Patrick Mahomes is under the radar throughout the season. He’s not in the same form or class as he was in previous seasons. However, his strong performance against the Las Vegas Raiders has brought him back to attention. Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, prepared a report about him.
This Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Dallas Cowboys. Both teams are in great shape but one team is better than the other. With players such as Trevon Diggs, CeeDee Lamb, Trevon Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott playing exceptionally well, the Cowboys appear set to make it into the playoffs.
The Chiefs, on the other hand were disappointing. The Chiefs lost to the Bills, Chargers and Titans in a series of upsets. Patrick Mahomes was a different quarterback, throwing ten interceptions within half a season. Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, does a great impression of Mahomes despite his poor performance.
Jones spoke to sports radio station KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan. “I think he has been true to form. His style, his athletic ability, his speed, all of the things that serve him well, and make no mistake about it, as you know, he stayed at Texas Tech when some pretty good quarterbacks that were behind him moved on out there that ended up being starters in the NFL. So, he’s no surprise.”
“I think it was — it’s interesting how his particular style has compromised defenses, certainly his first few years. I think as time moves along he will adjust, but defenses will adjust, too. But you’re not going to take away his gift, and that is to just make plays, and he’s out there to make plays. So, all of that — I’ve seen a quarterback in the last years and years that literally carry a team than I would put him on the top of that list, or right there at the top. What they’ve done a great job though is putting talent around him that matches his skills.”
Would Patrick Mahomes have made a good match in Dallas? Is it possible that he would have experienced the same success in Dallas as he did in Kansas City.
