In the middle of the third quarter Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs were nursing a 23-14 lead and facing fourth and one at the Denver 23-yard-line. And for a moment, anyway, coach Andy Reid pondered kicking a field goal.

Something kicked in instead: the abundant reality around him that with every game is proving more and more to be a rare convergence — and that in this 30-23 victory illustrated anew that this offense only be stopped by itself and makes anything possible for this team.

While he deliberated, one way or another it occurred to Reid that he has at his disposal in Patrick Mahomes a quarterback who has produced more yards and touchdown passes in his first nine games than anyone in NFL history.
