Recently on “The Carton Show,” Craig Thung discussed the Chiefs’ offense and how he believes they will throw the ball down the field more.

“That’s the whole reason you brought in Hollywood Brown and you drafted Xavier Worthy from Texas, who runs 4.2. … Andy Reid, his entire coaching career, has always believed in throwing the ball deep and spreading the offense more. They weren’t built to do that last year. They’re not going to do three-and-outs with a dink and dunk offense. If the defense has to respect that deep threat, it changes everything for their offense.”

On passes longer than 20 yards last season, Mahomes had a 27.9 percent completion rate with just one touchdown and four interceptions.

Compare that to his first five seasons (2018-2022), when Mahomes completed 40.8% of his passes of 20-plus yards downfield, with 42 touchdowns and just 14 interceptions.

Mahomes will throw far, Chargers predict

Despite only throwing the ball on 57.4 percent of his snaps, Tagovailoa still managed to rack up the most passing yards in a single season. The Dolphins ranked 15th—basically in the middle of the pack—in passing percentage.

Miami will bring Odell Beckham Jr. to complement a large stacked studio, including Tyreek Hill And Jaylen Waddle.
