Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes continues to add on to his impressive MVP season after earning the AFC Player of the Month award.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had a stellar month in November. Now, the NFL is recognizing that by honoring him with the AFC Offensive Player of the Month award.
In four games played last month, Mahomes threw for 1,426 yards, nine touchdown passes, and three interceptions. Mahomes also ran 21 times for 161 yards and a touchdown.
Mahomes’ 1,426 passing yards is the most by a quarterback in the month of November. In fact, Mahomes not only leads the NFL in passing yards with 3,585 yards, but he leads by 402 yards with Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills being second in that category. Mahomes also leads the NFL with 29 touchdowns and leads by six touchdowns in that category ahead of Joe Burrow of the Cincinnati Bengals.
Mahomes was instrumental in helping the Chiefs go 4-0 in the month of November. In Week 9 against the Tennessee Titans, Mahomes scored a touchdown on a 14-yard run, followed by a run in on a two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter to tie the game and force overtime to eventually win. Two weeks later against the Los Angeles Chargers, Mahomes threw the game-winning touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce with 31 seconds left on the clock on a six-play drive that took one minute and 15 seconds.
Mahomes has won his 26th consecutive game in the months of November and December combined. In a player’s first 75 NFL games, Mahomes has the most completions, passing yards, touchdown passes, and the highest passer rating of any quarterback ever, doing so in 74 games.
This is Mahomes’ fifth time earning the Player of the Month award. Since 2018, he’s earned the achievement once per year. Since 2018, Mahomes has won the most Player of the Month honors.
