Patrick Mahomes channeling his inner Michael Jordan
The Ravens had no answer for Mahomes in the Monday Night Football game. Mahomes had a performance to remember. After he scored the first touchdown of the game, the Ravens were in trouble. Mahomes picked the defense apart as he was able to find open receivers the entire game. It didn’t matter what defense the Ravens threw at him, Mahomes was going to find someone.
After Mahomes got his fourth overall touchdown during the game, he decided to channel his inner Michael Jordan and give the famous Jordan shrug. It was that kind of game for Mahomes as he did whatever he wanted to against Baltimore. The confidence was there for Mahomes as the game went on, and he was out there feeling unstoppable. It made sense for him to do the Jordan shrug because the Ravens could not find a way to contain him.
