Patrick Mahomes seems ready for the biggest challenge of his career, come the 12th of February. If the Chiefs go on to win the Super Bowl, it will be his third championship victory, and that’s something he’s desperately chasing. In the Super Bowl LVXIII Conference, Mahomes was seen on the podium taking on a tornado of questions. One of which was on the way he runs, something fans find somewhat peculiar.

In response to these questions about his running style, Mahomes revealed his secrets and said, “I think I’ve gotten better in my running form and faster as I’ve kind of been in the NFL. But it doesn’t look the prettiest so uh I think people think I’m slow. I think it’s kind of deceptive sometimes. I think the defense takes bad angles because they think they’re going to catch me faster than they do and so maybe that’s the secret to my speed is that I run not the way everybody else runs.” The Kansas City Chiefs are getting ready to take on the might of the San Francisco 49ers on the grandest stage of all and you can bet that Mahomes’ funny running style will have a major role to play in the game. With all that said, this is what the QB had to say about the glorious career he’s had as he makes his fourth Super Bowl appearance in 5 years.
