Patrick Mahomes has had many iconic passes in his illustrious career, though one stands above the rest in his mind.

Appearing on First Things First, Mahomes was asked about his favorite non-Super Bowl play. The famed 'Jet Chip Wasp' third-down conversion to Tyreek Hill likely takes the cake in all-time plays for the three-time Super Bowl MVP, but a different completion to Hill is Mahomes' favorite play.

See what he had to say below.

"I always say the fourth-and-seven against the Ravens in my first year starting," said Mahomes. He hurled a down-field completion to Hill, ultimately helping the Chiefs win the game late.

As Mahomes explains, "That was kind of that first year when I'm trying to prove myself...to have that play in that moment was definitely a big one.

While Mahomes would have likely been a legend even if the pass fell to the turf, he admits, "I think that kind of jumpstarted my career."

The Chiefs have had many great battles with the Ravens since Mahomes came into the league, notably winning last year's AFC Championship game in Baltimore. These teams square off in Week 1 in Kansas City this year, entering the 2024-25 season as the two favorites to win the AFC.

Lamar Jackson has yet to reach a Super Bowl, but he's the youngest two-time MVP in NFL history. His story is directly tired to Mahomes', though Jackson has yet to emerge victorious at the end of the run. Until he beats Mahomes, he'll continue to be a footnote in the Chiefs' QB's story.
