TOM BRADY has seen it all – but even he was impressed by Patrick Mahomes’ dominance of Sunday Night Football.
The 27-year-old Kansas City play-caller was at his best as the Chiefs won 41-31 in a shootout at Raymond James Stadium.
It was an emotional event in Tampa as fans gathered for the first game since Hurricane Ian devastated parts of the Sunshine State.
Mahomes completed 23 passes for 239 yards and three touchdowns as the visitors went 3-1 this season.
But it was the 2018 MVP’s incredible passing range that stunned both the home crowd and Bucs QB Brady.
The GOAT did everything to keep the Bucs in the game, throwing a whopping 385 yards and three TDs.
However, it wasn’t enough to win the rampant Chiefs, who had accumulated 28 points by halftime.
Mahomes and Brady met in the middle of the field after the epic match.
And the seven-time Super Bowl winner had plenty of praise for the Chiefs star, who is over 1,100 passing yards after just four games into the new season.
Brady was heard saying, “You look great, keep it up.”
A smiling Mahomes replied, “Yes sir”.
Brady later tweeted: “Hard against a GREAT team. There’s a lot of work to do, but we have each other in the dressing room and we’re going to do it right.
“Time for a bit [work] on that shoulder and a few hours of film to find out how Pat flicked that TD pass.”
Mahomes’ performance lit up social media – many were struck by a ridiculous jump pass to Clyde Edwards-Helaire to make it 21-3.
Pressured in the pocket, Mahomes escaped before easily pivoting away from Devin White, yards from the end zone.
Just as the Bucs defense was closing in, he threw a perfect throw over their heads and straight to the wide open running back.
One fan said, “Mahomes, this is GOAT level.”
Another added: “That [play] was just bullshit.”
And a third commented: “Spin and the float game a thing of beauty!”
Mahomes and the Chiefs are back at Arrowhead Stadium next weekend when they welcome the Las Vegas Raiders.
While Brady and the Bucs will look to avoid a third straight loss when they play the Atlanta Falcons.
