Ben Roethslisberger’s horrible INT proves (again) that nobody is like Patrick Mahomes

When Patrick Mahomes lit the Buccaneers’ defense up for 462 passing yards and three passing touchdowns in a 27-24 win last Sunday, one of the more ridiculous throws Mahomes made in the usual gallery of them was this preposterous completion to receiver Mecole Hardman. Here, Mahomes moves to his left, away from his throwing momentum, and goes all Steph Curry with the fadeaway zip for three points.

Halfway through the first quarter of the Steelers-Ravens game that had already been moved from Thanksgiving night to Wednesday after Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday didn’t work due to the Ravens’ COVID outbreak that has 23 players, seven Pro Bowlers, and nine season-opening starters out of this contest, Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, perhaps inspired by Mahomes’ feats of derring-do, decided to run his own fadeaway jumper.

Neither Mahomes nor Steph Curry would be impressed by the result, as Big Ben threw a cute little balloon in the direction of Ravens linebacker Tyus Bowser, who rejoiced in his early Christmas gift.

Let that be a lesson to every other quarterback in the NFL: Just because Patrick Mahomes can do it, doesn’t mean that you can.
