When it comes to top players in the NFL, quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs are two of the all-time best at their respective positions.
Mahomes and Kelce are coming off a Week 3 game in which they helped the Chiefs defeat a miserable Chicago Bears team by 31 points.
ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky came away from the latest performance of this duo thoroughly impressed, but it probably isn’t for a reason that most noticed while watching the game live this past Sunday.

Orlovsky couldn’t contain his excitement when discussing a play he shared on Wednesday from a Kansas City offensive drive in Week 3.
In his post, the ESPN analyst did his best to share with the world how much Mahomes and Kelce are on the same exact page when they’re out on the field together each week.
In the play he shared, Orlovsky points out how Kelce likely cut off his planned route to the corner of the left side of the field in order to avoid a defender, and instead of throwing the ball to the original planned spot, Mahomes noticed the same thing the tight end saw, and he put the football right in Kelce’s bread basket.
It’s this kind of excellence that has resulted in the Chiefs being able to appear in three of the last four Super Bowls and win two of them.
Mahomes and Kelce already possess enough physical tools to excel at their craft in the NFL, but it’s the mental skills of this duo that have allowed them to separate from their peers in terms of greatness.
