Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has received a fair amount of praise over the course of his record-breaking season. Everyone from coaches Jon Gruden and Bill Belichick to players like Aaron Rodgers have complimented Mahomes strong arm and play-making abilities.

Similarly, Ravens defensive coordinator Don "Wink" Martindale has dished out his share of flattery, like when he said Baker Mayfield is the Brett Favre of this era. But, this time around it's Mahomes who is getting compared to another Hall of Fame quarterback.

"I think Mahomes is (Joe) Montana — I'm talking about the San Francisco Montana and not the Kansas City Montana," Martindale said ahead of the team's Week 14 contest against Kansas City, via ESPN. "I think how everything is cyclical and history repeats itself. I think you're seeing that combination between Andy (Reid) and Mahomes of Montana and Bill Walsh. I really do."

Mahomes has completed 67.5 percent of his passes and tallied a league-high 37 touchdown passes to lead the Chiefs to a 9-2 record. He has thrown four or more touchdowns in six games this season and racked-up an NFL-leading 3,628 passing yards. Meanwhile, Rodgers’ Packers are in third place of the NFC North with a 4-5-1 record. The two-time MVP has registered 19 touchdowns and just one interception in 10 games. The Packers will face the Vikings in Week 12 action Sunday while the Chiefs are on a bye.

Patrick Mahomes Is Ready to Show Off His Fastball. Last April, when the Chiefs traded up to draft Patrick Mahomes No. 10 out of Texas Tech, he became their quarterback -in-waiting.

Montana finished his illustrious career with the Chiefs after 14 years with the 49ers organization and is considered one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history.

Mahomes, in his first season as a starter, is also building an impressive resume to live up to the likes of Montana. He continues to be a front-runner for the MVP award after throwing 41 touchdown passes — tied for the second most through 12 games in league history — and leading the league's most potent offense.

Martindale has to prepare Baltimore's defensive unit, the best in the NFL, to face Mahomes and the league's highest-scoring offense. The Chiefs have scored 37 points per game, while the Ravens' lead the NFL in fewest yards (281.7) and points allowed (17.8).

It's a tall task, but it leaves the Ravens excited for the matchup. Mahomes has largely played mistake-free but does have 10 interceptions — three were against the Rams on Nov. 19 — and seven fumbles this season.
