For the sixth and possibly final time, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his counterpart on the Buccaneers, Tom Brady, met on the field after a game.

The Chiefs beat Tampa Bay 41-31 on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium, so Mahomes evened his career record against Brady at 3-3.

When the final second ticked off the clock, the two quarterbacks met briefly on the field.

The last thing Brady said was: “You did great. keep it up.”

Mahomes’ response: “Yes sir.”

The two stars then went their own way.

After the game, Brady was asked by reporters about Mahomes

“I like Patrick a lot. I had a chance to be around him a little bit,” Brady said. ”Obviously I think he’s a great player — he’s doing a great job with that team, and he’s got a great career ahead of him. So I’m always here to help anybody that I can, anyone who’s looking for advice and I’ve certainly seen a lot in the game and I’m always happy to pass on the information to others to hopefully see those guys maximize their potential like I’ve been very fortunate to maximize mine.

“I’ve had a lot of mentors in my life that played a very important role in my being the best I can be, too, so the least I can do is give it back to all the other people who are looking for success in their field. So, I’ve been very lucky to — certainly not me — it takes a lot of people to support all of us and I really love watching Patrick play. He does a great job for that team and unfortunately we were on the wrong end of that tonight.”
