Patrick Mahomes is having himself an amazing season in 2022.
While he’s got the Kansas City Chiefs in first place in the AFC West, he’s also got himself a lead in the MVP race.
However, this lead comes from him holding a wide lead in one NFL statistic.

This puts Mahomes well ahead of his closest competitor in passing yards.
Even if Mahomes misses a game, he will still have the most passing yards.
That’s how wide of a lead the Super Bowl champion quarterback is with his passing yards numbers.
However, with four games remaining in the season, he’s looking to break an NFL record.
Mahomes Is 1,316 Yards From Tying Peyton Manning’s 2013 Record
It was in 2013 where Peyton Manning set the single-season record for most passing yards.
However, the Chiefs star quarterback is looking to pass this milestone in 2022.
With 1,316 passing yards, he can tie Manning’s record of 5,477 passing yards for a season.
But this requires the young star to average 329 yards in his last four games.
With the Chiefs facing the Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos, and Las Vegas Raiders, he can hit this milestone.
While the feat is a tall task, it’s not impossible, as he’s already averaging 320 passing yards each game.
If he can average 10 yards more each game, he’ll easily become the new NFL passing yards leader.
