Patrick Mahomes has been breaking records and setting milestones during this NFL season.
The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback came into the playoffs after completing a great regular season with amazing stats.
However, the record-setting Mahomes is now joining another elite NFL club.
He is now the third NFL quarterback to start in five consecutive Conference Championship Games.

However, his record in those championship games isn’t as great.
In his previous four AFC Championship Games, the young quarterback has a 2-2 record.
His losses to the New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals kept him out of the Super Bowl.
However, he can now avenge one of those AFC Championship losses when he faces the Bengals on Sunday.
The game is a rematch from last season, which saw the Chiefs blow an 11-point halftime lead.
While the last drive of the first half ultimately cost the Chiefs, it doesn’t take away from how critics feel Mahomes choked during the game.
But now he can prove those critics wrong and send his team to the Super Bowl.
However, he’s dealing with an ankle injury he suffered against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday.
While the injury didn’t keep him out of the game completely, he missed plays during that 27-20 victory.
If his injury is lingering, then his chance at revenge might come to a halt.
NFL fans around the world now eagerly wait to see if Mahomes will play and if he can reach the third Super Bowl of his young career.
