At the age of 27, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is already one of the NFL’s all-time greats.
He has two regular-season MVPs to his name and has led the league in touchdown passes twice and passing yards once, not to mention his two Super Bowl championships.
With less than three months to go before the start of the 2023 season, Mahomes made the top spot on CBS Sports’ Pete Prisco’s list of the top 100 players in the league.

Mahomes isn’t just the league’s most prolific passer, but he is also a magician who tends to dominate teams in third and fourth-down situations with passes that seem to challenge everyone’s imaginations.
He led everyone with 5.250 passing yards, a new career-high, while also throwing for a league-high 41 touchdown passes in 2022, which drove the Chiefs to a 14-3 record and earned him league MVP honors.
In the playoffs, Mahomes was as heroic as ever, overcoming a high ankle sprain to lead his team to a very close win over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
Then, in the Super Bowl against the Philadelphia Eagles, he led Kansas City to a flurry in the second half that allowed them to overcome a 10-point halftime deficit and win it all.
Mahomes and the Chiefs will have to go to battle this coming season without the services of JuJu Smith-Schuster, who was their most productive wide receiver in 2022.
But if there’s one thing the world has learned the last few years, it’s to never bet against Mahomes.NEXT: Travis Kelce Reveals How Long He Plans To Play In NFL
