Patrick Mahomes has broken many records already in his short NFL career so far. He is already on his way to becoming an all-time great of the game. However, he has a mountain to climb in the upcoming season to break an impressive record set by one of the game’s greatest.

Dan Marino, the former quarterback of the Miami Dolphins, set a record of throwing 196 touchdowns through the first six seasons of his career. Mahomes has a chance of surpassing him in the next season, but it won’t be easy for him.

Patrick Mahomes has thrown 151 touchdowns in his first five seasons in the league. He’ll need to throw 46 touchdowns to break Dan Marino’s record in the upcoming season.

Mahomes had played only one game during his rookie season. Otherwise, this record might have been a cakewalk for him, considering how he has played since entering the league.

Even though Tyreek Hill is no longer a part of the Kansas City Chiefs, their offense is still lethal. They have added many good players to replace Tyreek, and it will help Mahomes massively. He has more options than ever to throw the ball, and the opposition’s defenses will find it tough to cover.  Players like Travis Kelce, Juju Smith-Schuster, Marques Valdes-Scantling, and rookie Sky Moore will be expected to have a terrific season for the Chiefs.

He certainly has a chance to break the record. Mahomes has shown previously that he is capable of throwing 50 touchdowns in a season. He now has more weapons around him, and as a result, Dan Marino’s record will face a huge threat next season.
