Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is pulling out all the stops against an apparent, gullible New York Jets' defense. The star quarterback was able to pull off one of his cloak-and-dagger, underhand passes to tight end Travis Kelce to give the Chiefs a 21-9 lead as they head into halftime.

This isn't the first time that Mahomes has been able to pull of the stealthy maneuver in a contest, as he did so against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 3.

If Mahomes intends to make this a regularly deployed option in his arsenal, the opposing defenses will be in for a treat.
After being able to debut it against a top-tier defense in the Ravens, it makes sense to see the 2018 MVP go to it once more against a lowly Jets' defense. Mahomes and the Chiefs have performed exceptionally well so far against New York.
He has currently completed 17-of-20 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns.
