Patrick Mahomes: Historic matchup vs. Jalen Hurts 'special'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Thirty-five years after Doug Williams became the first Black quarterback to start in the Super Bowl, this season's NFL championship game will have two Black starting quarterbacks for the first time.

Super Bowl LVII will feature Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles.

"To be on the world stage and have two Black quarterbacks start in the Super Bowl, I think it's special, and I've learned more and more about the history of the Black quarterback since I've been in this league,'' Mahomes said Thursday.
