Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has started his career off on a rocket ship in terms of pace and production.

As first pointed out by CBS Sports’ Jeff Kerr, through his first four seasons as a starter, Mahomes has averaged 38 touchdown passes per season. He has totaled 151 touchdown passes in those four seasons, which is already good for 92nd all-time in NFL history. If Mahomes were to keep his current pace and throw for 38 touchdown passes in 2022, he’d finished the season 59th all-time. He’d also pass some NFL greats at the quarterback position on the touchdown pass leaderboards.

Here’s a quick look at seven of those greats and how many touchdowns it will take for Mahomes to pass them on the leaderboards in 2022:
