Last night, Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP after the Kansas City Chiefs were able to pull out a gritty victory.
Even though Mahomes was named for the award, there is a positional group that could have achieved this award as well.
Facing the team with the second most sacks in a single season in NFL history, the Chiefs’ offensive line allowed ZERO sacks.
An epic performance.

Coming into the Super Bowl, many narratives were spiraling around.
Yes, the Philadelphia Eagles had an incredible defense as a whole, but their biggest strength coming into this game was supposed to be their defensive line.
During the regular season, not only did the Eagles lead the league in sacks, but they had four separate players with over ten sacks.
In this crucial battle, it was the Chiefs offensive line that was able to come away victorious, despite prior reporting.
They didn’t give up any sacks during the entire game, a true testament to the strength of their line.
Heading into the game, many NFL pundits believed that, eventually, the Eagles defensive front would be able to get to Mahomes.
Even though he was still suffering from an ankle injury, the O-line was able to stave off the Eagles defenders enough, and as a result, didn’t surrender a single sack.
The combination of Creed Humphrey, Joe Thuney, Orlando Brown Jr., Trey Smith, and Andrew Wylie was masterful last night.
One player of note was Humphrey, as he was a second-round pick in the 2021 draft, and has been able to find instant success at a position that has proven to be difficult to adapt to at the highest level.NEXT: Veteran Chiefs QB Goes Out On Top
