NFL Hall of Famer Randy Moss believes we are seeing the beginning of two legendary careers in Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
On Saturday morning, Moss said he feels like the Mahomes/Allen rivalry in the AFC is going to be this generation’s version of the Tom Brady/Peyton Manning rivalry.
Interesting: @RandyMoss said on ESPN’s Postseason NFL Countdown that Josh Allen-Patrick Mahomes could be this generation’s Peyton Manning-Tom Brady.

Brady and Manning played each other 17 times from 2001-2015, including five meetings in the playoffs (Brady was 11-6 against Manning).
Sunday’s game between the Bills and the Chiefs will mark the fourth meeting between Mahomes and Allen.
So far, Mahomes has a 2-1 advantage in the young rivalry. Allen’s one win against Mahomes came earlier this season.
Mahomes’ last win against Allen came in the AFC Championship game last season.
If Mahomes and Allen truly are the next Brady/Peyton, then it looks like Mahomes is going to play the role of Brady.
After all, Mahomes won his first Super Bowl at age 24, the same age that Brady won his first Super Bowl.
