If you watched the Super Bowl on Sunday, then you know how much Patrick Mahomes was on the run for his life during that game. It completely took the Chiefs off their game and they were never able to get anything going.
Super Bowl LV was billed as Brady vs. Mahomes, but it quickly became Mahomes vs. the Bucs relentless defense.
According to Next Gen Stats, Mahomes traveled 497 yards before throwing the ball or being sacked, the most scramble yards in a game by any quarterback since 2016.
In the end, Brady was holding up the MVP trophy after the Buccaneers beat the Chiefs 31-9 in Raymond James Stadium, and Mahomes and company were left in complete shock with how they got dominated.
“Obviously, I didn’t play like I wanted to play,” Mahomes said. “What else can you say? All you can do is leave everything you have on the field, and I felt like the guys did that. They were the better team today. They beat us pretty good, the worst I think I’ve been beaten in a long time, but I’m proud of the guys and how they fought to the very end of the game.”
Mahomes was 26 of 49 passing for 270 yards and two interceptions. It was the first time he didn’t throw a touchdown in a game since Week 4 of the 2019 season.
