It didn’t take Patrick Mahomes long to take the NFL by storm, but maybe his finest moment so far came in the divisional round of the 2020 playoffs.
Down 24-0 in the second quarter to the Houston Texans, Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to a meteoric comeback, claiming a 51-31 victory at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs’ season, of course, ended with a Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers.
And Mahomes was rewarded earlier this week with a massive 10-year, $400 million contract.
DeAndre Hopkins, now of the Arizona Cardinals, was on that Texans team that blew the lead to KC. And when he caught wind of Mahomes’ new deal, he took it as an opportunity to roast his former team.

Honestly, it’s a fair point from Hopkins.
