. This play broke the internet and could ultimately breakthrough to the final four.

Schrager region final

1. “Lefty” vs. 3. “Back into the field

  • 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.
  • 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 final

1. “The Last Big Play” vs. 3. “No. 50

  • 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.
  • 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.
