This season, he'll be trying to do something that not many have been able to accomplish before. When he and his Chiefs travel down to Mexico City this season to take on the Los Angeles Chargers, he's going to try to toss the rock the entire length of the field.
Patrick Mahomes tells @PardonMyTake that he believes he can throw a football 100 yards at the 7,200-foot elevation of Mexico City's stadium; he'll get a chance to try it this season https://t.co/RNAQt1Iybn— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 21, 2019
When Mahomes appeared on the Pardon My Take podcast, he claimed he could toss the ball at least 80 yards at Mile High Stadium in Denver. So naturally, with the higher elevation in Mexico City, Mahomes believes he can toss it the complete length of the field.
The @Chiefs will head to Mexico City to play the @Chargers this season. While on Pardon My Take podcast Patrick Mahomes was asked how far he thought he could toss the ball in Azteca Stadium. "Probably 100...Yeah, I got to like 80, 83 in Denver." #NFLUK pic.twitter.com/AIVAZxFtRW— The NFL Show (@thenflshowpod) May 21, 2019
He pulled off the no-look throw and he's thrown the ball across his body on a line to his receivers, so this next outrageous accomplishment would only be fitting. We're not really sure how we'd react to seeing a 100-yard throw in a game, but it would be unreal to watch.
Please Patrick, this is something we all need to see next season. We can only hope the Chiefs are down 6 with the ball on their own one-yard line and two seconds left when they square off with LA.
