Going into 2018, many were not sure what to make of new Kansas City starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Many knew he was talented, but there was doubt about the first-year starter who was replacing veteran starter Alex Smith. Mahomes dispelled any doubts when he threw for six touchdowns on Sept. 16, for a 42-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. With these six touchdowns, Mahomes set a NFL record on the road, accumulating 10 touchdown passes in the first two weeks of the season.
