His extraordinary ability to extend plays with his legs and make magic happen outside of the pocket sets Mahomes apart. His uncanny knack for improvisation and lightning-fast decision-making allows him to turn potential sacks into game-changing plays downfield. Against a ferocious pass rush like the 49ers’, Mahomes’ scrambling ability becomes a vital asset, giving him the agility to evade pressure and keep plays alive.

Thriving under pressure

While Young and Bosa pose a significant threat, Mahomes has shown time and time again that he thrives under pressure. His ability to identify and exploit weaknesses in the defense, coupled with his exceptional arm talent, makes him a nightmare for opposing defenses. Against the 49ers’ pass rush, Mahomes will look to utilize his mobility to buy time in the pocket, allowing his receivers to get open downfield and capitalize on big-play opportunities.
