Make way for Patrick Mahomes to be on the list of greatest quarterbacks of all time. Winning his third Super Bowl title ties him with Earl Morrall and Troy Aikman for the third-most wins in the biggest game of an NFL season.
What’s scary is that he is just 28 years old and has much football left in him. Their dominance has just started, especially when the Kansas City Chiefs became the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots.
In the postgame interview with the CBS Sports broadcast crew for Super Bowl 58, Mahomes shared that he can’t fathom comparing himself to Tom Brady because he lost to the seven-time Super Bowl winner twice in the playoffs.
But while he is on his way to building a comparable career to the winningest quarterback of all time, what’s certain is that Mahomes doesn’t have any ounce of quit on him. Facing double-digit deficits in the Super Bowl doesn’t rattle him.
In Super Bowl 54, he led the Chiefs to victory despite staring at a ten-point disadvantage with six minutes left in regulation. Three years later, Mahomes led Kansas City to victory in Super Bowl 57 despite staring at a 24-14 deficit against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Finally, the San Francisco 49ers scored the first ten points in Super Bowl 58. It didn’t matter because the Chiefs earned their fourth Lombardi Trophy via a 25-22 overtime decision.
Mahomes finished the game with 34 completions for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. He also led the team with 66 rushing yards. Those numbers earned him his third Super Bowl MVP award. It won’t be his last, given that he is at the peak of his career. The Chiefs are in a great position to win more Super Bowls, even if they face a deficit.
