Mahomes beat out New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for this award. The 39-year-old Austin, Texas native guided the Saints to a 13-2 record this season in 15 starts.

He went 364 of 489 for 3,992 yards. He also had 32 touchdowns and five interceptions.

The Chiefs signal-caller also received our 2018 NFL MVP Award.

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.
