Breaking records is nothing new for Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes is also the fastest quarterback to reach pretty much every record. The Chiefs superstar reached 10,000 career passing yards in 34 games, requiring two games fewer than previous record holder Kurt Warner. He threw for 9,238 yards and 75 touchdowns in just 30 games, a feat that made him the fastest quarterback to reach the combined milestone of 9000+ yards and 75 touchdowns.
