Watch: Patrick Mahomes razes Tampa Bay’s defense with 75-yard TD to Tyreek Hill

It’s always just a matter of time. You have the Chiefs’ offense down, you think things are going well, and then… things are not going well at all. Because all it takes is one slip, one busted coverage, one defender in the wrong place, and you are looking around at your defensive teammates, wondering what in the blue heck just happened.

Welcome to the jungle, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs were down 3-0 halfway through the first quarter, but they’d held Patrick Mahomes to five completions in seven attempts for 68 yards. And then, what always happens… well, happened. Mahomes dropped back, unloaded a pass a good 60 yards in the air, cornerback Carlton Davis tried to cover Tyreek Hill one-on-one on the vertical route, Antoine Winfield Jr. came over with late safety help after running the middle of the deep third, and the 2020 NFL Most Valuable Player discussion just became that much more redundant with this 75-yard scoring bomb.

Mahomes now has 28 touchdowns and just two interceptions on the season, and odds are, he’s not done yet.

(Addendum: I couldn’t even finish this post before Mahomes beat Davis and Winfield with another touchdown throw to Hill — this time, a 44-yarder. Yikes). So, that’s 29 touchdowns and two picks this season for Mahomes. The first quarter isn’t done yet, and Hill has seven catches on seven targets for 203 yards and two touchdowns.
