Now four full seasons in, he's helped bring the Kansas City Chiefs back to the Super Bowl twice, including a victory against the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV (more on this below), and is fast approaching 20,000 yards — an NFL milestone he should clear early on in his 2022 campaign.
Let's dive into Patrick Mahomes' accomplished career and see where he stacks up against each and every NFL team — both in the regular season and postseason.
|Team||Mahomes' regular season record||Mahomes' postseason record|
|Green Bay Packers||1-0||N/A|
|Las Vegas Raiders||7-1||N/A|
|Los Angeles Chargers||6-2||N/A|
|Los Angeles Rams||0-1||N/A|
|New England Patriots||2-1||0-1|
|New Orleans Saints||1-0||N/A|
|New York Giants||1-0||N/A|
|New York Jets||1-0||N/A|
|San Francisco 49ers||1-0||1-0|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||1-0||0-1|
Mahomes vs the Buffalo Bills
These two star QBs have split regular-season meetings, but Mahomes has gotten the better of Allen in those critical postseason showdowns. Mahomes & Co. hung 38 on the Bills in the 2021 AFC Championship Game en route to a 14-point victory. Pat threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns, completing 29 of 39 passes for the game.
Last year's instant classic of an AFC Divisional Round meeting saw Mahomes and Allen trading blows, but Pat ultimately got the last laugh. With just 13 seconds left, Mahomes completed a two-play, 38-yard drive to get the Chiefs into field goal range and force overtime. Then, after KC won the OT coin toss, he threw a touchdown pass to Travis Kelce to send the Chiefs to their fourth consecutive AFC title game.
Needless to say, we'll be seeing much more of these two gunslingers in the AFC playoffs for years to come.
Mahomes vs the Denver Broncos
Since taking the reigns in KC, Mahomes has helped the Chiefs win the AFC West each of those four years — thanks in some part to their dominance of the Denver Broncos.
Mahomes enters the 2022 season 9-0 against the Broncos, a record that includes his first career start as a rookie in 2017 and a handful of blowout wins: 43-16, 23-3, 30-6, and 22-9.
It also goes beyond Mahomes' years, with Denver winless against KC since 2015. However, that may begin to shift with Russell Wilson now under center.

Mahomes vs the Las Vegas Raiders
Another AFC West foe that Mahomes has consistently gotten the better of is the Las Vegas Raiders.
Mahomes started his career 4-0 against Vegas before dropping a 40-32 shootout at home in 2020. Last season was a much different story, though, with the Chiefs taking both divisional tilts by a combined score of 89-23. Mr. Mahomes combined for 664 yards and seven touchdowns in those games.
Mahomes vs the Baltimore Ravens
While not as overwhelming as Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson has also found his name tied to Mahomes in a variety of ways.
After Lamar followed up Mahomes' 2018 MVP campaign with one of his own in 2019, it appeared these two would be butting heads in the AFC. However, Mahomes' Chiefs took the first three matchups: the first in overtime, the second by five points, and the third in a 14-point thumping.
Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens responded last year in Week 2, shocking the Chiefs 36-35 in a game Lamar threw for 239 yards and ran for 107 more. Sadly, there's no matchup on the docket for 2022.
Mahomes vs the San Francisco 49ers
It's hard to break down Patrick Mahomes' career without mentioning his most important victory: Super Bowl LIV against the San Francisco 49ers.
While Mahomes struggled at times against San Fran's defense (two interceptions), he shined late — quickly erasing a 10-point second-half deficit with a 21-point fourth quarter.
He completed 26 of his 42 passes, threw for two touchdowns, and rushed for a third. The performance earned him Super Bowl MVP honors, making him the third youngest recipient and youngest quarterback to win it (24 years, 138 days old).
