Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs Churn Out Records and Comebacks
On Monday Night Football, the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Las Vegas Raiders 30-29. Patrick Mahomes has now defeated the Raiders eight out of nine times. That's the best record a starting quarterback has against the Raiders in their history.
That's just the kind of stuff that Mahomes is involved with.
Last week, and every week Mahomes plays, he sets another record or passes another milestone. This week against the Raiders, with former Dallas Cowboys QB Troy Aikman calling the game, Mahomes passed the NFL Hall of Famer in touchdowns. Mahomes threw four of them to get to 166 total through five seasons.
Aikman had 165 in his entire 12-year NFL career.
Those four touchdowns all went to Mahomes' favorite target, Travis Kelce. Four touchdowns catches on Monday Night Football? Another record.
It's every week something like this happens to Mahomes and the Chiefs.
Back to the game. The Raiders were up 17-0 before the Chiefs even scored a point. The Kansas City Chiefs have been behind by at least ten points 21 times with Mahomes as the quarterback since 2018.
Of those 10-point deficits, Mahomes and the Chiefs have come from behind to win 12 times. That's a winning record.
NFL Analyst Field Yates put together the numbers for everyone else in the league since 2018 and they're winning about 15 percent of those games. Mahomes and the Chiefs win nearly 60 percent of those games.
That's a fairly mind-blowing stat, but it proves one thing: never ever count out Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. He's never out of the game.
