Fab 50: Relive every one of Patrick Mahomes’ regular-season passing touchdowns

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (15) celebrates after his third touchdown pass of the game during the first half of an NFL football game against the San Francisco 49ers in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018. Mahomes’ TDs surpass Peyton Manning for the most pass TDs by a quarterback in his team’s first three games of the season in NFL history.
At only 23, Mahomes and his no-look passes have helped make the Kansas City Chiefs the team to beat in the AFC.

He was more than hype.

Patrick Mahomes obtained celebrity stature in this town before he ever threw an NFL pass, the man tasked with pushing the Chiefs to a level of Super Bowl contention they haven’t enjoyed for decades. And whatever happens during this postseason, Mahomes has done his part in getting the Chiefs to where they stand today — as the team to beat in the AFC.

He’s the leading NFL MVP candidate, the second player in league history to throw for 50 touchdowns and 5,000 yards in a single season and still a youthful 23 years old. Teammates, coaches — heck, even opponents — have exhausted superlatives to describe his record-breaking season.

So what better way is there to fully encapsulate the year than to look back on it touchdown by touchdown? Let’s do just that.
