From no-look passes to last-minute left-handed lobs: Patrick Mahomes is a freakish, generational talent. Oh, and let's not forget he's a Super Bowl winner at just 24 years old.
But it's the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback's latest skill during a practice session that has left NFL fans in awe.
With the NFL season on the brink of a sensational return, vision has emerged on social media of Mahomes testing out a behind-the-back pass direct from the snap.

The highly-impressive piece of skill is an idea Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid have flirted with before.
In a 2019 training camp, a young Mahomes was seen testing out the skill during a play.
While the 6 foot 3 inch superstar's ability is unquestionable, we're still yet to see him pull off the skill in an actual NFL game.
That could be about to change, though.
Also, how about the ol' play-action roll out for a behind-the-back toss? Gotta test out the new stuff now. #Chiefs pic.twitter.com/wwAnddBKqq

"He tries it all the time because he keeps lobbying for coach Reid to put it in the system," backup quarterback Chad Henne told the NFL Network.
"He tells coach Reid, 'I can option this way and then throw it back this way', and I'm like, 'Ahhh, let's just take care of the ball.'"
With all 32 teams itching to get back on the field amid the coronavirus pandemic, it appears Mahomes has had more time than ever to refine his crafty behind-the-back pass.
And while their Super Bowl hangovers are now a thing of the past, the Chiefs head into the revamped NFL season as hot favourites to go back-to-back.
For the neutrals, we're just praying Mahomes continues his red-hot run of form.
And if we get to see him pull off one of the greatest pieces of skill in the process, then even better.
