Patrick Mahomes paid the ultimate respect to Josh Allen after the Chiefs and Bills played an epic thriller that had to be decided in overtime.
Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen should provide NFL fans incredible battles for years to come as two of the league’s most talented quarterbacks.
The two seem to respect each other greatly too, which should only make the rivalry between them all the better.
As the celebrations at Arrowhead Stadium went off, Mahomes went running in search of Allen for a postgame hug.
Patrick Mahomes showed Josh Allen huge respect after Chiefs-Bills
When CBS interviewed Mahomes on the field, he gave Allen credit for playing so well.
Rivalries with bad blood can provide plenty of sparks but two young stars of the game showing that kind of sportsmanship is great for the game. Mahomes and Allen can be role models for how to treat opponents while also showing all the passion possible during the game.
Unfortunately, someone had to lose the hard-fought AFC Divisional Round game on Sunday. The Chiefs eliminated the Bills from the playoffs last year as well but the heartbreak this time around is even greater.
NFL fans will get to watch Mahomes battle another bright young quarterback in Joe Burrow next week in the AFC Championship Game.
As for Allen, he’ll have to go home disappointed, and hopefully more motivated to get the Chiefs back in next season’s playoffs.
