Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes put on yet another impressive show on Monday night when the Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens 34-20, throwing for 385 yards and four touchdowns in the victory.

But Mahomes didn’t just win the game with his performance, he also became the fastest player to collect 10,000 career passing yards, according to ESPN’s Adam Teicher.

“You’ve got to give Patrick credit for leading the charge there,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He stepped up big and wanted the responsibility.”

“You can’t possibly cover all the different things [the Ravens] do. You just have to stay disciplined in your rules and go from there.”

“Our defense, when you go in training camp against [Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo], you’re getting a heavy dose of blitzes from everywhere,” Mahomes said. “We may not have seen some of the exact blitzes, but we’ve seen blitzes with fire-zone pressures and Cover 0s. Guys sped up their routes, and the offensive line gave me enough time.”

“The sky’s the limit for this kid,” Chiefs’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins said. “He’s a special, rare breed of talent.”
