Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is having his best season since 2019 in two key areas

Though Patrick Mahomes’ raw production hasn’t lived up to the expectations placed on him as the NFL’s reigning MVP, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has managed to excel in two key areas through the team’s first nine games.

According to Pro Football Reference, Mahomes is on track to put up his lowest bad throw percentage and highest on-target pass percentage since 2019.

Both of these stats are good indicators of Mahomes’ ability to run the Chiefs offense efficiently, despite the lower counting stats he has put up so far this season. While passing yards, touchdowns, and yards per attempt serve a purpose in quantifying a quarterback’s production, stats like bad throw and on-target pass percentages can give fans more context for his recent performances.

Mahomes will need to keep up his excellent work in these categories to help lift Kansas City to its eighth win of the season against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football in Week 11.
