'Grateful!' Patrick Mahomes Wins ESPYs Award for Best NFL Player

'Grateful!' Patrick Mahomes Wins ESPYs Award for Best NFL Player

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been named the winner of the ESPY for Best NFL Player, it was announced Wednesday. He beat out a group that also included San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Mahomes reacted to the news on X (Twitter):

"Grateful. Thank you @ESPYS," Mahomes tweeted.

Last season was considered a "down" year by Mahomes' standards. He finished the regular season 401 of 597 passing for 4,183 yards, 27 touchdowns and a career-high 14 interceptions, but still ended winning his second straight Super Bowl MVP and third overall.

Mahomes is already on track for being considered the best quarterback in NFL history. With three Super Bowl wins, he's just one more shy of being over halfway toward Tom Brady's seven rings. Considering how he continues to handle himself as a leader while remaining dominant on the field, it's going to be harder to doubt that the 28-year-old won't someday catch the GOAT.
