Josh Allen challenges Patrick Mahomes to see who can throw a football farther

New, comments

Oh, man!

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was on Barstool Radio today from Atlanta and Super Bowl week. As part of the appearance, Allen challenged Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to see who can throw the ball farther.

“I’ve seen these things with Josh, but I’m going to say I believe I have the stronger arm,” Mahomes said last year when asked about Allen. “I’ve never seen anyone throw harder than me with the football. Until I see it in person, I believe I have the stronger arm.”

Mahomes and Allen are both known for their exceptional arm strength.

There is video of Allen throwing the ball 77 yards before entering the NFL. The Chiefs quarterback once told the Kansas City Star he has thrown a football 85 yards, but that was wind-assisted

“The furthest I have even thrown the ball was 85 yards,” Mahomes said. “But I had a little wind at my back, so I don’t claim that one. At my Pro Day, I threw it like 80 if it was windy, but I didn’t throw it as good as I could have. It was wobbling.”
