Patrick Mahomes is the Super Bowl MVP

He threw multiple interceptions for the first time since the 54-51 loss to the Rams more than a year ago. And then he went to work and earned the Super Bowl MVP trophy.

Patrick Mahomes, one season after winning the NFL MVP award, gets the only MVP award that really matters.

“It’s something I’ve wanted to say my whole life,” Mahomes said after the game. “I’m going to Disney World.”

Mahomes completed 26 of 42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns along with the two interceptions. He also rushed for 29 yards on nine carries, along with the game’s first touchdown.

Running back Damien Williams deserved some consideration, with 104 rushing yards, 29 receiving yards, and two touchdowns. Tyreek Hill caught nine passes for 105 yards.

But Mahomes was the best player on the field. After his second interception, the 49ers had a 10-point lead with the ball and only 12:05 to play. Mahomes led the Chiefs to 21 straight points down the stretch, finishing a postseason that included the reversal of a double-digit deficit in each game.

  1. 2 INTs = MVP over D Williams. Really?

    By proxy, Eli Manning is 1st ballot.

    Side note Giants are trying to acquire Buckner and plan to sign Armstead in FA.

  2. 2 ints, 2 fumbles and 4 sacks… this was not a good choice. I would have voted for Bashaud Breeland and Hill also would have been a better selection.

  3. 2 years as a starter
    2 AFC Championship appearances
    1 Super Bowl victory
    1 League MVP award
    1 Super Bowl MVP award

    Let’s hear from the “It’s too early to call Mahomes great” crowd.

    I think I’ll go ahead and call him great.

  4. Congrats to a great young man!

    Now the big question is who will be the mvp of the Barney brigade’s 59th straight off-season championship?

  5. I wonder if the NFL will suspend Him for 4 games next year for too much conditioner in his hair or some made up controversy. Isn’t that what they’re supposed to do with SB MVPs? Time will tell. Out with the old, in with the new next year.

  6. Congrats Chiefs. Glad they won because they gotta pay Mahomes now and it gets a lot tougher then and they don’t have a ton of cap space.

  7. Mahomes is the NFL MVP. Jackson’s selection was a joke.

    If you were starting a team and could pick one player, who would it be? Mahomes of course.

  8. The best part of this game is the Chiefs winning and shutting up Richard Sherman, who by the way was burned on one of the key plays in the game. Love seeing his sour demeanor after this loss.
    Congratulations to the Chiefs and their fans and especially to Andy Reid, one of the best guys in the NFL.
    Now we can read all the whiny Niners fans complaining about the officials (who made all the right calls, by the way) and everything else as they always do.

  9. Hm. To all the 49er fans that trolled us Falcon fans after our super bowl loss… karma. Looks like it wasn’t so much Matt Ryan — who outplayed both of these QB’s in the SB — and more a guy named Kyle Shanahan, eh?

  10. I thought the 9ers had it good up by 10 with 10mins to play. Great comeback win for KC, congrats to them and to Andy Reid for his 1st SB win.

    I agree with others here about Williams not getting MVP, he was a baller.

  11. If Mitchell Trubisky played like that everyone would be talking about how terrible he is. Mahomes is a good quarterback, but the 49ers blew this game. They left the Chiefs receivers wide open in the fourth quarter.

    Bosa being held on every play and not one call.
    How do you miss an off-side?
    Weird how the refs always moved the ball up a half yard for the Chiefs and a half yard back for the 49ers.

  13. Difference was Mahomes hit a wide open Hill that led to a TD and cutting the 9ers lead to 3 at 20-17 on 3rd and long while JimmyGoof over threw a wide open receiver that likely would’ve won the SB with a 27-24 lead and Momentum.

    Jimmy G is decent but is clearly just a game manager that relies on a running game to destroy Vikes and GB and an elite D. But Jimmy can’t carry a team to a SB like Mahomes.

  14. He was having a pretty bad game until half way through the 4th quarter. Many of those throws were behind or low. Happy he got the win and balled out to close the game.

    Chris Jones was tearing it up. Frank Clark nearly closed off the game himself.

  15. Anyone saying Mahomes didn’t deserve the MVP does not understand football.

    If you think this team wins the game or even makes it here with any other player in the league at QB, you are sorely mistaken. The 49ers have been brutalizing people all year and #15 willed the Chiefs to victory. If you watched the game and don’t understand that, I don’t know what to tell you.

  16. Watching the QB play in this game makes me ever so grateful that Russell Wilson is my quarterback…

  17. Chiefs played a great game and got a well earned victory. Saleh obviously skipped watching the AFC playoff tape and let off the gas defensively.

  18. Yeah he might of had a sub par performance but he was clutch when it had to be clutch, that’s magical, and the kid is magical.

  19. People still hating on him absolutely amazing. Holy crap the jealousy is crazy. One interception bounced off two players, the 9er d played great and he responded along with the line actually giving him some time. 2nd year

  20. Congrats to Mahomes and well deserve because if Mahomes had left the field and didn’t Return you are NEVER coming back to win this game muchless even being in the Superbowl to begin with.

  21. Big Mahomes fan, but he didn’t deserve the MVP. That’s the problem I have with Brady and all this GOAT talk. He didn’t do much in the first 3 NE superbowl wins. Game manager at best. And do give me the 350 yars

    Well deserved! More so then when Foles won it. What a fluke that was. GO CHEFS!!!

    ————–

    You are a MORON. Go compare Foles numbers in the superbowl vs Mahomes. Not even close. Mahomes did NOT deserve the superbowl MVP tonight, he was terrible.

  23. Mahomes had a lot of negative stats, maybe the worst ever for an MVP?

    That said, by default the award is going to the quarterback and he did put the team on his back when they needed it: an early touchdown to keep it close, shrugging off some big hits and sealing the deal late in the fourth.

  24. Mahomes was terrible tonight. This was just a matter of the fact that there was no one else. Mahomes got it be default. Happy for kc. But that was not an mvp performance.

    ————-
    Wow obsessed much today is not about the Vikings or the team from Wisconsin with the whiny qb.

  26. Best QB by far in league.
    Would have been 2nd SB win had the idiot not lined up off sides after already having the Pats beat last year.
    Overcame a 14 point swing after bouncing he ball off the receivers hands for a fluke pick in addition to another pick.
    Jimmy G is a 2nd round pick over paid game manager that cost a Superior D the game.

  27. I think Damien Williams should’ve got it after icing the game with that TD run, but there was only a minute left and most of the voting was probably already done at that point, so Mahomes makes sense. He honestly had one of the worst games I’ve seen him play, but when you’re as talented as Mahomes you can make up for that real quick. Congrats to the Chiefs and their fans.

  28. “…Mahomes led the Chiefs to 21 straight points down the stretch…”

    Okay, if that is not MVP worthy, then I don’t know what is. This kid is clutch.

    Where was that vaunted 9er defense that the talking heads couldn’t stop gushing over the last two weeks?

    Where was that monster RB Mostert that the Chiefs D wasn’t good enough to stop?

    BTW what, exactly, were the 9ers doing while the Champs were scoring 21 unanswered points?

  29. The come from behind Chiefs of 2019-20, rival the come from behind Royals of 2015. Both squads did it the hard way and the convincing way.

    All Hail the Super Chiefs!

  30. Proof the fix was in for KC to win. Hated to see KC win but if Williams is there they lose. Now the off-season Mahomes slurpfest will be even worse. I shut it off after the last interception, did he count to 10 and shake his head to taunt the 49ers who could have picked him at 3? Yeah, I thought not, just a punk. Shameful that the NFL promotes this team to win. Happiest people in KC this week are Hill’s wife/ girlfriend and the kids, they should be safe – at least for a couple of days. Chiefs are the most unlikable team in the league, second only to the Cowboys.

  31. Didn’t Bill Vinovich “ref” the nfc championship game last year? Saints/rams? How does he keep getting good gigs??? Is he the new “fix guy”?

  32. Vinovich should be able to retire comfortably after this game and the Saints Rams nfc championship game. Would love to track his Swiss bank account.

  33. Some of these are funny. Mahomes is a punk!?! Seriously. Hater! The game was fixed? It was the refs that didn’t tackle D-will or let Hill get wide open? If the game was fixed, the Chiefs sure did it the hardest way possible. You don’t like winners?

  34. After this game, I give it up to Patrick Mahomes. Before, I thought he was overhyped. But that kind of talent, smarts, and will to win deserve all the accolades. Congratulations to him, Andy Reid, and Chiefs. It was a fun SB to watch, and a great win!

  36. Damien Williams is the MVP! Over 100 yards on this great D! Scored go-ahead and put away td’s meanwhile Mahomes played like hot garbage with respect given to the 49ers D… doesn’t change how he played. An take away the 3rd down prayer his numbers would look that much worse.

    ================

    Now that’s ridiculous. Foles played one of the greatest games ever by a QB in a Super Bowl, arguable the best ever.

  38. They couldn’t have won it without Mahomes, but overall not a great game from him. But it was a great game for Williams, without qualification, so it seems he may deserve it a bit more.

    Not as egregious as when James White got snubbed for it, but still.

  39. The 49’ers looked and played exhausted in the 4th Q. They had their hands on their hips in-between players which is a sign of exhaustion. They were run over by KC. Mahomes had 2 ints and 2 fumbles (that were not turnovers). D. Williams should have been the MVP but everybody loves Mahomes. I don’t know what happened to the 49’ers offense in the 2nd Half either.

    I think Richard Sherman just gave up another long pass….

  41. Chiefs aer readying a 9 figure contract for their superman as early as NOW. Bye Chris Jones, we’ll miss you. Please don’t go to the Raiders!

  42. All Pro
    League MVP
    Superbowl winner and MVP
    All in first 3 years.
    Meanwhile the genius Bears traded up to take Trubustky instead.
    Enjoy the suck Bears.

  43. I think Mahomes wins MVP a bit by default. Williams could have gotten it as well.
    Regardless of the award, the bottom line is that Mahomes is as good a QB as we have seen in a long, long time. He can run and is athletic, but he’s not a running QB; he’s a thrower first and that is the way to succeed over the long haul at the position. Unlike what the NFL and Ravens want you to believe.
    Let’s cool it with the GOAT talk. Can’t we just enjoy watching a good kid who’s a great QB win his first Super Bowl and feel great about his potential career versus putting him on the GOAT pedestal and comparing him to Brady? There’s no comparison. Let’s check back in on this topic 10-15 years from now. Then, and only then, could there be a possibility of a debate.
    I want to see Mahomes win when his roster is not as stacked offensively as it currently is because of the salary cap flexibility his rookie contract provides. I still think he will be successful, but I think it won’t be as easy as it has been because he does have incredible talent at the receiver position and O line.

  44. To those questioning Mahomes MVP due to 2 INTs, he also passed for 286 yards, 2 TDs and ran for a 3rd TD in crunch time. Damien Williams was very good but Mahomes was the MVP on the field.

  45. There was a pre game announcer , a minority , touting it was the first time there were 4 or 5 referees , minority’s, for the first time ever officiating the Super Bowl … how many times did KC defenders rush in and hit Jimmy in the head that were not called , is it a foul or not a foul … it always has been but you know it was ok to hold Bosa on that long pass lol I have no dog in the fight … but C’mon man ! Don’t believe me go and watch the replays .. it was a pro Patric officiating crew . Hook line a sinker.

  46. Mahomes was having the worst game I’ve ever seen. They had him rattled and good. The reason he’s so great, is because he *can* shake it, get his team’s heads back in the game and turn it around. Just like that, it’s his leadership that does it. 2nd quarter, 4th, whatever. They can turn it on when they need to. As anyone watching in the postseason should be able to attest to. As far as the refs, there were more calls on KC and a whole lot of calls on both sides they didn’t make.
