Record-set­ting Ma­homes not sat­is­fied

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - NEWS -

of­fen­sive line and skill play­ers did their jobs and made it eas­ier for him to do his.

Ul­ti­mately, the game played out as Ma­homes had ex­pected, with a vic­tory and a mess of yards and points. Ma­homes passed for 314 yards, 3 touch­downs and no in­ter­cep­tions while post­ing a passer rat­ing of 115.5 en route to the record.

Al­though he couldn’t strike the two blown op­por­tu­ni­ties from his mind, Ma­homes ac­knowl­edged the sen­ti­men­tal value of achiev­ing the record and putting him­self in the com­pany of Man­ning and other great quar­ter­backs. But then he quickly shifted fo­cus to those around him.

“It’s awe­some. I watched all those quar­ter­backs when I grew up, and they’re great, great play­ers,” Ma­homes said.

“But it’s not just me. I still have a long way to go. I’m just out there run­ning the plan my coach wants me to run and get­ting it to these guys, and these guys are mak­ing some great plays.”
