Patrick Mahomes stunned the NFL world yet again after a sensational second quarter that blew the Texans off the field.
The Chiefs were staring at a 24 points deficit in the 2nd quarter and fans were in utter disbelief.
Then Mahomes stepped up.
Texans coach Bill O’Brien decided he’d rather take a field goal than go for it on 4th-and-1 on the Chiefs’ 13.
The Chiefs rewarded that bit of charity with four straight touchdown drives to end the first half, then two more to open the second half.
But it was the brilliance of Mahomes that sent social media into meltdown.
It was the 2nd game this season the quarterback has thrown four touchdown passes in the 2nd quarter.

I didn't think I could love Patrick Mahomes than I already did. I was wrong.— Kent Swanson (@kent_swanson) January 12, 2020
Friendly reminder that Patrick Mahomes is playing like this even though he still needs surgery after the season for the dislocated kneecap he suffered.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) January 12, 2020
Dude is a CYBORG.
The Chiefs continued their run and ended up charging to a 51-31 victory.
At the game’s end, Mahomes became the first quarter back ever with 300 pass yards, 50 rushing yards and five touchdown passes in a playoff game, according to SportsCenter.
