At the age of 28, Patrick Mahomes became the youngest player in NFL history to win MVP of the Super Bowl three times.
Additionally, he just made history by defeating the San Francisco 49ers 25–22 in overtime at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday. This victory puts him one step closer to becoming the greatest of all time.
Along the way, Mahomes won three Super Bowls while trailing by at least 10 points in each game—something that not even Tom Brady was able to accomplish. TB12 carried it out twice.
In case you find it hard to accept this evidence of his magnificence, Mahomes has also become the world’s first person to toss a touchdown pass in overtime during a Super Bowl, dating back to when Brady’s New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in overtime in the LI edition, the play that defined the triumph was a two-yard carry by James White. This time it was a three yarder from the aforementioned Mahomes to Mecole Hardman.

It is a fact that Mahomes is still far from Brady’s seven Vince Lombardi Trophies and 35 playoff wins, but only TB12 and Joe Montana (16) have more postseason victories and rings.
And then we return to the thought that Mahomes still does not know what it feels like to be eliminated before the AFC Championship with two seasons remaining before he 30th birthday.
Patrick Mahomes completed 34 of 46 passes for 333 yards with two touchdowns and one interception to win Super Bowl MVP.
