Patrick Mahomes made history Monday night — becoming the fastest player in NFL annals to reach 10,000 passing yards. 385 came against the Baltimore Ravens, as he scored five total touchdowns in a 34-20 Kansas City Chiefs win. Kansas City started the game on a 27-10 run before holding off a possible Baltimore comeback in the second half.

With the momentum shifting in Baltimore’s favor, Mahomes lobbed a pass to left tackle Eric Fisher in the back left of the end zone for the game’s put-away touchdown (no, that was not a typo).

Mahomes’ four other scores came in the first half. After running in a touchdown three yards for a 7-3 lead midway through the first quarter, Mahomes turned to the air for his next three scores. Mahomes threw touchdowns on a 5-yard shovel pass to fullback Anthony Sherman, a 20-yard pass to wide receiver Tyreek Hill and a 49-yard chuck to a wide-open Mecole Hardman.

After their initial, 67-yard scoring drive — which led to a field goal — quarterback Lamar Jackson and the Ravens could only muster 30 yards during the rest of the half. The Ravens’ only touchdown of the half came as a result of a 93-yard kickoff return by rookie wide receiver Devin Duvernay.

The Ravens rallied back in the third quarter. First, Ravens safety Chuck Clark forced and recovered a Darwin Thompson fumble, resulting in three points. Leading 27-13, head coach Andy Reid called a fourth-down Anthony Sherman run at his own 49, but Sherman was stuffed by Baltimore defensive end Derek Wolfe.

The Ravens cut the lead to one score when Jackson found tight end Nick Boyle for a 5-yard touchdown to make it 27-20. Fisher’s score came on the ensuing possession to put the game out of reach.

The Chiefs’ defense made Jackson uncomfortable all night, sacking him four times. Defensive tackle Chris Jones registered 2.0 sacks and forced two fumbles, while linebacker Ben Niemann and defensive end Frank Clark sacked Jackson on back-to-back fourth-quarter plays to seal the game.


Injuries

  • L’Jarius Sneed and Rashad Fenton started the game at cornerback with Charvarius Ward dealing with his hand injury, but Ward checked in the game when Sneed left midway through the second quarter with a shoulder injury.
  • Chiefs starting right guard Andrew Wylie arrived to M&T Bank Stadium sick and went to a local hospital, first reported by The Kansas City Star. Veteran Mike Remmers got the start in place of Wylie.
  • Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones tweaked his groin near the end of the game.
