Patrick Mahomes breaks NFL record with yet another TD pass

Kansas City Chiefs v Pittsburgh Steelers

Heading into the new season, there was a lot of scepticism surrounding the Kansas City Chiefs.

Andy Reid made the move to trade away former starting quarterback Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins, handing over the reigns of the franchise to a youngster - second year quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

That was a risky move from Reid. Entering the 2017 NFL Draft, Mahomes was seen as a project quarterback, someone who would need a lot of refining before being good enough to go with. Well, Mahomes has now been unleashed on the league - and he's tearing it up.

In fact, Mahomes has come out of the gates so hot in 2018 that the Chiefs signal-caller has just broken a record held by the one and only Peyton Manning.

Well, technically the record was also held by Drew Brees and Charley Johnson but Manning is the biggest name there. 

So, what is the record I hear you cry? Well - Mahomes has become the first man in the history of the NFL to throw 10 touchdown passes in the first two weeks of the regular season.

Manning, Brees and Johnson all only managed nine, in 2013, 2009 and 1965 respectively. Now, their record has been overtaken.

Manning was the only one of those to not also throw an interception in those two games, something that Mahomes hasn't done either. That's how perfect Patty Ice has been.

Mahomes was on another level on Sunday, as he threw more touchdown passes than incompletions - finishing the game with numbers of 23-for-28 with 326 yards and a passer rating of 154.8 to go along with his six touchdowns. 

We could well be seeing the start of the NFL's next great quarterback's career. With his command of the Chiefs offense, Mahomes looks imperious out there running Andy Reid's offense. Let's hope he can keep it up for many more weeks and years to come.
