Changing the League
After earning the 2018 NFL MVP and winning Super Bowl LIV with a Super Bowl MVP under his belt, Patrick Mahomes became the face of the NFL.
After his ridiculous 2018 season where he threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, the talk of the NFL offseason was the Chiefs being Super Bowl LIV favorites. This mainly included questions about how to stop the Kansas City offense and the rest of the AFC West drafting/signing players to counter just the Chiefs. The Las Vegas Raiders even drafted Henry Ruggs III to be their version of Tyreek Hill for deep pass plays and jet sweeps.
Mahomes is also a force to be reckoned with at all times of the season. He alone makes defensive coordinators scream in frustration as very few have been able to slow him down. This stat alone will scare any defense:
Since Mahomes has entered the league he has stomped all expectations. Even more so in the playoffs, as since 2018, he is No. 1 in passing yards and No. 1 in passing touchdowns in playoff games.
The big takeaway from these stats is that they are coming from three seasons of greatness. He has shown consistency in playing at an elite level every season even when he plays injured or is missing key weapons.
Patrick Mahomes is also shaping the NFL by breaking countless records.
The speed at which he won an MVP and a Super Bowl was a testament to how great he’ll be and if he adds another title to the collection, he could be the youngest player in NFL history to win multiple Super Bowls. These are all incredibly difficult to break and his name will be in the books for quite some time.
