Patrick Mahomes is on a record pace to start his NFL career. The 2018 NFL MVP is playing like a quarterback who's going to shatter many of the league's passing records.

The Athletic wrote a piece about the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback's statistical dominance on Monday.

"Patrick Mahomes has thrown 36% of Troy Aikman's career touchdowns, in about 8% of the games," The Athletic KC tweeted.

That's pretty impressive.

Aikman had a pretty good response, though.

"ICYMI: Talk to me when when he has 33% of my Super Bowl Titles," he tweeted.

Well played, Troy.

The former Cowboys star quarterback and NFL Hall of Famer has three Super Bowl titles. Mahomes, of course, has none.

Perhaps he'll get No. 1 this year...
