If Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen challenge each other to throw-offs enough perhaps it will finally happen.
Mahomes threw out the latest challenge on a SportsCenter Madden NFL 21 special after being asked about trailing the Buffalo Bills QB in throw power. The EA Sports game gave Allen a 99 rating while Mahomes was given a 97. Mahomes acknowledged Allen’s strong arm, but once again proposed a throw-off to settle the argument once and for all.
“Dude, obviously Josh has an extremely strong arm, but I’ve yet to see someone have a stronger arm than me,” Mahomes said. “Maybe we can line up… I know we talked about maybe having a throw-off and then we can prove who really has the strongest arm.”
When asked if he would win, Mahomes said he was confident in his ability to throw the ball at least 80-85 yards.
“I have the ultimate belief in myself. I mean he does have a strong arm, but if I put it out there like 80-85 yards… If he beats that he beats it.”
Mahomes and Allen have talked about a potential throwing contest since last season.
Barstool Sports’ Pardon My Take asked Allen in February of 2019 who could throw a ball further. The quarterback simply responded, “We can find out.”
Mahomes was quick to respond in 2019. Much like he said on Friday night, Mahomes believes it would take a throw of at least 85 yards to defeat him.
“Josh is a great dude but no one that I’ve known has been able to throw a ball farther than me,” Mahomes said on a potential throw-off in 2019. “I’ve never seen Josh throw in person but maybe next offseason we can set something up (to see who can throw further). Hopefully I can get him to come down to Kansas City, and we can do something for charity. It’s going to take at least 85 yards to win (the throw-off).”
A throw-off in-season is unlikely, but Bills and Chiefs fans will be able to see the two quarterback duel this season when Buffalo hosts Kansas City on Thursday Night Football on October 15.
