Record-setting Mahomes not satisfied
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.”
