Brock Purdy Calls Mahomes '1 of the Best to Ever Do It' After 49ers' Super Bowl Loss

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy knows he went to battle with a future Hall of Fame signal-caller on Sunday night at Allegiant Stadium.

Following the 49ers' 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, Purdy was quick to praise Patrick Mahomes, who he dubbed "one of the best to ever do it," while speaking with reporters after the game.

"One of the best to ever do it, honestly," Purdy said. "... He's a baller."

Despite throwing an interception to kick off the third quarter, Mahomes was brilliant in Sunday's title game, throwing for 333 yards and two touchdowns, in addition to rushing for 66 yards en route to being named Super Bowl MVP for the third time in his career.
