He started the next year as a starting QB for the Chiefs, leading them to a phenomenal Super Bowl victory for the team and the Super Bowl MVP in 2019 for himself. The following year, Mahomes fell shy of just a win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to brand himself a two-time Super Bowl winner.

However, during his two-year stay with the franchise, his achievements pronounced his hold in the quarterback spot for the next ten years. As Patrick Mahomes on July 2020 signed a ten-year contract extension worth up to $503 million, making him a Chief until 2031.

With Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers playing at the later stages of their careers, Patrick is comparatively very young to them. And by the look of his competence and playmaking skills, he is by far the best quarterback in the league of his age. Patrick has still a long way to go as he has just got started, and if he continues to retain his form just like that, he may end up being the best quarterback in NFL history.
