With every game, it feels like Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is rewriting the history books and redefining the position. Normally that involves some kind of amazing touchdown pass or a scramble for a first down that he pulls out of nowhere. Apparently, it even includes the times when he gets sacked.

Mahomes and the Chiefs were already off to a rough start on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. With a little over nine minutes left in the first quarter and the score knotted up at 0-0, the QB tried to dump the ball to Travis Kelce but it ended up getting tipped by Dolphins linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel, giving cornerback Byron Jones the chance to snag it.

While Miami wasn’t able to convert anything out of the turnover, they did do something even more spectacular on the next defensive stand. Though to be fair, Mahomes certainly played a key role in the big play as he took the snap on third down and started scrambling backward…and backward…and backward, until he was finally tackled by Jerome Baker for a 30-yard sack!

In case you’re wondering, a 30-yard loss on a sack is not something that happens very common…

And, as required by law, Twitter was ready to give the sack the treatment it so richly deserved.

And as if the day wasn’t going poorly enough for Mahomes, he logged his second interception of the day soon after. It’s worth noting that Patrick came into Sunday having only thrown two interceptions on the entire season!

In spite of all the miscues and unforced errors, the Chiefs still led the Dolphins 14-10 at halftime. It’s a credit to the team they’ve surrounded Mahomes with and their ability to brush off the miscues. But we’ll see if the second half brings anymore fits for the reigning MVP or if he’s brushed them off.
