Patrick Mahomes ran for his life Sunday night, resulting in one seriously ridiculous Super Bowl LV stat.
With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense overwhelming the Kansas City Chiefs offensive line, Mahomes routinely bailed from the pocket and ran like a madman to keep plays alive. The Chiefs quarterback on multiple occasions nearly completed what would have been legendary plays.
ESPN Stats and Info on Sunday shared a Mahomes stat that is difficult to fathom.
Take a look:
That’s right: Mahomes ran for 497 yards behind the line of scrimmage. That’s preposterous.
As for Tom Brady, Mahomes’ counterpart, it was business as usual for the 43-year-old after winning his seventh Lombardi Trophy.
