Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes wins 2022 NFL MVP

For the second time in his already legendary career, Patrick Mahomes is the NFL MVP.

Statistically, Mahomes was better in 2022 in passing yards, totaling 5,250 over his 17 games – the fourth-most in NFL history — with 41 touchdowns to 12 interceptions.

Both his passing yards and touchdowns stats led the league. 

This past off-season, it was said all over by the media that Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offense would struggle with Tyreek Hill being traded to the Miami Dolphins, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They were the NFL’s leading offense in terms of points scored per game (29.2), total yards (413.6) and passing yards (297.8). 

Meanwhile, the Dolphins missed the postseason.

With his second MVP, Mahomes becomes the third-youngest player in NFL history to win two MVP awards. Jim Brown had multiple when he was 22 years old and 300 days, making him the youngest. Brett Favre comes in second just days under Mahomes (27 years, 73 days compared to 27 years, 113 days). 

Mahomes and the Chiefs square off against Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII this Sunday.
