Patrick Mahomes plays despite ankle sprain Leading Kansas City to Super Bowl after incredible 23-20 win vs Bengals at NFL Championship game

The Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, got injured in the divisional round matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week.

The quarterback left the pitch hobbling during the second half of the playoff game. Later, the MRI diagnosed it as a high ankle sprain, which didn’t pose any threat to the AFC championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Furthermore, a negative x-ray result allowed the star to play for the Chiefs in their fifth game against the Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium, which resulted in a win for the host.

How was Patrick Mahomes’ performance last night?

The Chiefs took a risk by playing their crucial player in the high-voltage game despite his existing minor ankle sprain. Prior to the game, the two opponents had already fought virtually, raising the temperature. However, Patrick showed no weakness during the play and led his team to its third Super Bowl appearance in the last five seasons.

The 27-year-old superstar accumulated 326 passing yards with a 67% completion rate and scored two touchdowns against the Bengals. The game was won by the Chiefs by a thrilling 23-20 score.

His current season with the Chiefs has rendered him an indispensable cog in the system. The 2019 Super Bowl champion threw for 5250 yards on an average of 8.1 yards per attempt, with 41 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season. His standout performance propelled the Chiefs to their third Super Bowl ring in franchise history.

After two weeks, the Chiefs will face the flying Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. In the meantime, Mahomes would be expected to be fully fit for the Super Bowl. He is already one step ahead in the MVP competition; another Mahomes show will ensure this honor for the second time.
