Chiefs’ Orlando Brown on Eagles’ Super Bowl passing pass: ‘Zero sacks, put it on a T-shirt’

Orlando Brown Jr. channeled his inner Tony Soprano after the Chiefs’ Super Bowl victory over the Eagles. Brown, a starter on the Chiefs’ offensive line, tweeted a photo of the fictional mob boss after Kansas City won 38-35. The tweet also included a reference to the dominating performance put up by him and the rest of the Chiefs’ offensive line against Philadelphia’s formidable passing rush.

“0 bags, put it on a f—–g t-shirt!!!!” brown wrote.

Like Soprano, Brown and his cohorts took no prisoners on Sunday night. The Eagles, who during the regular season recorded the third-most sacks of any team in NFL history, never once sacked Patrick Mahomes. This was in stark contrast to two years ago, when Mahomes was constantly on the run during Kansas City’s 31-9 loss to Tampa Bay in Super Bowl LV.

Mahomes certainly built on his offensive line’s success on Sunday night. He went 21-of-27 while throwing three touchdown passes en route to winning his second Super Bowl MVP trophy.

“This is a historic offensive line,” Brown said after the Super Bowl. “You look at what coach (Andy) Reid, (offensive line coach) Andy Heck, (offensive coordinator Eric) Bieniemy, the position they put us up front to allow us to have the consistency that we have week in and week out. able to stand up here as a world champion, none of that is possible without everyone understanding the plan, they keep putting us in a great position, they know the kind of talent they have, they know the leadership they have.

“We’re very proud to be the powerhouse and as you’re going into this game, the circumstances, everything is going to be very high, it’s the Super Bowl, Patrick is dealing with an ankle injury. ‘re going to have to pass in certain situations. It wasn’t pretty or perfect, but it was enough to win the game and that’s what matters.”

The line also paved the way for the Chiefs to rush for 158 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries. The biggest benefactor here was rookie running back Isiah Pacheco, who led both teams with 76 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries.

Philadelphia’s inability to get to Mahomes was similar to the problems the Eagles had in their first Super Bowl. After sacking Raiders quarterback Jim Plunkett eight times during their regular season meeting, the Eagles only sacked him once in Super Bowl XV. The result was an MVP performance for Plunkett, who as the Mahomes on Sunday night threw three touchdowns without an interception.

The Eagles were on the cusp of becoming the first team to win the Super Bowl after recording 70 sacks in one season. Instead, they joined the 1984 Bears and 1989 Vikings as teams with 70 sacks that fell short.
