Most of the on-field messages from Chief Quarterback Patrick Mahomes come from his hands or his feet. On Monday night, he sent another message with his fingers.

After throwing his final touchdown pass on the night against the Ravens, Kansas City won 34–20 in one game Four counted on his right hand Before transitioning to a Jordan-style hut. Was it a reference to the fact that he dropped to number 4 on the NFL’s top 100 players list?

I think I had four touchdowns at that time, Mahomes said that this question was asked after the game.

He is right, but there was definitely another message. When his place in the list was announced, They noted it On twitter

As we explained at the time, his number 4 appearance in the countdown that came out in late July came from the process that leads to the annual list. The league asked players a list of the top 20 players in the league during the 2019 regular season. Since Mahomes missed several games last year due to a knee injury, he lacked the same sizzle in 2018. Instead, Ravenous quarterback Lamar Jackson (No. 1 on the list) and Seahawk quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 2) advanced to the top. Because, during the 2019 season, they were the two most receiving MVP buzz. (Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald came in at No. 3) Eventually, Jackson won the 2019 regular season MVP award, receiving all 50 votes.

Those details don’t matter when it comes to finding inspiration, and when standing atop the NFL’s mountain and welcoming all possible chips on the shoulder.

Confirming the fact that Mahomes was referencing his place in the top-100 list, the fact that, last year, Mahom counted to 10 after throwing a touchdown pass Sunday night against the Bears. It was a more obvious reference to the fact that he picked eight spots on the 2017 draft board behind No. 10, so far-baked Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky.

This is a really broad point. While no one would accuse Mahomes of insulting him, he did easily handle the quarterback-led teams overall in 2017 and the quarterback-led team topped the top-100 list.
