Surely this isn't how they drew it up.

For a player who wows football fans on a weekly basis, Patrick Mahomes found a new way to stand out on Sunday. With his Chiefs facing first-and-goal early against the Philadelphia Eagles, the Kansas City quarterback took a shotgun snap and rolled to his right. 

He found running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire near the goal line and had only one way to deliver the ball safely. With a bowling toss. Or was that a skeeball throw? A softball riseball maybe?

However you describe it, Mahomes' underhanded toss for a score was one of a kind. And a play that would make almost any coach who doesn't employ Mahomes to run his offense cringe. But this is the man who's made no-look passes in the NFL a thing. Head coach Andy Reid is surely just fine with his quarterback's latest foray into wizardry, especially after winning 42-30.  

The only question: Is this how they practiced it?
