Breaking Down Patrick Mahomes’ Red Zone TD
By FirstDown PlayBook on Sep 26, 2018

So much goes into an NFL football play because the defenses are so well trained and are tuned into recognizing formation and personnel keys before the football is ever snapped. One of the steps to becoming a great NFL quarterback is understanding this and using it against the defense and their scheme.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had another record breaking day on Sunday as he surpassed Peyton Manning with thirteen touchdowns in the first three games of this young 2018 football season. On one of Mahomes’ touchdowns it is obvious that he is becoming an expert at not only what his team is responsible for but also what the defenders are being taught.

FirstDown PlayBook takes one of Patrick Mahomes’ red zone touchdowns and breaks it down for you in this short video where we talk about the personnel in the game and how there are a lot of hidden assists on this play that make it essentially an uncontested red zone touchdown.

FirstDown PlayBook will draw up all of the passing touchdowns from this record breaking day and have them in the FirstDown PlayBook “View By tag” area for all of our members by this Friday. Right now though, let’s break down how the Kansas City Chiefs executed this red zone touchdown in this short video.
