The rising big name clinched San Francisco’s 7th directly regular-season win over the Rams with a 52-yard pick out six.

He finished 10 of 15 passes for most effective 99 yards and a landing. So he’s now not getting this for the stats. He’s getting it for now not shrinking within the second, and for almost turning in what would had been an unforgettable second in his first NFL sport.

Play of the week: The Patrick Mahomes landing go to Clyde Edward-Helaire.
Mahomes has an instinctive aptitude for the dramatic. It’s at all times unique, by no means pressured. There’s a hair-on-fire high quality that makes each and every step and frame motion extra thrilling, inflicting the anticipation to achieve a crescendo simply sooner than Mahomes does one thing memorable.
He did it on Sunday night time, with every other uncanny second of working round as defenders couldn’t get to him, capped through an informal turn to a large open Edwards-Helaire.
It’s simple to take what Mahomes can do with no consideration. We by no means must. He does it like few if any ever have.
