Joe Burrow hailed as Patrick Mahomes’ only rival by fans, media

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is the main rival of Patrick Mahomes.

So says fans on the internet and media alike in the wake of this year’s AFC title game.

Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are off to the Super Bowl after he got past both Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills and then Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens in the conference title game.

While the conversation of Mahomes’ “true” rival might strike some football fans as silly, the fact Burrow is the only active quarterback to beat Mahomes in the playoffs and one of two to actually do it (the other is Tom Brady) is pretty wild.

Here’s a look at some of the discourse featuring Burrow and Mahomes after the AFC title game.
