Patrick Mahomes on QB Rivals, Brady Advice & Curry Comps | New Heights w/Jason & Travis Kelce |EP 15

On the fifteenth episode of New Heights, Jason and Travis finally got to sit down and have an incredible conversation with 4-time pro bowler, NFL MVP, and Super Bowl Champion Quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes.

Quick reminder, if you missed our previous interview with Eagles QB Jalen Hurts make sure you check it out here:

In this episode, Jason and Travis get Pat to explain why the Chiefs might not be running the QB sneak any time soon. We also dive into our most heated New Heights debate, who has the best fast food burger, the insane backstory about how he crushed his draft interview with Andy Reid, how his relationship with Alex Smith made him a better pro, and the legendary first meeting that led to his bromance with Travis.

The guys also get the never before heard story of how Pat basically drafted himself in 2017, how he’s adjusted to running an offense with a Tight End, why his greatest rival might be the teleprompter, and his welcome to the NFL moment playing against Tom Brady.

We also have some incredible stories behind his first start as a Chief: how he feels about all those wild comebacks, his thoughts on all the MVP chatter, and all the comparisons to Michael Jordan and Steph Curry.

Patrick also shares the superstitions he’s kept with him since his rookie year, what rivalries he’s got with other QBs, who is on his QB, Mt. Rushmore, and why Travis might not be the greatest partner in beer pong.
