Crushing records and reaching important marks is becoming a thing of habit for the Kansas City Chiefs signal-caller Patrick Mahomes. And each achievement seems to be more impressive than the past.
Mahomes added to his already long list of accomplishments on Monday night, when he helped the Chiefs to a statement 20-34 win over Baltimore Ravens on the road. In that game, the 25-year-old Mahomes became the fastest player to reach 10,000 passing yards in the history of the NFL.
Mahomes needed 34 NFL games to reach the mark, beating the previous record held by legendary Rams’ signal-caller Kurt Warner. Warner got to 10K in 36 games.
Mahomes finished the game against Baltimore by completing 31 out of 42 pass attempts for 385 yards and four touchdowns.
“The sky’s the limit for this kid,” said Mahomes’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. “He’s a special, rare breed of talent.”
After leading the Chiefs to a Super Bowl victory last season, Patrick Mahomes isn’t showing signs of stopping down this year either. Three games into the season, Mahomes already has 898 passing yards and nine touchdowns without any interceptions. Kansas City won all three contests with an average 7-point margin.
