Patrick Mahomes Dispatches Bengals On Sprained Ankle

The Chiefs have the incredible durability of Patrick Mahomes to thank for their third Super Bowl appearance in four seasons.

Kansas City reached Super Bowl LVII with a hard-fought 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFC Championship Game.

Patrick Mahomes played on a high ankle sprain and made the instrumental play to secure victory with seconds left. His five yard scramble put them in a position for 45-yard Butker field goal which finally downed the Bengals.

“I just tried to do whatever I could to win, and obviously, there were times where you could see that it wouldn’t let me do what I wanted to,” Mahomes said. “But I was able to do enough on that last play to get the first down and get myself out of bounds and try to give Harrison the chance to win. Obviously, we got the flag, and [Ossai] pushed me, pushed me pretty late there.

“I definitely didn’t feel good. I think the worst one was when I fumbled. I tried to pick it up, and that was probably the worst I tweaked it during the game. They got me close as they could to 100 percent. Then I just battled through, and I’ll have a few more weeks to get it ready.”

Patrick Mahomes finished with 29-of-43 passing for 326 yards, two touchdowns, no interceptions and one fumble.

“People don’t realize how hurt he was,” general manager Brett Veach said. “We all saw the injury. High ankles are terrible injuries, and sometimes guys miss two, three weeks, and he was out there and running for a first down and a big play in the game that got us in field goal range.

“But it just adds to an already great legacy.”
