The arm strength was one of several attributes that made quarterback Patrick Mahomes the Chiefs’ first-round draft pick in April.
He showed it off Thursday in the Chiefs’ preseason finale.
Mahomes connected with wide receiver Demarcus Robinson on a pair of deep passes in the first half.
He hit Robinson in stride on a skinny post route for a 53-yard gain in the first quarter. That ball traveled nearly 60 yards in the air.

Mahomes received the start against the Titans with the regulars getting the night off.
