Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes eventually will be one of the all-time greats. He’s already matching some of their accomplishments, only one game into his fifth full season as a starter.

On Sunday at Arizona, Mahomes threw five touchdown passes. It was the sixth game of his career with five touchdown passes.

According to the NFL, Mahomes is already tied for fourth on the all-time list for games with five touchdown passes, matching Hall of Famer Dan Fouts and future Hall of Famer Ben Roethlisberger with six.

Mahomes needs three more games with five touchdown passes to catch Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and future Hall of Famer Tom Brady in a tie for second place, with nine. At that point, Mahomes will need only two more games with five or more touchdowns to match future Hall of Famer Drew Brees with 11.

Mahomes was spectacular on Sunday, despite not having Tyreek Hill. Don’t be surprised if it continues all year long.

We’ll see him again in only four nights, when the Chiefs host the Chargers in the first ever streaming-only prime-time regular-season game, on Amazon Prime Video.

  1. Compared to this time last year, Mahomes looks sharp and he’s moving a lot better. The crazy thing is he actually missed Mecole Hardman on what would have been another TD.

  2. I loved all the off season talk about how Burrow and Allen were better. Mahomes is just the right kind of petty, he takes it personal. That’s good to have in a QB who can back it up. Not so much if you can’t.

  3. Mahomes doled it out all summer. He’s hot. Playing superbly and, barring injury will finish top 3 for MVP. He’s better than fans realize.

  4. Mahomes is already an all time great.

    If he retires today he well have had an all time four year run and been a top 3 qb basically since he took over.

    In my record I’d put him ahead of rivers eli and ben already. He doesn’t have the longevity but a much higher apex then those guys.

  5. Is there an over/under yet on how many times KC backup QB Chad Henne will finish a game that the Chiefs win?

    Nice game, but he’s no Josh Allen, the true face of the league.

    You have to beat the best to be the best. Until that happens, and maybe even after, Josh will be second. Josh is the Karl Malone to Mahomes’s Jordan.
