Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was slow to get going in Thursday night’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, but once he led his team into the red zone, it was six points or a bust.
Down 10-0 with about 11:48 left in the second quarter, Mahomes rolled to his right and dodged some potential Chargers tacklers.
Somehow, he found running back Jerick McKinnon in space with a ridiculous handgun throw.
McKinnon caught it at the 2-yard line and ran it for a touchdown.

The replay of the pass showed just how wild the handgun throw was. McKinnon was a blocker on the play before breaking free and getting between the Chargers secondaries to catch the pass.
Los Angeles, however, had a 10-7 halftime lead.
