Patrick Mahomes says he thinks his Kansas City Chiefs can recreate the run Tom Brady had during his time with the Patriots.
The quarterback told Kansas City's 610 Sports Radio's The Drive his thoughts on the big picture after he was asked about the chances of a dynasty like Brady's Pats, which won six Super Bowls in nine appearances in the big game from 2001 until 2019. (Brady's era with the Pats ended earlier this year when he signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.)
Mahomes - who ended the team's 50-year Super Bowl drought earlier this year with a win over the San Francisco 49ers - said that 'it's going to take everybody in the organization, top-down, to do something like that,' crediting the Pats' attention to detail under head coach Bill Belichick.

'If you watch how they run their organization, how they run their football team, how they're coached, how they play ... they give 120 percent every single rep, every single practice,' said Mahomes, who signed a 10-year, $503 million contract extension with the team this past summer.
'That's what we have to try to do, try to strive for,' he said, 'that's why it doesn't happen a lot in the NFL - it's because you can't have that culture every single year it seems like.'
Belichick was at a loss for words when asked about Mahomes after he again dominated on the national stage Monday, tossing four touchdowns and running in another in his team's 34-20 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football.
'All the superlatives that have been said about him, I'd just be repeating them all,' Belichick told
of Mahomes, who achieved a massive feat in becoming the fastest-ever NFL player to reach the 10,000 passing yard milestone, needing just 34 games to do so.
