“[Texas Tech] has run some plays that the Chiefs have run, so we’ve prepared for about everything we possibly thought we could see,” Patterson told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “The way [Texas Tech] is doing the RPOs (run/pass options) and all the different offensive things they’re doing in Kansas City then it’s… I like my job, so you do whatever you have to do.”
Facing the best total offense (591.4 yards per game; No. 1 nationally) and one of the most productive passing offenses (407.6 yards; No. 2) in college football requires some extra prep.
Patterson added that he isn’t surprised by the early success Mahomes or former Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield have found in the NFL as rookies.
“They play at a high level and they have confidence in themselves,” Patterson said. “In Patrick’s case, he’s really handling it well. He looks very humble playing, but he plays at a high level. How he handles himself and does things? I’ve been very impressed.”
