Here’s what happened in our simulation:
Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady put on a clinic, Skyy Moore had a big night and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs scored a combined 38 points in the fourth quarter. Well, at least that is what happened in the EA Universe.
Due to Mecole Hardman's heel and Marquez Valdes-Scantling showing up on the injury report this week, Moore became a reliable target for Mahomes. Moore was lined up in the slot majority of the game and caught two big passes — one led to a touchdown run by Clyde Edwards-Helaire and the other a field goal. Then, early in the fourth quarter, Moore had two big catches that led to a Hardman touchdown to go up seven points.
Moore caught the game-winning touchdown pass which was a 73-yard bomb from Mahomes with only eight seconds remaining. Moore's speed and hands were definitely on showcase throughout the game as he finished the game with 191 yards.
Travis Kelce might not have caught a touchdown pass this game, but he was Mahomes' first look to get first downs when needed. Kelce racked up 122 yards on nine catches.
The fourth quarter was absolutely insane. A total of 38 points were scored, and 21 were scored with under a minute left in the game.
Final score: Chiefs 38, Buccaneers 34
Patrick Mahomes 35/46, 404 yards, 4 TD, 1 INT
Tom Brady 32/40, 399 yards, 3 TD
