A short gain in the second quarter required incredible heroics from both future Hall of Famers.
It's no secret that Patrick Mahomes is good at his job. It's also nothing new to say that Travis Kelce is a productive tight end. But somehow the pair of future Hall of Famers still find a way to leave us speechless week after week.
At this point, Kansas City Chiefs fans have watched the heroics of Mahomes and Kelce for several years. Kelce has been with the team since he was drafted back in 2013, and he's served as the primary tight end since 2014 after missing that opening campaign with an injury. Mahomes was drafted in 2017 and took over the starting role from Alex Smith in '18.
Together, Mahomes and Kelce have played in 93 total games with 589 catches for 7,303 receiving yards and 53 total touchdowns which speak to their impressive body of work.
In short, it should be hard for Mahomes to make our jaws drop by now after all we've seen. It should be equally as difficult for Kelce to turn our heads after watching him catch so many passes up until now.
Then came this play in the second quarter of the Chiefs' game against the Baltimore Ravens in the conference championship round of the NFL postseason.
Yeah, somehow Mahomes found a way to stay alive via a scramble for the umpteenth time, barely escaping the grasp of multiple players as he somehow extended a play beyond what anyone could have expected. From there, he releases a throw that's even affected as he's releasing the ball but Kel;ce finds an insane way to contort his body and come up with the shocking catch.
If you found yourself sitting there asking "How in the world?", you weren't the only one.
