Efe Obada explains why Patrick Mahomes is harder to play against than Tom Brady

Efe Obada sacked Tom Brady this season and believes it’s easier to stop the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star than Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Brady and Mahomes will face each other in Sunday’s Super Bowl as they battle to be crowned world champions.

Carolina Panthers defensive end Obada came up against both QBs this season, and even managed to bring Brady down.

Brady, 43, has never been known as a mobile quarterback despite his incredible success in the NFL.

Mahomes, meanwhile, appears to be just as dangerous with his feet as he is with his powerful and accurate arm.

And Obada, who spent part of his youth in London, explains why it is slightly easier to face Brady over last year’s Super Bowl winner Mahomes.

“In a normal scenario I could say it would be harder for a mobile quarterback but Tom Brady isn't just a pocket passer,” Obada said.

“He's able he's able to break down defenses and know where the weaknesses are and expose that.

“For me personally, it’s definitely harder to play against a mobile quarterback, because once they're able to expand plays and then got explosive receivers, that can be dangerous and Mahomes has an arm that can get it deep while on the run.

“The Bucs need to keep acknowledging that they are gifted and acknowledge their talents and just kind of go after them, just keep Mahomes in the pocket.
