At the moment there are just a handful of young promising quarterbacks in the league. Kyler Murray, Lamar Jackson, Deshaun Watson, Josh Allen, and of course, Patrick Mahomes fall in this category. The last two names, in particular, were both drafted in the 2017 NFL draft. Allen (seventh overall) went to the Bills while Mahomes (tenth overall) went to the Kansas City Chiefs. The rest, as they say, is history.

Josh Allen open to the idea of having a ‘throw-off’ battle with Patrick Mahomes

Despite their on-field rivalry, Allen and Mahomes remain cordial with each other. These two have been constantly debating their Madden NFL 21 ratings since the game was announced in July.

Mahomes joined the elite Madden NFL 99 gang for the first time in his career. However, the creators at EA Sports gave Allen a perfect thrower rating of 99, which was more than what Mahomes was assigned. This led to a constant to-and-fro between these two athletes with fans demanding a sensational ‘throw-off’ to settle the debate once and for all.
