With each passing day, Patrick Mahomes constantly proves that he is the best. He is breaking records like it is a cakewalk and has scripted records like no other athlete in NFL history.
Recently, he unlocked another achievement surpassing the Dolphins legend Dan Marino in terms of passing yards. The Week 11 encounter not only handed Mahomes a thrilling win but also an opportunity to rewrite history.
It was a nail-biting game, with the Chiefs sealing a last-minute 30-27 victory against the Chargers. Meanwhile, it turns out Mahomes completed the 37th 300-yard passing yards game of his career within the first seven NFL seasons.
This feat was previously achieved by Dan Marino from 1983 to 1989 and now Mahomes has joined this elite club. While it took Marino 101 games as a starter to make this happen, the Chiefs passer did it in 73 games.
This record has been left untouched and unnoticed since the 1980s, but now it is about to break as six games are still left in the season.
The second prospect on the current list is Andrew Luck, who completed 33 games of 300 passing yards in this time frame. This Sunday, the Chiefs will have a blockbuster matchup against the reigning Super Bowl champions Los Angeles Rams.
However, the Matthew Stafford-led side is on the brink of a lost campaign with a miserable season record of 3-7.
Meanwhile, Mahomes and Co. will look to better their chances of title contention, given their receiver corps had taken a hit a few weeks ago.
However, it looks fine now because JuJu Smith-Schuster is expected to return and Kadarius Toney getting his position elevated allows the OC to evaluate other backup prospects. There is no update on Mecole Hardman as he continues to remain in the injured reserve.
