Leading Kansas City to a thrilling 25-22 overtime win against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes won his second straight Super Bowl MVP award and third overall on Sunday night in Las Vegas.

Guiding the Chiefs to back-to-back titles and their third in the past five seasons, the 28-year-old Mahomes joins Joe Montana as three-time winners, trailing only Tom Brady, who won the award five times.

With the Chiefs trailing 22-19 in overtime, Mahomes engineered a 13-play, 75-yard drive and tossed the game-winning 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman with three seconds left. Mahomes finished 34-of-46 passing for 333 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also led Kansas City in rushing with 66 yards on nine carries.

En route to the Super Bowl, Mahomes led the Chiefs to road wins over the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens, his first playoff games away from Arrowhead Stadium.

In addition to earning three Super Bowl titles and three Super Bowl MVP awards, Mahomes has been the NFL MVP twice and the Offensive Player of the Year once. He is also a six-time Pro Bowl selection in his six seasons as a starter.
