Patrick Mahomes sets two-game NFL touchdown record

New, comments

Mahomes’ 10 touchdowns in two games is the best ever.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Pittsburgh Steelers Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has set an NFL record for touchdown passes through his team’s first two games of the season.

Prior to Sunday, only two other quarterbacks—Drew Brees in 2009 and Peyton Manning in 2013—had thrown for nine touchdowns in the first two games of the season. Mahomes matched that total of nine with his fifth touchdown in the third quarter.

Then, with Mahomes’ sixth touchdown in the game, he reached 10 touchdown passes and now stands alone in history.

Mahomes isn’t just living up to the ridiculous hype so far; he’s actually surpassing it.
