Mahomes want more quarterback sneak plays

One of the most indestructible combinations last year was the quarterback sneak played by Jalen Hurts and the Eagles.

Mahomes want more quarterback sneak plays

The essence of the combination is for the quarterback to move forward immediately after receiving the ball from the center to gain a yard or two. The defense almost always knows what is about to follow, but it is very difficult to stop an opponent when they have a strong offensive line and work cohesively.

The Eagles' last Super Bowl opponent Patrick Mahomes would also like to play quarterback sneak more often, but he's not sure head coach Andy Reid will let him. During the 2019 season, Mahomes dislocated his kneecap while performing that sneak.

"I always want to [perform the quarterback sneak] because I've never been stopped yet. Even when I injured my knee, I still scored on the first try. I'm sure [Reid] won't let me have that shenanigans unless winning the Super Bowl is on the line," Mahomes revealed.

Even then, Reid may be saving his quarterback. After all, the Lombardi Trophy was won without any snaps in February.
