Amid Monday night's highly awaited Chiefs-Ravens clash, Patrick Mahomes provided further proof of his supernova status.
Mahomes surpassed 10,000 career yards passing faster than anyone before him, doing so in his 34th game. The previous mark was established by Hall of Famer Kurt Warner, who moved past the milestone in 36 games.
Mahomes vaulted past 10,000 yards late in the second quarter on a pass to Travis Kelce for 13 yards that gave him 10,008 yards.
He then proceeded to lead the Chiefs to a 34-20 victory and a 3-0 start to the season.
The 25-year-old with the miracle for an arm and a penchant for the dramatic entered the evening with 9,925 yards passing – along with NFL Most Valuable Player and Super Bowl MVP accolades to his credit.
He finished the night with a sterling performance. In addition to a rushing touchdown, Mahomes was 31-for-42 for 385 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions and a 133.5 QB rating. And now Mahomes has 10,310 career passing yards, having arrived at that number faster than any quarterback in NFL history.
"I mean, you know, they don't give that guy a half a billion dollars for no reason," Ravens defensive lineman Calais Campbell said following the game. "He's an incredible talent and he just made play after play."
