Patrick Mahomes, the standout quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, showcased not only his football prowess but also an uncanny ability to predict plays during the ManningCast of Monday Night Football featuring the Denver Broncos and Buffalo Bills.
As a Super Bowl champion and multiple-time Pro-Bowler, Mahomes has solidified his status as one of the NFL’s prominent figures.
However, during the ManningCast, he left viewers wondering if he possesses psychic abilities as well.
In a remarkable display, Mahomes accurately forecasted a three-play sequence that ultimately led to a Broncos touchdown.
Even the impressive touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Courtland Sutton left Mahomes and the Mannings mildly impressed, while the internet erupted with amazement at the difficulty of the play.
The second-quarter play, featuring a vintage Wilson scramble and a precise throw to the left corner of the end zone, secured a spot on the Sportscenter Top 10 plays list for the evening and provided the Broncos with a substantial lead.

Beyond the spectacle of the play, Mahomes’s prediction underscored his deep understanding of football strategy.
Prior to the three-play series, he foresaw that the Broncos would run the ball twice before executing a play-action – a prediction that played out exactly as he anticipated.
Given the recent matchup between the Chiefs and the Broncos, where Kansas City suffered a notable defeat just two weeks prior, Mahomes’s familiarity with the Broncos’ offense becomes apparent.
The loss marked the end of a six-game winning streak for the Chiefs, initiated after their initial home defeat against the Detroit Lions.
Amidst a stellar season, Mahomes continues to shine, boasting a career-high 68 percent completion rate and accumulating 17 touchdowns against eight interceptions.
Notably, three of his interceptions this season occurred in clashes with the Broncos.
Looking ahead, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are set to face the Philadelphia Eagles in a Monday Night Football showdown this weekend.
