We are all fully aware watching the Super Bowl 55 that Patrick Mahomes was running for his life during the Chiefs 31-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Well how much was Mahomes running? Well he ran for a total of 497 yards before throwing the ball or being sacked the most ever recorded by Next Gen Stats.
The Buccaneers pass rush forced Patrick Mahomes to bail out of the pocket and scramble all over the field.

Actually a very nutty stat. I know this stat has only been in existence since 2016 but there hasn’t been many games in my life where I had watched a combination of pressure and mobile QB at the same time. Mahomes was running for his life. And at the end all the running equated in absolutely nothing.
