The Cleveland Browns may be loaded, but Patrick Mahomes, quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, still knows whom he has to beat. And his biggest contest is still the patriot and Ageless wonder QB Tom Brady.
"For me, we know that this is the team to beat. That's the team you need to go through if you want to reach your goal The ultimate goal is to win a Super Bowl and win, "said Mahomes, announcing a partnership with Oakley to support the brand's new Prizm lens technology. "We will do everything we can to prepare ourselves, if we have the opportunity, hopefully next year, this coming season, to use this and find a way to win."
Mahomes nearly made the AFC championship game in January, but Brady kept contacting him. So Mahomes has been training even more in the off-season this season to beat his 5,097 overtaking places and 50 TD from last year.
Does the avocado ice cream mean 24-7 and daily TB12 electrolytes? Not exactly, but he has changed things so he can try to catch Tom Terrific.
Watching the Competition
The Pats are Mahomes's team to beat, but he knows they are not the AFC's only creepy squad. Mahomes recognizes that Cleveland (yes, Cleveland) could be a Juggernaut this season after working for Odell Beckham Jr. with Jarvis Landry and QB Baker Mayfield. "He (Odell) is such a talented player, someone who has a lot of success in the NFL," says Mahomes. "For the Browns to take all these steps and get all these players, I realize it's an exciting time for Cleveland."
And while the Chiefs are not facing the Browns next season, Mahomes could experience it. "I'm looking forward to meeting these guys," he says. "Probably in the playoffs at a given time."
