Patrick Mahomes made NFL history last night in Chiefs win

Cincinnati Bengals v Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs have made a beautiful start to the NFL season, defying all expectations on their way to a 6-1 record.

That's good enough for the best mark in the AFC and is second in the entire National Football League only trailing Sean McVay and the currently unbeaten Los Angeles Rams, who have won all seven of their games.

Nobody from outside the Chiefs organisation saw this coming, especially after they traded away starting quarterback Alex Smith to the Redskins and Patrick Mahomes became the new man under center.

But through his first half a season as a starting quarterback in the NFL, Mahomes has been an absolute revelation.

He's taken the league by storm, quickly becoming the number one QB in fantasy and one of the leading candidates for Most Valuable Player. 

And last night, Andy Reid's newest superstar set yet another benchmark for his success, in the form of a new NFL record.

As Kansas City routed the Cincinnati Bengals to the tune of 45-10 in Arrowhead on Sunday Night Football, Mahomes etched himself into the history books yet again - with this latest accolade seeing him move beyond Kurt Warner for the most touchdown passes in NFL history through the first eight career games.

Warner's record was 21. Here's how Mahomes reached 22. 

After dropping a low snap from the center, Mahomes had the composure to get the ball back in his hands before a defender could reach him, before rolling out to his left away from the pressure and finding Tyreek Hill in the endzone. 

Patrick Mahomes is coming for all the QB records. And in this offense, with Andy Reid gameplanning like he is, I would back him to get them.
