What surprised me the most is that I feel like I’m a pretty heavy dude and I feel like he threw me pretty easily there. So, he is a strong guy, I think it was like 96,” Mahomes said, talking about Maliek. The Chiefs QB then joked that he would like to stay away from Maliek whenever he is in town.

“I’ll try to stay away from him the next time we play him,” Mahomes added. The incident happened in the second quarter of the Chiefs‘ clash with the Texans on Sunday Night Football in Week 15.

The Chiefs center Creed Humphrey snapped the ball to Mahomes on a second-and-four situation, but the QB failed to catch it.

As he was getting up after retrieving the ball from the ground, Collins rushed towards him and pulled him to the turf from behind. The sack looked brutal in slow motion and must have rattled Mahomes for a bit. But he got up, dusted himself and led his team to the divisional title.

Division clinched, again

Patrick Mahomes got up from the sack and galvanized his team for the remainder of the game. The Chiefs trailed the Texans almost the entire game but somehow sneaked their noses in front in the fourth quarter.

The Texans came back with a field goal and forced OT by making a stop to the Chiefs’ last drive outside the kicking range of the Chiefs’ placekicker Harrison Butker.

Mahomes and the Chiefs went on to win the game after just a single drive in OT. And with it, the franchise claimed its seventh-straight AFC West divisional title. The Chiefs QB might have joked about the way he was sacked on that play in the second quarter, but his wife Brittany was less than impressed.

She asked if the QBs can be sacked in the way Mahomes was, saying, “the inconsistency is BS”. Collins did leave an impression on both of them after all.
