It took Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes just 23 completed passes to throw six touchdowns against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The second-year quarterback was dominant for a second-straight week, and as the team revealed, Mahomes’ 10 touchdown passes through two games broke an NFL record.
In Week 1, the Chiefs quarterback threw for 256 yards and four touchdowns. His Week 2 performance was even more dominant, as he improved in quite a few areas of his game. Mahomes was not only able to lead his wide receivers to the end zone with ease, but he also completed 23-of-28 passes for 326 yards and posted a 154.8 quarterback rating.
Following the huge performance from the 22-year-old, let’s take a look at each of his record-breaking touchdown passes from the first two weeks.

Through two games, this gives Mahomes a total stat line of 38-of-55 for 582 passing yards, 10 touchdowns, no interceptions, and 39 rushing yards. It’s safe to say the Chiefs haven’t just found their franchise quarterback, but that fans can rest easy with the decision to part ways with Alex Smith this offseason.
Mahomes and the Chiefs will host the San Francisco 49ers in Week 3, which is their first home game of the 2018 NFL season. The home crowd is surely ecstatic about seeing their young signal caller in person for the first time this year.
