After the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Washington Commanders 24-14 in the week 2 preseason game, Mahomes had two touchdowns and a big surprise at the end.
In the Kansas City Chiefs preseason game 2 win over the Washington Commanders, quarterback Patrick Mahomes led two touchdown drives. Both were 12-play, 80-plus-yard drives and both were passes to Jody Fortson. Mahomes finished the night 12 of 19 for 162 yards. He played in the Chiefs week 1 game against the Chicago Bears as well and was six of seven for 60 yards with one touchdown in that game too. The Chiefs won 24-14.
I thought our execution was pretty good there,” said Chiefs coach Andy Reid. “The first play (was designed for Fortson). The second one Pat was moving around and found him.”
By now, no one is surprised that Patrick Mahomes is making touchdowns and showing out. It was Mahomes who got a surprise at the end of the game on Saturday when he was called back onto the field. A video came on the big screen to announce that his former university, Texas Tech would be inducting Patrick Mahomes into the Ring of Honor and Hall of Fame this year. The video featured Mahomes’ friends and family, TTU athletic director Kirby Hocutt, and former Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury.
The induction ceremony will take place on Ocotober 29, when Texas Tech plays against Baylor.Before Mahomes was a Super Bowl champion and NFL MVP, he was a Red Raider. And at Texas Tech, he is a legend. In his last two years in Lubbock, Texas, Mahomes led the nation in total offense. In three years as their starting quarterback, he threw for 11,252 yards – the third-most of any TTU quarterback.
“Patrick Mahomes’ accomplishments at Texas Tech are well-documented with his success as one of the top quarterbacks in college football history,” said Hocutt. “Patrick is an NFL MVP and Super Bowl champion, but he’s most importantly a Red Raider who remains an avid supporter of our great university.”
