In Year 6, Patrick Mahomes ties Dan Marino for most 300-yard games in first 7 seasons

Rodney Harrison, Jac Collinsworth and Chris Simms explore how the Chiefs are able to take pressure off Patrick Mahomes, why he’s the clear MVP through Week 11 and more.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has started his career by putting up passing numbers like no other player in NFL history.

The latest example: Mahomes had the 37th 300-yard passing game of his career on Sunday, which ties the record for the most 300-yard games in a player’s first seven NFL seasons. Dan Marino, with 37 300-yard games from 1983 to 1989, has owned the record since the 1980s.

But this is only Mahomes’ sixth NFL season, and he only played in one game as a rookie. So Mahomes has reached 37 300-yard games far faster than Marino did: Mahomes has started 73 games in his career; Marino got his 37th 300-yard game in his 101st career start.

After Mahomes and Marino, the player with the next-most 300-yard games in his first seven seasons was Andrew Luck, who had 33 games of 300 passing yards in his seven-year NFL career.
