Mahomes threw four scoring passes Sunday night against the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium. That gives him 22 touchdown passes in the first eight games of his career, breaking the record of 21 set by Kurt Warner.
Mahomes is also closing in on the Chiefs’ single-season record for touchdowns. Len Dawson threw 30 touchdown passes in 1964 and Mahomes needs nine games to catch him.
Mahomes also threw four touchdown passes this season in games against the Chargers and Patriots, and six against the Steelers.
Mahomes’ 22nd touchdown pass of the season came in the fourth quarter. Tyreek Hill caught the three-yard throw.
Mahomes failed to throw a touchdown pass in two of his eight career games, last season against the Broncos and this year against the Jaguars.
