"We do not have to do anything else other than being ourselves," Mahomes began. "I truly believe that. If we just be ourselves and trust in each other, we will go down there, we can put points up, we can do what we do."

"Don't try to go out there and do everything for yourself. Believe in your teammate. Believe in each other. And when we get these opportunities, we'll go down and find a way to win the game. Let's do it right here. Let's go."

 

Mahomes' call to action worked, as the Chiefs navigated a 13-play, 79-yard drive in two minutes to take the lead with a one-yard touchdown run from Darrel Williams with just 20 seconds remaining, stealing the win from the Lions in Detroit.

NFL fans already knew Mahomes was a special player, but moments like his rallying speech on Sunday have Chiefs fans excited that they might have a dynasty coming together in Kansas City.
