Following the monumental victory, Mahomes voiced that he already has his eyes on securing another Super Bowl win to his resume.
Chiefs top 49ers in Super Bowl 54
The Chiefs, heading into Super Bowl 54, were the slight favorites in the contest over the 49ers. It was a game that played out tightly with it being a back-and-forth matchup.
San Francisco grabbed a 10-point advantage going into the fourth quarter. Still, it was entirely Kansas City in the final period of regulation as Mahomes stepped in the clutch like he has throughout the playoffs as he brought his team back from that deficit.
He helped guide the team to three straight touchdown scoring drives with the first two capped off by a touchdown pass while the final one sealed the win on a 38-yard run by running back Damien Williams. Mahomes had a knack for overcoming double-digit deficits in the 2019 campaign that saw him hold a 5-0 record in such games, including 3-0 in the playoffs.
Mahomes is the first quarter to lead his team back from three double-digit deficits in a single postseason. Mahomes earned the Super Bowl MVP award after with 286 passing yards along with three total touchdowns. It win made him the youngest player to secure a Super Bowl win and an MVP award in NFL history.
Patrick Mahomes is aiming for another Super Bowl win
In his first three years in the league, Mahomes has experienced a tremendous amount of success at a historic rate. He has established himself as an elite player in the league that is now the face of the NFL.
Mahomes has accomplished plenty in his brief career that he has put a promising future ahead of himself and the franchise. The morning after securing his first Super Bowl win, the 24-year-old has his eyes set on earning a second win on that stage.
“Win another one. That’s it.”
The fact that he is already thinking about another Super Bowl speaks to the lasered-in focus that he has with his craft. Mahomes is always thinking about what lies next, even after winning his first Super Bowl in what is already a career-defining moment.
It’s the mental approach that he has that provides that extra lift beyond his extraordinary talent on the field. That has helped him reach this level of success so early in his career and could position him to experience much of that ahead in Kansas City for years to come.
Patrick Mahomes’ future ahead
It’s hard to envision Mahomes reaching another level of effectiveness on the field, but that is certainly possible in the many years ahead. He has become a dynamic talent that can change the game with his arm at any moment while the playoff run proved he could lead his team back from any deficit.
That is the definition of a franchise quarterback, and he’s done that all before the age of 25. It’s what makes him unique and could drive him to reach a level of success that could one day rival what Tom Brady has done with the New England Patriots over the last two decades.
Yes, it’s quite early to make those type of comparisons, but his talent and leadership is undeniable on and off the field. It may just be the start of an incredible run that could see him place himself firmly among the all-time greats.
