KANSAS CITY, Mo. — They don't know where. They don't know when. In the time of COVID-19, everything is up in the air. But they do know that it's happening.

"It" is a throw-off competition between two of the biggest arms in the NFL – the Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes and the Buffalo Bills' Josh Allen.

Allen confirmed this Wednesday on NFL Network.

"We had something in place," Allen said. "It was supposed to be this summer. But obviously some COVID restrictions had that shot down."

That was enough for betting lines to already come out. According to The Odds PR, Allen would be slightly favored in velocity and Mahomes would be slightly favored in distance.

The oddsmaker set the over/under at 83.5 yards for the longest throw between the two. The fastest throw between the two is set at 60.5 mph.

"Yes, I'm game," Allen said. "Pat's got, obviously, one of the strongest arms in the league. Just the things that he's able to do on a football field are incredible to watch."

Allen said the event -- whenever it happens -- would raise money to charities of their choice.
