It would appear as though Patrick Mahomes can do no wrong. The second-year quarterback was again instrumental as the Kansas City Chiefs came from behind to beat the Denver Broncos 27-23 on Monday night and move to 4-0 for the season.

Along with the Los Angeles Rams the Chiefs are the only unbeaten team in the league and have Mahomes to thank for preserving the record intact. Having set an NFL record for touchdown passes thrown in the first two weeks of the season and for touchdown passes thrown in his first career games so far this season, the 23-year-old again stole the spotlight on Monday.

With the Chiefs down 23-20 on 3rd-and-five and just over three minutes left in the final quarter, Mahomes stepped back into the pocket, rolled to his left, somehow evaded the Broncos' defense and managed to throw a pass left handed pass to Tyreek Hill for a crucial first down.

The move ignited the Chiefs' winning drive and was all the more remarkable considering that Mahomes threw the pass while on the run and did so using his left hand, not his usual throwing hand.

While fans were busy drooling over his latest bit of magic on social media, Mahomes shrugged it all off with consummate ease.

"It's all situational,'' he was quoted as saying by ESPN. "There are times you can extend the play and give your receivers the chance to make plays and there are times you need to stay within the pocket and just take what's there.''

Viewers were not the only ones left speechless by Mahomes' brilliance, with Hill sounding every bit as surprised.

"I've never seen a quarterback who is right-handed throw the ball left-handed," he told ESPN. "Pat actually throws (left-handed) better than me and I'm left-handed.''

If Mahomes's left-hand pass was highlight material, his fourth quarter performance was just as impressive. The Chiefs' quarterback completed 13 of his 16 attempted passes in the final period, throwing for 151 yards and a two-yard touchdown to Travis Kelce, while his overall figures for the game stood at 28-of-45 for 304 passing yards and also included a rushing touchdown.

Considering Mahomes had thrown a combined 13 touchdowns in the first three weeks of the season, the Broncos did well to limit him to just one touchdown pass. Conversely, the former Texas Tech student became the first quarterback to throw for over 300 yards against Denver in 38 games, a streak that dated all the way back to 2015.

Mahomes, who is 5-0 as a starter in the NFL, was so impressive that Broncos quarterback Case Keenum rushed to congratulate him immediately after the game. "I'm so proud of you, man," Keenum said as the two embraced in front of the cameras.

A home game against the Jaguars is up next for the Chiefs and it will be fascinating to see how Mahomes copes with Jacksonville's defense, which has conceded just 56 points so far this season—the fewest of any of the teams that have played four games so far.

If the start of the campaign is anything to go by, he will probably not be fazed in the slightest.
