Patrick Mahomes answered questions on Friday about his recent comments stating that the only record he was interested in was the Chiefs going 20-0.
Mahomes quickly dismissed the notion that he was predicting 20-0 as a record for the Chiefs in 2021.
“I believe the question I was asked was what record that I would want to break, and to me, records don’t mean anything unless you’re winning that last game at the end of the season,” Mahomes said in a conference call at Chiefs minicamp Thursday. “To me, it’s about going in every single week with the mindset that we’re trying to win, we’re going to win.”
“At the end of the day, whatever the record is, whether it’s 20-0 or whatever it is, you’re winning the last game of the season, then you’re going to be happy with whatever happened earlier in the season.”
“If you’re in this league, you want to win every time you’re on the football field,” Mahomes said. “I think people get all hype about 20-0 because you have to take it one week at a time, but at the end of the day, you want to continue to win every single time you’re on the field, every single week. I’m not going into the season hoping I lose any games.”
“I know I’m going to have to answer (those) questions either way, so may as well answer questions about us winning football games.”
