Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes is setting a lofty team goal for the 2021 NFL season straight from his charity golf event in Kealakekua, Hawaii.

Mahomes is out in Hawaii at The Club at Hokuli’a with teammates Travis Kelce and Kyle Long for the first annual “15 and the Mahomies Aloha Golf Classic.” During a break from the action, Mahomes took some time to sit down and talk football with Kayla Nicole for Bleacher Report. During their chat, Mahomes revealed the one record that he has his eyes set on for the 2021 NFL season.

“The only record that I have my eyes set on breaking, which will be new this year, is going 20-0,” Mahomes said. “It’s not really a record to be broken, I guess you would say. I think 19-0 is the record right now, so being able to go 20 and 0, to be the first one to do that would be awesome.”

No team has actually ever gone 19-0 and with the expanded regular season it’s unlikely that any team ever does. The 2007 New England Patriots were the last team to post a perfect regular season, but they’d fall to the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLII. They’d go 18-1 including the Super Bowl loss.

The 1972 Miami Dolphins were the only team during the Super Bowl era to go undefeated in both the regular season and the postseason. The catch is that they played three fewer games than teams would nowadays to accomplish the same feat.

As for the Chiefs, the closest they have ever come to an undefeated season was their 9-0 win streak during 2013. That was during Andy Reid’s first season as head coach and on the heels of a 2-14 season in 2012.

An undefeated 20-0 season will be much easier said than done, but if there’s anything we’ve learned about Mahomes and his team over the past several seasons, it’s that they should never be underestimated.
