Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes knows how to get his targets the ball. That was on full display when a former Green Bay Packers weapon scored a touchdown off of a pass from Mahomes late in the first half of Sunday night’s Super Bowl 58. Former Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling found himself wide open in the end zone for a touchdown. According to Next Gen Stats, Valdes-Scantling was so alone, that he instantly became the third third-most-open player to score a Super Bowl touchdown in nearly 10 years.
“Marquez Valdes-Scantling had 8.3 yards of separation on his 16-yard touchdown reception, the 3rd-most separation on a TD in the Super Bowl in the NGS era (since 2016). Patrick Mahomes is responsible for all three.”

Former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling Finds Success With The Kansas City Chiefs
Valdes-Scantling’s touchdown got the Chiefs ahead for the first time in the contest. It was also Kansas City’s first touchdown score in the game. It was quite an ending to the season not just for Kansas City but for Valdes-Scantling. For one, he only had a single touchdown reception during the entire 2023 NFL regular season. Not many thought he’d break through with one in the biggest game of the year, let alone that that was so crucial.
Valdes-Scantling was taken in the fifth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers and played out his first four seasons in the pros with them. In 2022, he signed a three-year $30 million deal with the Chiefs.
