Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs faced a 24-0 deficit in their Divisional Round matchup against the Houston Texans before turning things around to the tune of a 51-7 run to end the game. This is not basketball, and turnarounds like the one the Chiefs employed on Sunday typically do not happen in the NFL's postseason, making Kansas City's utter dominance of Houston after their early hole all the more impressive. Mahomes, for one, played a role in all of that, both on the field and from a motivational aspect.
Leave it to NFL Films to capture the story behind the on-field play. Mahomes was as active as ever on the sideline after Kansas City went down 24-0 at Arrowhead. Rather than give in to this embarrassment, the Chiefs QB motivated the troops and prepared the offense for an all-out aerial assault.
Despite the looming MVP accolade to be rewarded to Lamar Jackson, Mahomes continues to prove why he's the best signal-caller in the NFL hands down. He's not lacking in leadership, either.
