Keisean Nixon said he’s familiar with Patrick Mahomes’ game.
The Green Bay Packers and the Chiefs played a heck of a matchup on Sunday. Taylor Swift and Simone Biles were in attendance. It was Patrick Mahomes’ snowy Lambeau Field debut. There was controversial officiating. You know, perfect football stuff.
What’s more, Jordan Love grew up in real-time, and the Packers walked away with a sneaky good victory propelled by a late Keisean Nixon interception leading to a game-winning field goal.
Nixon says that paying attention to Mahomes’ tendencies gave him confidence that he would know which way the quarterback was throwing on his momentum-shifting throw.

Keisean Nixon on his late INT:
“We were watching mannerism tape earlier in the week and (Mahomes) tapped his knee and they put two off the ball and I'm like, 'Oh, I've seen this before.' I knew he was gonna run it and he ran it.” pic.twitter.com/NWOrNKb3yc
