From the great Patrick Mahomes

From the great Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes once again demonstrated that he was the man for great occasions on Monday night at M&T Bank Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback amassed five touchdowns, allowing his team to beat the Baltimore Ravens 34-20.

The reigning Super Bowl champions therefore continued their perfect start to the season, while their rivals of the day suffered a first setback in three outings.

Mahomes completed 31 of his 42 attempted passes for gains of 385 yards and four touchdowns. He has targeted four different teammates for his major, including offensive lineman Eric Fisher.

He also demonstrated his skills with an underwater pass to center-back Anthony Sherman for another of his touchdowns.

Mahomes also took advantage of this duel to cross the milestone of 10,000 passing yards. He achieved the feat in 34 games, which means he is the pivot to reach that prestigious mark the fastest in NFL history.

The 25-year-old ran with the ball four times, getting 26 yards and a major.

For the Ravens, quarterback Lamar Jackson had a more difficult game, completing 53.5% of his throws for 97 yards and a touchdown. He did well with his legs, however, amassing 83 yards on nine carries.

Next Sunday, the Chiefs will try to stay perfect as they host the New England Patriots. For their part, the Ravens will visit the Washington football team.
