Former NFL Coach Rips Into Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

This Sunday marks a significant moment in Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ postseason journey, as he prepares to face the Buffalo Bills at the formidable Highmark Stadium in New York, a hostile territory unlike any he’s encountered before.

The game carries extra weight for Mahomes, as former NFL head coach Eric Mangini has challenged him to rise to the occasion.

During a recent episode of First Things First, Eric Mangini didn’t mince words, suggesting that the Kansas City Chiefs find themselves on the road in the playoffs due to an underwhelming season by Mahomes.

“You know why the Chiefs are on the road? Because of Patrick Mahomes. If you’re the greatest of all time like Nick Wright claims you are, it’s time for you to be the greatest of all time.”

Mangini has thrown down the gauntlet, implying that Mahomes needs to demonstrate his potential as the greatest quarterback of all time, a belief shared by his Fox Sports colleague Nick Wright, by delivering an exceptional performance this Sunday.

It’s worth noting that while Mahomes boasts two consecutive playoff victories against the Bills, he has faced a regular-season challenge against them, losing three consecutive matchups. Interestingly, his sole regular-season victory over the Bills occurred on the road.

As the anticipation builds for Sunday’s showdown, there is a sense of curiosity as to whether Mahomes can reverse his fortunes in this hostile environment.

With 15 postseason games under his belt, he has yet to experience the unique challenge of a road game in a hostile setting. The question now looms: Can Mahomes prove Eric Mangini wrong and solidify his status as one of the NFL’s all-time greats this weekend? The stage is set, and the football world awaits the answer.
