Patrick Mahomes correctly predicted in 2017 he could comeback with just 13 seconds left

The Chiefs’ unbelievable 13-second comeback over the Bills in the 2021 AFC Divisional round of the playoffs will forever live in Kansas City sports lore. It’s one of the best games in NFL history and as it turns out, the clairvoyant Patrick Mahomes saw it coming.

No, seriously.

In a pre-draft interview with Good Morning Football, Mahomes talked about launching a ridiculously-long pass in his pro day and why he wanted to showcase his ability to hit a Hail Mary throw late in a game.

As Mahomes put it, he wanted to prove he could throw a quick five-yard pass to put his team in position before a Hail Mary attempt.

He wasn’t exactly right, as he threw a 19-yard pass to Tyreek Hill before a 25-yard pass up the seam to Travis Kelce to set up a 49-yard Harrison Butker field goal, but it’s still wild that he correctly predicted a 13-second comeback.

Three Super Bowls later and Mahomes has quickly established himself as the generation’s best player with years left to continue building his resume.

Chiefs fans everywhere are grateful Kansas City took a chance on the kid out of Texas Tech, and now we can look back on this glorious clip and smile.
