Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes throws bomb to Sammy Watkins to continue Kansas City scoring
Although they may have gotten off to a slow start, the Kansas City Chiefs are now clicking on all cylinders. This time, it was wide receiver Sammy Watkins that managed to do the bidding for quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes found Watkins for a 60-yard bomb to extend their lead 35-17 midway through the fourth quarter, via NFL Twitter:

The Chiefs have proven to be quite the comeback kings in recent weeks. They came back down by 24 points in the divisional round against the Houston Texans. Their efforts versus the Tennessee Titans in this AFC Conference Championship have only served to solidify this notion.
Mahomes has done a stellar job of spreading the wealth among his vast arsenal of weapons. Watkins has largely been overlooked in the 2019 NFL season. That’s due to speedsters in his receiving corps like Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hrdman, Watkins is showing that he is still a force to be reckoned with when his number is called.
