Even though there are no live sports, we can still entertain ourselves by watching Patrick Mahomes battle Baker Mayfield in a 2016 classic.
If you are like me, you miss football the very second the NFL season ends. I am a fan of all sports but to me, there is nothing better than Saturdays and Sundays in the Fall. I clear my schedule, buy some beer and pretty much sit my butt in front of the television for 48 hours straight. It’s glorious.
Sports are a wonderful form of entertainment and distraction for many of us. Unfortunately, as we navigate through this current period of high stress and uncertainty, we don’t have sports to take our minds off things. We are doing our best here at FanSided and Arrowhead Addict to keep bringing you fun and engaging content during this difficult time and so when I came across a very exciting, classic football game on YouTube today, I thought it would be nice to share it with the Chiefs Kingdom.
In 2016, Mahomes and his Texas Tech Red Raiders hosted Mayfield’s Oklahoma Sooners and the game was absolutely bonkers. Calling this game a shootout is an understatement. The Sooners prevailed 66-59. Mahomes was ridiculous, even by his standards. The reigning Super Bowl MVP was 52 of 88 passing for 734 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception. Mahomes added 12 carries for 85 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Simply amazing.
To his credit, Mayfield was also stellar. The current Browns quarterback threw for 545 yards, seven touchdowns, and no picks. He was also helped out by a downright terrifying rushing attack led by Joe Mixon. Mixon piled up 263 yards and two touchdowns on the ground and added another 114 yards and three touchdowns as a receiver.
You can check out the entire game below or on Youtube. Even in a losing effort, more footage of Mahomes playing football is a good thing. Enjoy!
