There are things in sports that are better off just being accepted rather than resisted. Step in the box against Jacob DeGrom and you’re going to strike out. Try whatever defense you’d like against Steph Curry, he’s still splashing threes.
Play a football game with Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid on the opposing sideline, they will find a way to win. That is how it has been for five years, that’s how it was on Sunday, and that’s how it will be for years to come.
Jalen Hurts played nearly a perfect game.
The Eagles’ offense had a stranglehold on the clock, moved the chains at will, and connected on numerous deep throws.
Not enough. It is just never enough with 15 and Big Red on the other side.
Kansas City efficiently ran the ball in the Super Bowl against a great defense and did so with a seventh-round rookie and a QB on a bad ankle. The Chiefs’ O-line allowed zero sacks against one of the most dominant pass rushing groups in recent memory.
Patrick Mahomes played a perfect football game. Three touchdowns, no turnovers, no sacks taken, no missed opportunities. This KC offense meticulously paraded the ball down the field into the red zone where Andy Reid dialed up the perfect plays.
Andy Reid has infinitely more buttons at his disposal than anyone else and he ALWAYS pushes the right ones.
The flag at the end of the game sucked. It just did. You hate to see a minor holding penalty decide the ending to a phenomenal game. While it does feel like the neutral fans were robbed of a truly special ending, it does not diminish the KC win at all in my eyes.
From a big picture standpoint, this was a collassial win for the Chiefs. If Kansas City had lost — leaving them with just one ring over this dominant five-year stretch — things would feel way different. But two Super Bowl wins in the past four seasons is special. Patrick Mahomes has two rings, two Super Bowl MVPs, and two NFL MVPs.
This win killed any QB of the era debate before one could even get off the ground. Mahomes is chasing Brady now for GOAT status. That’s really all that is left for Mahomes which is outrageous to say about a 27-year-old quarterback.
The Chiefs as an organization are just impeccable from top to bottom. They are more than a team with an all-time QB and that is what makes them so consistently terrifying.
This team is not going anywhere. Don’t waste time or energy fighting it.
The Chiefs are inevitable.
