Why Mahomes Makes This Postseason Different For The K.C Chiefs

pat mahomes jr kansas city chiefsPatrick Mahomes has more than a playoff game to win this week, he has to beat history as the Kansas City are 0-6 in playoff games played at Arrowhead Stadium since 1994. Mahomes must put an end to a grueling losing streak tormenting several generations of Chiefs fans around the nation.

Even though each of those losses is clearly remembered by the city’s diehard fans, this time there is a different feeling, and even a sense of optimism in the air thanks to the leadership and skills of Patrick Mahomes.

The second-year player, who just had one of the best seasons for a quarterback in the history of the league, passed for 50 touchdowns, and 5,097 yards while completing 66 percent of his passes. He’s trying to not only break that postseason skid but also make history by leading the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl since 1970.

Even though he was picked 12 times, Mahomes has injected this team with high hopes as he’s led them to a 12-4 record and the title of the AFC West.

Mahomes is a quarterback who has tremendous passing skills, a great arm and a huge ability to extend plays with his legs to escape pocket pressure.

Although he only rushed for two touchdowns his mobility allows him to scramble long enough to give his receivers time to beat the defenders downfield and the arm strength and accuracy necessary to pull out some of the most outlandish passes ever seen.

Those six teams that lost those games at Arrowhead didn’t have a player as talented as Mahomes suiting up for them. This 23-year-old, who’s already established himself as a future MVP type of player (and may win the award this season) has everyone in Kansas City dreaming of a new era looming for this team and for head coach Andy Reid, who hasn’t won a playoff game since 2015 and has lost six of seven playoffs games since 2009.

After such an outstanding season Mahomes has to prove he’s up to the challenge and win his first playoff game to exorcise demons in Kansas City.

Although Deshaum Watson and Lamar Jackson failed to do just that for the Houston Texans and the Baltimore Ravens this past weekend, Mahomes is eager to prove that he is ready for the challenge and capable of putting on a show to lead the Chiefs to the next round and maybe even the Super Bowl.
