Patrick Mahomes wants to go 20-0

Plenty of NFL records should fall now that the league has expanded to 17-game seasons, but Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has his eye on one particular record that he’d like to see the Chiefs accomplish.

Mahomes wants to go 17-0 in the regular season, then win three games in the postseason, culminating in the Super Bowl, for a perfect 20-0 mark.

“The only record I have my eyes set on breaking, which would be new this year, would be going 20-0,” Mahomes said, via BleacherReport.com. “It’s not really a record to be broken I guess you would say—19-0 is the record right now—so being able to go 20-0 and being the first one to do that, that would be awesome.”

No team ever went 19-0 when the NFL was playing 16-game seasons. The 2007 Patriots came the closest, going 16-0 in the regular season but falling to 18-1 with a Super Bowl loss. The only undefeated, untied team in NFL history was the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who went 17-0 after a 14-game regular season.

Mahomes has a 38-8 record as a starter in the regular season and a 6-2 record in the playoffs. At 44-10, his combined record is impressive. But this year he wants to improve it to 64-10.

  1. Tampa will be rolling through an extremely soft NFC while whoever represents the AFC will be scorched in a gauntlet of powerhouse teams.

  2. not gonna happen. Teams don’t have depth any more due to few key players getting paid too much and if they happen to get injured, teams struggle. Why Pats were able to come close was because Tom had been offering a family discount on his salary for years and free agents chasing for a ring were all happy to take a paycut just to get a chance.

  3. Brady will give up two SBs to have a perfect season. Who wants it more than Brady? Brady’s window on this quest is closing. He’ll be more fired up now that Mahomes, his likely heir to the GOAT throne, has spoken. Good games coming.

  4. Just play the game in front of you. Looking further ahead is a recipe for disaster.

    NFL perfection was achieved in 1972, it will NEVER happen again!

    Yeah it’s hard for a team to get as easy a schedule as the 72 Dolphins had. Nine of their 11 opponents were below .500 😀

    Tom Brady thinks that’s cute.

    The Giants think Brady going undefeated is cute…

  7. At this point it doesn’t really matter who goes unbeaten, just do it so the ’72 Dolphins stop gloating at their 2 1/2 game perfect season.

  8. Here’s how you can tell what a good guy Mahomes is – he’s not even gonna charge Brady rent for letting Brady use the GOAT title for the next couple seasons.

  9. One thing is for certain. The NFL/Networks/Vegas axis will never allow another back-to-back champion. The Chiefs should have done it but upsets in postseason make too much money for the powers that be to allow a dominant team. When the Seahawks embarrassed the Broncos in 2013/14, they should have went back to back like the Chiefs but superstar Brady was allowed to prevent it …

  10. “hey should have went back to back like the Chiefs but superstar Brady was allowed to prevent it …”

    So Brady intercepted the pass from Wilson at the goal line? Brady called that pass play when NE couldn’t stop Lynch all day?

    Seattle didn’t go back to back because of a poor play call fro their coach…..a poor throw from Wilson….and a great play by NE defense.

    Yet they still managed three playoff wins. Unlike the 07 Pats, who had the greatest regular season in NFL history only to choke in the super bowl.

  12. Hmmm, too bad the Raiders blew that perfect record for them last year. Almost beat them twice!
