“[The Eagles have] a special type of defense, and that’s why they’re in this game,” Mahomes said. “And we understand the D-Line. They’re on a historic pace for sacks and rushing the passer, but they’re also good against the run. So, we just have to make sure that we execute, and it’s gonna be a big offensive line game, and them setting the tone against a great defense. And then for me, getting the ball in my hand, creating positive plays and trying to prevent those negative ones, which they’ve seemed to thrive on.”

During the interview, Mahomes broke down what his offense needs to do against the Eagles’ stifling defense.

Additionally, despite still being young himself, the Super Bowl LIV champ and 2018 NFL MVP revealed the insight he’s shared with his younger teammates.

“I’ve kind of emphasized to those guys is that you’re young, you’re a rookie, but you’ve played a full season,” Mahomes said. “Now you’re a one-year vet… and you never know if you’re gonna be back in this game.”
