Patrick Mahomes is on the verge of achieving a significant milestone in the history of the Kansas City Chiefs. Since assuming the role of starting quarterback, Mahomes has been instrumental in transforming the franchise’s fortunes. The former Texas Tech standout has not only met but surpassed all expectations, prompting discussions about his potential to rival Tom Brady as the greatest quarterback of all time.

A Statement from the Kansas City Chiefs & Kansas City Royals

Despite being in the league for less than a decade, Mahomes is just 84 yards shy of becoming the Chiefs’ all-time passing leader. With a current total of 28,424 passing yards, he trails only the legendary Len Dawson, who holds the record with 28,507 yards. Remarkably, Mahomes has achieved this feat before even turning 29 years old.

Mahomes has already compiled a résumé worthy of Hall of Fame consideration. He has been a dominant force in the league since his emergence as a starter in 2018, leading the Chiefs to the AFC Championship Game in each of his seasons as a starter and making four Super Bowl appearances during that time.

In the playoffs, Mahomes has only been bested by two quarterbacks: Joe Burrow once and Tom Brady twice, boasting an impressive 15-3 record overall. He is on pace to shatter numerous quarterback-related records and could potentially lead the Chiefs to an unprecedented three consecutive Super Bowl victories.

While it is still early to definitively declare Mahomes as the greatest of all time, his trajectory suggests that he may ultimately earn that title.
