Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a ridiculously strong right arm, which he used to throw for 50 touchdowns and win the NFL MVP in 2018.
And on Friday, Mahomes used that arm to… throw a football out of Arrowhead Stadium.
Kansas City’s 41 Action News had a helicopter get video of Mahomes’ throw:

Arrowhead stadium’s architectural height is 260 feet (that’s 86 yards). Whether that’s from field level or not that’s insane

So, that’s neat, but it’s unclear why Mahomes did this. The best guess is that it’s in response to this tweet from Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr:
😂😂😂😂 mannnn where AR12 and Pat 15 attt!!!! Telll em we need to have a throw offff https://t.co/ljSCLSpUkI

Now we wait to see if he can have a throw a ball “over them mountains” like Uncle Rico.
