While Mahomes’ love for collection is great, his focus is still on the field. Mahomes is the brightest young talent in the NFL today.

In just 4 seasons in the NFL, Mahomes has become a league MVP and a Super Bowl winner. However, the end of the last season is sure to leave a bitter taste in his mouth.

Mahomes and the Chiefs entered the 2020 NFL season as the defending champions. And from the get-go, they looked like the favorites.

They were virtually unstoppable, and ended the season with a spectacular 14-1 record, the best in the entire league. Entering the Playoffs, the Chiefs looked even better, vanquishing everyone in front of them.

However, the Super Bowl was a rude awakening. The Chiefs lost the Super Bowl to the Buccaneers in an embarrassing fashion. Mahomes wasn’t able to throw for a single touchdown, despite him still being the best player for his team that night.

Can Patrick Mahomes lead the Kansas City Chiefs back to a Super Bowl? He is still very young in his career, as is the Chiefs’ core. If they are able to address the concerns in their defensive unit, the Chiefs will be a major contender next season as well.
