Kansas City Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a quote going viral after the team's blowout loss against the Titans on Sunday

Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers were set for an amazing duel, but that is no longer happening following Rodgers testing positive for COVID-19.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback was pretty upet by Wednesday’s developments in the team’s pre-practice press conference, saying he was looking forward to the challenge of playing against an all time great.

“It’s definitely disappointing,” Mahomes told reporters of Rodgers’ upcoming absence. “When you get to see an all-time great like him play and I’ve kind of watched his game for a long time, feeling that I play a similar style, you always want to compete against the best. Hopefully, he’s healthy, it’s not too bad, I’m sure he’ll come back from it stronger than he was before.”

Packers’ backup quarterback Jordan Love is likely to make his first NFL start.

Mahomes said he was impressed by what he saw of his college film, and that Green Bay’s offense is primed to perform whether Rodgers is available or not.

“I got to watch some games he played in college, obviously, and he was slinging it around the field making a lot of plays happen,” Mahomes explained. “What he’s done in the preseason, he had a great preseason and played really well, so I’m sure he’ll be ready. They have a great offense; he’ll be able to step in and do what he can to have success.”

Sounds like Mahomes is still doing his best to sell the matchup.

Truth is without Rodgers it’s no longer must watch television.
