“Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes Wins Historic Second MVP Award, Joining Elite Club”

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has added another impressive accolade to his already impressive resume. On Thursday, the NFL announced that Mahomes was named the 2022 Most Valuable Player, becoming the tenth player in NFL history to win the award multiple times.

Mahomes was previously named the 2018 MVP and is the first quarterback to win the award in consecutive years since Peyton Manning in 2008-2009. He is also the first player to win the MVP award in a Super Bowl-winning season since Aaron Rodgers in 2011.

The 25-year-old quarterback has been a fan favorite since his rookie season in 2017 and has led the Chiefs to three straight playoff appearances, two AFC Championships, and a Super Bowl victory.

Mahomes is the first Chief to win the award multiple times and the first player to win it in the same season as a Super Bowl victory since Kurt Warner in 1999.

In Thursday’s Sports in Brief, the NFL also awarded the 2021 Defensive Player of the Year to Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald. Donald is the first Rams player to win the award since 1999.

Mahomes’ MVP win adds to his already impressive list of accomplishments, which includes being the fastest player to reach 10,000 passing yards and 100 touchdowns and the youngest player to win the Super Bowl MVP award.

The Chiefs quarterback will look to add to his legacy as the team prepares to defend their Super Bowl title in the upcoming season.
