Patrick Mahomes throws for 321 yards, 3 TDs in first half vs. Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was on pace to break an NFL record after guiding his team to a 24-17 halftime lead over the Chargers. And he can thank his favorite target Travis Kelce for the big numbers. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Mahomes threw for 321 yards and three touchdowns in the first half, putting Norm Van Brocklin’s single-game record of 554 passing yards well within reach.
  • Kelce accounted for 143 of those yards — the fifth most the tight end has ever had in a game.
  • Kelce also was on the receiving end of one of Mahomes’ TD passes making that the 50th time the duo has linked up for a touchdown.
  • This marks Mahomes’ second career half with at least 300 passing yards and three touchdowns (also 2019 Week 2 at Raiders), most in the NFL since his first season as a starter in 2018.
