The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to play at Mexico City's Estadio Azteca stadium this upcoming season, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes believes the high altitude could work to his advantage.

Mahomes was asked how far he thinks he could throw a football in Mexico City during an appearance on the "Pardon My Take" podcast Monday.

"Probably 100 (yards)," Mahomes said at around the 51-minute mark. "Yeah, 'cause I got to like 80, 83 in Denver and then you have to times it by two 'cause it's like two miles above altitude. So I can handle the extra 20."

Estadio Azteca sits 7,200 feet above sea level - about 2,000 feet higher than Denver's Mile High Stadium.

The Chiefs will face the Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico City on Nov. 18.
