KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It didn’t take long Monday night for Patrick Mahomes to etch his name in the NFL record books once again, becoming the fastest quarterback in league history to surpass the 10,000-yard passing mark.
Mahomes completed a 13-yard pass to tight end Travis Kelce with less than 1 minute remaining in the first quarter. Mahomes finished the game 31-of-42 passing for 385 yards, giving him 10,310 career passing yards.
Kurt Warner previously owned the record by reaching 10,000 yards in his first 36 games. Matthew Stafford is next on the list at 37 games, followed by Dan Marion, Andrew Luck and Marc Bulger at 38 games.
Mahomes finished the drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to fullback Anthony Sherman. He added three more touchdown passes in the game, giving him 85 touchdown passes through his first 34 games. Marino previously held the mark for 79 touchdown passes through the first 34 games of his career.
The next major milestone up for Mahomes: fastest to 100 touchdown passes. Marino reached that mark in his first 43 games, meaning Mahomes needs 15 touchdown passes in his next nine games to match the Hall of Fame passer.
