Patrick Mahomes named NFL MVP for 2nd time in his career

Becomes first MVP named under the new voting system


Just days before Super Bowl LVII, Patrick Mahomes wins his second career MVP honor. This season, he was responsible for 5,250 passing yards (leads NFL), 41 touchdown passes (leads NFL) and a total quartback rating of 77.5 (leads NFL).

The Chiefs’ quarterback received 48 out of 50 votes, beating Jalen Hurts, Josh Allen and Joe Burrow. He came out of the voting with 490 points.

He also set an NFL record 5,614 total yards and played the last two playoff games with a high ankle sprain.

In order to win the MVP, you have to be on a great team and, especially at the quarterback position now, you’re going to have great players around you because while you’re throwing the football, they’ve got to make the plays happen. It’s not only a testament to me but my team because as much as it’s an individual award, it’s a team award as well and I hope my teammates know that. I’m sure they’d be excited for me. I’d hope that they would be. It’s not just me.
