Give this man the MVP: Season highlights show why Patrick Mahomes is the NFL’s top player
Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is on the verge of winning the second MVP award of his career, and it’s not hard to see why.
Mahomes led the NFL in statistics like yards, touchdowns and quarterback ranking and lapped the field in metrics like expected points added. He broke an NFL single-season record with 5,614 yards. A league-high 6.3% of his throws resulted in touchdowns. He had a career-high four game-winning drives. He threw a touchdown in every game he played and multiple touchdowns in all but five.
So it’s widely expected Mahomes’ name will be called during Thursday’s NFL Awards event. Before that happens, The Star looked back at the season as a whole and his big accomplishments in each game. Those are encapsulated in a special edition of The Star.
Subscribers can view the e-edition of that section, and anyone can order a print of it mailed to their home.
