Arguably, Mahomes is the most clutch quarterback in the NFL. After Super Bowl LVII, he has a record of 15-10 in games where the Chiefs trailed at halftime. This made him the only QB since the NFC-AFC merger in 1966 with a record above .500. It’s a ridiculous statistic and shows how much the Chiefs need him (via New York Post).
We’re not going to say that the Patriots did fine with Matt Cassel as their starter in 2008. But they went 11-5 and narrowly missed the playoffs. Nobody else received a chance because of Brady’s consistency. That’s why they traded Jimmy Garoppolo to the Niners. But Mahomes defines the way the Chiefs’ success in a way Brady never did for New England.
