Mahomes won his first NFL MVP title in 2018. He followed that up by leading the Chiefs to the Super Bowl LIV title the following season. This was the Chiefs’ first Lombardi win since 1970, a gap of 50 years.

Mahomes was crucial for the Chiefs as they made a playoff run last season. He went 27 of 36, throwing for 337 yards with 3 passing touchdowns to his name.

He will once again be at the forefront for the Chiefs as they take on Lamar Jackson-led Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens are yet to win a game this season. They will look to make the most of the home support at the M&T Bank Stadium this weekend.
