Mahomes Joke; Key mocked Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on Thursday night while hosting the NFL Honors show. The tight end, Travis Kelce, did not like it, and he did not like it very much.
During the second half of the AFC Championship game, Key made a joke about Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s fashion sense. He then chastised Mahomes’ play in the second half.
After the joke, the camera shifted to Kelce, but the star-tight end didn’t even crack a smile. Key, I assume, did not see Kelce following the event. Kelce will not let anyone speak negatively about Mahomes (nor should he).
Even if you disagree with your assessment of Mahomes’ effectiveness in the second half, it is clear that he was not at his best. Football, on the other hand, operates in a unique manner. When the Chiefs play, Mahomes remains the team’s heart. Kansas City would not have advanced this far in the playoffs without him.
While Joe Burrow is the talk of the town at the moment, Patrick Mahomes has accomplished considerably more than Burrow has in his brief career.
It’s hardly a bad thing if Mahomes is currently the NFL’s best quarterback.
Throughout the NFL Honors’ history, hosts have used jokes to make some of the world’s top players laugh and feel bad about themselves. Keegan-Michael Key clearly did not like what he saw on the face of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ preferred target, tight end Travis Kelce.
As he entered Arrowhead Stadium for the AFC Championship, Key lauded Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s outfit, which contributed to the Bengals’ victory over the Kansas City Chiefs and advancement to the Super Bowl. He then fired a shot in the direction of Mahomes.
Three years ago, when Patrick Mahomes was named league MVP, he received a toast at the NFL Honors. The show’s host, Keegan-Michael Key, criticized Mahomes on Thursday. A photograph of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow’s clothing was shown prior to the AFC Championship Game.
Burrow was paying honor to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Key asserted that it had an effect on the team’s quarterback, Patrick Mahomes. When Patrick Mahomes saw a photo of this costume during halftime, Key quipped that he had lost his football talents.
There were murmurs and laughter when the camera focused on Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who frowned and appeared unimpressed. “I apologise, Travis,” the key states. “You were my friend, man,” Travis says. Kelce then appeared to shake his head.
Bio and his line of work
Mahomes is a quarterback for the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs. He was born on September 17, 1995. (NFL). When he was younger, he was a football and baseball player at Texas Tech University.
He is the son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Pat Mahomes and a graduate of Kansas State University, where he lettered in both football and baseball. After his sophomore year, he gave up baseball to concentrate completely on football in order to better his performance.
During his junior year, he led all NCAA Division I FBS players in a variety of categories, including passing yards (5,052) and total touchdowns. He was taken by the Kansas City Chiefs with the tenth overall choice in the 2017 NFL Draft.
He began his career as Alex Smith’s backup. Smith’s role was slated to begin in 2018 before the Chiefs moved him to the Redskins. During that season, Mahomes threw for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions.
As a result, he is the first NFL quarterback to throw for more than 5,000 yards in both collegiate and professional football. He became the first player in NFL history to throw 50 touchdown passes and 5,000 yards in a single season.
During his first season as a starter, he was named to the Pro Bowl. Additionally, he was voted NFL Offensive Player of the Year and MVP. There have been only four black quarterbacks to win the Associated Press MVP award.
During the 2019–20 playoffs,
Mahomes guided the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years. They defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV for the first time in 50 years. Mahomes was named MVP for his Super Bowl performance, making him only the second African-American quarterback and the youngest player in history to receive the honor.
This year’s Super Bowl victory is the third for an African-American quarterback. Mahomes agreed to a 10-year contract extension worth $477 million in 2020, with the possibility of an extra $26 million in bonuses, for a total of $503 million.
This is the second-largest deal in sports history. What followed was as follows: He returned to the Super Bowl one more time but was defeated 9–31 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This was the first time in his NFL career that he had lost by more than ten points.
Mahomes started as a sophomore at Texas Tech. He threw for 425 yards and four touchdowns in his team’s season-opening win over Sam Houston State, 59–45. He threw for 361 yards and four touchdowns in Tech’s 69–20 victory over UTEP,
while also scoring twice on the run. Mahomes threw for 392 yards and two touchdowns in a 55–52 loss to TCU, despite the game being close. During the 2015 season, he passed for 4,653 yards, 36 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions.
Mahomes began his career as a backup quarterback to Davis Webb.
Webb completed two of five passes for 20 yards with one touchdown and one interception in his return game following an injury. Mahomes entered his first game against Texas after Webb sustained another injury. He scored the game’s only touchdown after completing 13 of 21 throws for 109 yards.
Mahomes remained the starting quarterback for the remaining three games of the season. He set a Big 12 freshman quarterback record with 598 yards, six touchdowns, and only one turnover as a Baylor freshman quarterback. This season, he threw for 1,547 yards and 16 touchdowns while throwing four interceptions and three sacks.
Mahomes set many NCAA, Big 12, and school records when he threw for 66 yards and a score against Oklahoma at home on October 22, 2016. Mahomes set a new record for single-game total offense with 819 yards. This was the most comprehensive offensive performance in NCAA FBS history in a single game.
He broke the NCAA record for most passing yards in a single game with 734. He attempted to break the record 88 times but was unsuccessful. A total of 1,708 passing yards and the highest combined offense by two players set new NCAA records (the other was Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield). 125 points is the second-highest total ever scored by ranked teams.
Mahomes finished the season atop the country in yards per game (421), passing yards (5,052), total offense (5,312), points scored (318), and total touchdowns. Additionally, he led the country in points for which he was responsible.
Each year, the best college football player is recognized with a trophy. Sammy Baugh was named the Sammy Baugh Trophy winner for his accomplishments, becoming the fourth Texas Tech athlete to do so. He was named to the second team of the College Sports Information Directors of America.
