Patrick Mahomes

If Patrick Mahomes decided that after this season he’d hang up his cleats for good, there’s a possibility he’d be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame at some point in his life. It’s not a given, but Gale Sayers was inducted on the strength of five seasons. It’s uncommon, but not unheard of.

Obviously, there’s no sentiment that he would. The point is, in just his first few years Mahomes has cemented his place as one of the greatest Chiefs players of all time. Once it’s all said and done, it’s hard to imagine he won’t top that mountain.

Mahomes has been nearly unstoppable in the NFL playoffs. According to CBS Sports, in the five playoff games Mahomes has played, the Chiefs are averaging an incredible 35.8 points per game. They have never scored less than 31 points and every victory has been by 11 points or more.

The 2019 playoffs, and the reason he easily makes this list, were no different. During those three games, the Chiefs averaged a whopping 39 points per game. Mahomes 13 touchdowns total were the most ever in one postseason in NFL history.

Because of his play, Mahomes became the youngest player to ever win Super Bowl MVP. He’s now the youngest player to win a regular season MVP, the Super Bowl and Super Bowl MVP. His performance in the playoffs has been incredible.

The list goes on and on, but it’s obvious that Mahomes already deserves a spot on this list. It’s hard to imagine he won’t hold the top spot in almost every list in Chiefs history once his career is over.
