At just 28 years old, Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, has already established himself as one of the most accomplished quarterbacks in the history of the NFL.
However, he stands on the verge of joining an exclusive group of quarterbacks with a potential victory over the Buffalo Bills this Sunday.
Mahomes boasts an impressive 2-0 record against Josh Allen and the Bills in postseason matchups, having eliminated them from playoff contention in both 2020 and 2021. Should Mahomes guide the Chiefs to victory against the Bills in their upcoming clash, he will achieve a remarkable milestone by becoming the fifth quarterback in the Super Bowl era to maintain a perfect 3-0 record in postseason encounters against another quarterback.
Here’s a bit of a breakdown from Associated Press writer Josh Dubow.
The esteemed quartet currently holding this distinction consists of Troy Aikman, Tom Brady, Jim Kelly, and John Elway. Aikman, during his successful tenure with the Dallas Cowboys, held a 3-0 record against the legendary Brett Favre. Tom Brady, on the other hand, consistently bested Philip Rivers during his time with the New England Patriots.
It’s worth noting that the previous two playoff showdowns between Patrick Mahomes and Allen unfolded at Arrowhead Stadium. However, this time, the stage is set in Buffalo, promising an intriguing battle between these two talented quarterbacks.
The eagerly anticipated Chiefs-Bills game is scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET, and fans are gearing up for what could be another memorable encounter in NFL history.
