We will be writing stories about our NFL Awards for the conclusion of the 2018 season. Our MVP Award is being award to Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Prior to this season, Mahomes had just one career start. He went 22 of 35 for 284 yards in the team’s season finale in a 27-24 win over the Denver Broncos.

In the off-season, the Chiefs cleared the way for Mahomes to take over the offense. The team traded Alex Smith, the former starter, to the Washington Redskins.

This season, in his first season as a starter, Mahomes has been magical. He guided the Chiefs to a 12-4 record and the No. seed in the AFC playoffs.

Mahomes went 383 of 580 yards for 5,097 yards. He also had 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

He became just the third quarterback in NFL history, who had 50 touchdowns in a season. Mahomes joined Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to accomplish this feat.

Brady had 50 touchdown passes during the 2007 season. Manning had a season-best 55 touchdown passes in 2013.

Mahomes had two games this season, where he threw for six touchdowns. The first one came when he went 23 of 28 for 326 yards in a 42-37 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had six touchdowns and one interception in the game.

The other time he had six touchdowns was when he went 33 of 46 for 478 yards in a 54-51 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football. Mahomes had six touchdowns and three interceptions in the game.

His worst game in terms was passing yardage came in Week 15. He went 24 of 34 for 243 yards in a 29-28 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. He had two touchdowns and two interceptions in the contest.
