QB Patrick Mahomes has got due credit and respect from one of the best head coaches: Bill Belichick before the Patriots vs the Chiefs clash. The Chiefs are going to lock horns against the Patriots after a gap of three years. In their last encounter, the Chiefs rolled over the Patriots 26-10 in October 2020. Yes, it has been three years since the humiliating loss but Belichick duly agrees that Mahomes has become even better with time.
The Chiefs won the last Super Bowl under the leadership of Patrick Mahomes. His performance this season is speaking volumes as the Red Army is just inches away from securing a playoff spot this time too. One hurdle remains, the battle against the Patriots.

The Patriots are officially out of the playoff race and will play to save their respect and dignity. After losing ten out of thirteen matches this season, the six-time Super Bowl champion team has looked completely out of color. While they won their last game against the Steelers 21-18 and have gotten much-needed confidence, how will the side prepare to stand their guard against the Chiefs?
In a recent presser, a reporter shed light on the long-awaited matchup against the Chiefs and asked Belichick, “It’s been a while since he has faced off, What has changed in his game and how he has elevated himself since last time you played?” Belichick took a long breath and acknowledged, “He has done pretty good, He does everything well”. Well, the fans do agree with Belichick with this one as magic always happens when Mahomes gets the ball in his hands.
