To be fair, this wasn’t Mahomes completing a third and 19, this was Mahomes throwing to a wide open Kelce because the Raiders safety decided to spy Mahomes -instead of covering the best receiving tight end in football.
Perhaps the oddest part of Alex Smith’s comeback story is the fact that other QBs playing in the same game as him keep getting injured.
First Ryan Fitzpatrick (Alex didn’t play that game but was dressed and in attendance)
Then Kyle Allen (horrible leg injury)
Then this week Joe Burrow (other horrible leg injury)
it’s like the universe is trying to compensate for Alex coming back to play football by injuring every other QB instead.
The Bucs will not be representing in the SuperBowl (obviously) - that will likely come from a team in the NIners division not named the Niners.....if they hadn't had so many injuries - all 4 teams might have made it. Its still a good chance 3 of them do.
The Rams will go as far as Goff plays well - who knows how far that will be....
Gonna ignore the obligatory “How does ESPN have Peyton under contract but not calling MNF” take and say that Beast Mode remains one of the most wholesomely entertaining dudes to have played prosports in the last couple of decades.
