Super Bowl LVIII was another one of their magical plays as the Kansas City Chiefs broke through to rise against the 49ers. The team, though had a slow start, dominated the overtime under Patrick Mahomes’ lead to put up 25-22. In the process of it, and beyond, the quarterback was seldom away from the comparisons against Tom Brady.

The former quarterback, Tom Brady is widely regarded as one of the best to have played the position. Today, upon joining him on a record, Patrick Mahomes revealed his insights on the persistent comparisons between the two.

Patrick Mahomes has undoubtedly been one of the best NFL players in recent times. The 28-year-old, in the process of it, is well-set on attaining a legendary status. Thus, a comparison between Brady and him is never far away amongst the keen followers of the sport. But for the latter, it is always going to be a tough one to listen to. “To me, it will always be tough because Brady beat me in the Super Bowl,” Mahomes said referring to Buccaneers defeating Mahomes and the Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV.

Nonetheless, Patrick Mahomes’ Chiefs joined Brady’s Patriots in becoming only the two teams in this century to secure two back-to-back SBs. He also joined Tom Brady and Joe Montana in the category of players who have at least 3 Super Bowl MVP awards to their name. Interestingly, that wasn’t all. With last night’s numbers framing Mahomes’ firm presence, there is more to add to the duo’s stats as the 2023 Super Bowl MVP continues to grow.

Chiefs vs 49ers showdown on Sunday earned Patrick Mahomes his 3rd Super Bowl victory. While Tom Brady sits well on top owning 7 of the titles. But then again, the former was 28 years old when he secured his third title while Brady did it aged 37; meaning, Mahomes is quite on road to catching up. But that is the extent for now. Because, Brady visibly reigns atop in leading the league in multiple regular season stats.

The 7-time champion is the all-time leader in passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions, attempts, and quarterback wins. In rate stats, Mahomes races ahead in yards per game, stands second in passer rating, and ranks tied for seventh all-time in yards per attempt. Away from the numbers though, Patrick Mahomes believes he has a long way to go to reach the NFL legend.

“I mean, I’m not even close to halfway… And then, if you ask me that question in 15 years, I’ll see if I can get close to seven. But seven seems like a long way away still,” he adds. Whatever the current status, only time will present the rising status of the two.
