Mahomes becomes youngest QB to win Super Bowl MVP
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named MVP of Super Bowl LIV after throwing two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and rushing for another one earlier in a 31-20 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
At 24 years and 138 days old, Mahomes is the youngest quarterback in Super Bowl history to win the MVP, joining Tom Brady as the only players to capture the award before turning 25.
The star passer is the third-youngest player to win Super Bowl MVP overall, trailing only Marcus Allen (23 years, 301 days) and Lynn Swann (23 years, 315 days).
Mahomes will celebrate his accomplishment at Disney World, making good on a tweet he posted in 2013:
The Chiefs trailed by 10 in the fourth quarter but scored three touchdowns in the final 6:13 to surge ahead and capture their first title since Super Bowl IV.
Mahomes finished his Super Bowl debut 26-for-42 for 286 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He rushed for 29 yards and a score.
Drafted 10th overall out of Texas Tech in 2017, Mahomes already has an MVP award, a Lombardi Trophy, and a Super Bowl MVP award on his resume.
