What record did Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes break in Week 7 clash vs Chargers to enter the elite QB club?

Patrick Mahomes has been the driving force behind the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense, consistently helping them shine in nearly every game since taking over as the starter. He has found a reliable partner in Travis Kelce, and together, they have already assisted the Chiefs in securing two Lombardi Trophies within just four seasons.

As he enters his seventh season with the Chiefs, Mahomes has clearly shown the entire football world that hardly any of his matches will pass without him setting or breaking a record. With another victory for his team in Week 7, the quarterback once again reminded his fans of this fact, further etching his name in the annals of the NFL’s record book.

Patrick Mahomes continues to rewrite history

The Chiefs defeated the Chargers 31-17 in a battle of AFC West rivals while their star quarterback was on his way to beat Norm Van Brocklin, who holds the single-game NFL passing record with 554 yards. In spite of being close to it, Patrick Mahmoes unfortunately could not break the record as he ended with 424 passing yards.

Before that, speculation arose that the two-time Super Bowl winner, who was initially listed as a punter by the Chiefs, perhaps could do it as he threw for 321 yards in the first half . Three of his four touchdown throws were also completed by him in the first half.

Although he briefly lost hold of this record, the Chiefs’ hero managed to rewrite the league’s history by surpassing Dan Marino’s record. This marked the 10th career game with at least 400 passing yards for the Chiefs’ hero in his 87th career game, while Marino had to wait 90 games to achieve the same feat, per NFL.com.

Besides surpassing Marino, the 28-year-old quarterback has now joined the elite group of six other players who have reached this milestone in their careers. These players include Matthew Stafford, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady, with our subject now leading this impressive record.

While he is still behind Manning (eight) and Marino (seven) in terms of games with 400–4, he tied Drew Brees for the third-most throwing yards and touchdown passes in a player’s career with at least four touchdown passes.

In the match against the Chargers, Travis recorded his season-high 12 catches for 179 yards, marking his fifth career game with 10 or more receptions and at least 150 receiving yards. The majority of his catches and yards came in the first half, as he finished with nine receptions for 143 yards and a touchdown.

In terms of receiving, it was his second-highest game to date. By achieving this, he joined Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe as the second tight end in NFL history to have at least five games with 150 or more receiving yards.

Till Patrick Mahomes has Kelce and Kelce has Mahomes and Taylor Swift, perhaps the record-setting and breaking style of the duo will continue. What’s your opinion?
