    Playing the on pace game, through 18% of the season, Mahomes is on pace for 6,372 yards and 53 TD.

    53 TDs is not a stretch considering he threw for 50 in 2018.

    But yeah, 6300 passing yards seems a bit much, especially when you consider weather conditions later in the season. I'd take an under on that part.

    6372 might be a stretch …. but 5,477 -Manning's record …. I'll take the over. He threw for 5097 last year.

    53 TD's …. the record is 55. He threw 50 last year. He had two games last year where he threw 6 and only 2 games where he threw 1 or 0.
    One thing for sure is they are gonna put the ball in his hands and they will score a buncha points …. He'll get the opportunities. I wouldn't put this one out of the realm of possibility. Might not be this year , but eventually he breaks that 55 record.

    Sure 6,372 is a stretch, seeing how nobody has ever surpassed 5,500.
    But he's averaging 398 yards per game against a pretty good Jacksonville defense, and a pretty good Ravens defense. And they have to keep throwing the ball and scoring because their defense sucks.

    I'll absolutely take the under as well, but he just needs to average 329 per game to break the record. He's averaging 328.8 for his career so far. Anything more than that and he could be pushing 5,600, 5,700. I don't think that is out of the question at all.

    328 average sounds like a gimmie …. He's had that in a half twice this season.

    I think he breaks the yardage record this year , assuming he stays healthy …. and the TD record eventually.

    That Dec.8th game against the Pats is one I wont miss if at all possible.

    Those sneaks at the goal line that he does probably qualify.

    Only two QB's in the history of the league had thrown for 300+ yards and no picks in each of the first three games to start a season …. Brady and Mahomes.

    Mahomes just made it 4 straight 300 yard games with no picks.


    Wonder if KC would trade us Andy Reid …. ??

    Mahomes is already an elite NFL QB. Maybe the best QB in the league this year.

    Watson is a badass, but he's a work in progress. Some things can be attributed to coaching, bad OL, schemes, etc., but there are certainly things in his game that he can improve on. Seems like half of his sacks are his own fault.

    If I'm Watson I get obrien fired because there's too much talk that he's much worse than mahomes when it's mainly coaching difference. Gonna cost him a lot of money

    Some numbers were ties with other players and some players were left out due to little play.
