Patrick Mahomes: Record against winning teams

Patrick Mahomes is on pace to leave a legendary mark on the NFL. He has already won two MVP awards and two Super Bowl with the Kansas City Chiefs.

With so much success, let’s take a peek at how much of it has come against winning teams.

The reason for QB wins against winning teams

I started to dive into this stat for every quarterback because the new hot argument is to say that a certain quarterback didn’t beat any good teams. I often see people use this argument to say players like Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford are not good and just put up empty stats. At the end of the day, there is much more to the story.

Most importantly, quarterback wins are a team statistic. A great example of that is how Stafford had a horrible record with Detroit and won a Super Bowl after being traded to the LA Rams. Additionally, very few quarterbacks in the NFL have a winning record against teams who finished the season above .500 in the league. Most losses for everyone come against good teams. Go figure.

You can digest that information on your own. The main thing I want you to take away from this is that it is extremely rare to have a winning record against teams that finished the season with a winning record.

Conclusion of Patrick Mahomes against winning teams

Almost every quarterback in the NFL holds a losing record against winning teams. It only makes sense because those are the games you are most likely to lose every year. This has not been the case for Patrick Mahomes.

While Mahomes is an amazing talent, he benefited from being drafted into a good situation. He is paired with an amazing head coach in Andy Reid who spent a lot of time with him getting things right early on. Additionally, Mahomes wasn’t expected to play right away as he sat behind an established Alex Smith early on. This was crucial to his early success because like most QB’s he wasn’t ready right away.

Below is the first impression Chiefs star receiver had of Patrick Mahomes. Hill even said “I thought he was trash” after seeing him perform early on at training camp. He then described how Mahomes worked hard with the coaches to learn and improve.
