Patrick Mahomes, the superstar quarterback of the Kansas City Chiefs, had yet another spectacular season, and in advance of his fifth consecutive appearance in the AFC Championship Game, he has received his first major award of 2023.

It was announced that he was named the Pro Football Writers of America’s MVP award.

While the award isn’t the official MVP award recognized by the NFL, it is still a big accomplishment.

It is the second time he has been named the PFWA MVP, with the first coming in 2018, which was only his second in the league.

That year, he took the football world by storm, throwing for an incredible 5,097 yards and 50 touchdowns while leading Kansas City to a 12-4 record.

The year before, the team had Alex Smith under center, and although Smith played well and made the Pro Bowl, it traded him the following offseason because of the belief it had in Mahomes.

This year, Mahomes registered 5,250 passing yards and 41 touchdown passes, leading the NFL in both categories, despite losing standout wide receiver Tyreek Hill during the offseason.

The Chiefs still went 14-3, which was the best record in the AFC, during the regular season, even though many picked the Buffalo Bills to have the most wins in the conference and represent it in the Super Bowl.

But the Bills got routed in the divisional round last weekend by the Cincinnati Bengals, leaving an opening for the Chiefs to advance to the Super Bowl for the third time in the last four years.

Unfortunately, Mahomes will have to lead his team to victory over the Bengals with a sprained ankle, but based on what he has done over the last few years, one should not be surprised if he manages to do so.
