Patrick Mahomes didn't take long to show football fans he's all the way back from injury on Sunday against the Titans.

After missing two games due to a knee injury, Mahomes impressed in his first start back with the Chiefs, throwing for 446 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas City.

No throw was more impressive than an improvised jump-pass to wide receiver Mercole Hardman that came in the fourth quarter.

With a 22-20 lead and the ball on the Chiefs' own 30-yard line, Mahomes took the snap and immediately recognized the pocket collapsing around him. In response, Mahomes stepped up into his linemen and jumped to throw a pass over the middle to Hardman, who then out-ran what looked like the entirety of the Titans secondary to extend the Chiefs lead.

The throw was a reminder of Mahomes' tendency to do what no other quarterback in the league would think of attempting — from throwing a no-look pass to making a crucial completion with his off-hand.

On Twitter, fans were in awe of Mahomes' ability to make the play, and the boldness he had to even attempt it.

Unfortunately for Mahomes, the late score wasn't enough, as the Titans would storm back in the fourth quarter to win the game 35-32. But despite the loss, Mahomes made it clear that he would not be giving up his status as the reigning MVP without a fight.
