Patrick Mahomes is setting a lofty team goal for the 2021 NFL season, and it’s not just the team getting to the Super Bowl and winning it again.
The Kansas City Chiefs QB is out in Hawaii at The Club at Hokuli’a with teammates Travis Kelce and Kyle Long for the first annual “15 and the Mahomies Aloha Golf Classic.” During a break from the action, Mahomes took some time to sit down and talk football with Kayla Nicole for Bleacher Report where he revealed the record he is shooting for in 2021.
“The only record that I have my eyes set on breaking, which will be new this year, is going 20-0,” Mahomes said. “It’s not really a record to be broken, I guess you would say. I think 19-0 is the record right now, so being able to go 20 and 0, to be the first one to do that would be awesome.”
The 2007 New England Patriots were the last team to post a perfect regular season, but as you know, they fell to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII. They’d go 18-1 including the Super Bowl loss.
The 1972 Miami Dolphins were the only team during the Super Bowl era to go undefeated in both the regular season and the postseason.
Last year, the Chiefs went 14-2, but got taken down and denied back-to-back championships when they lost to Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl.
