Who is Super Bowl 2020’s MVP Patrick Mahomes?

Super Bowl 2020 is over and done, and Patrick Mahomes won as the MVP (Most Valuable Player).

Who is Patrick Mahomes?

Patrick Lavon Mahomes II was born on September 17, 1995, in Tyler, Texas, US. His parents are Pat Mahomes, an MLB pitcher, and Randi Mahomes. His father gave him the nickname “Showtime.”

He went to Whitehouse High School where he met his would-be long-time partner Brittany Matthews. They now live in a $1.92 million-home located in Kansas City, Missouri. They bought it in 2018.

Mahomes played baseball and football in his first year at Texas Tech University. He later dropped baseball to focus on football. A few years down the road, he became the first alumni to start the Super Bowl.

He founded 15 and the Mahomies Foundation, a nonprofit organization that aims to improve the lives of children. The Foundation supports various charitable initiatives through giving $15,000 grants to 15 charities in Kansas.

Mahomes as a QB to Kansas City Chiefs

Mahomes is a right-handed quarterback to Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs drafted him in the first round, making him the tenth overall pick. 

On his rookie year, he was a backup QB to Alex Smith. After Smith was traded to the Washington Redskins, Mahomes became the starter. He wears jersey number 15.

He has a stellar season as a starter after he threw for 5,097 yards with 50 touchdowns. Mahomes was the only QB to ever did that—throwing for more than 5,000 yards as a college and NFL player.

Also, he was the only one in two NFL players who threw for over 5,000 yards in one season. The other being Peyton Manning.

The epic Super Bowl LIV win

He currently earns $645,000, although it is expected to go up after this historic Super Bowl 2020 win for the Chiefs. The Chiefs waited for 50 years to bring home their first Super Bowl.

The Chiefs were down 10-20 against San Francisco 49ers in the last quarter with only 8:53 on the clock. It was actually the third consecutive match where the Chiefs had a 10-point deficit,

Mahomes changed everything when he ran 21-0, throwing 286 yards and two TDs before rushing for another 29 yards and one TD. The epic win was regarded as the second-biggest comeback in the history of Super Bowl.

Mahomes was one in four African-American QB to win the MVP award. And he could also be the first to land a $200 million contract when his five-year deal with the Chiefs expired in 2022.

Also, when he won the NFL MVP award in 2019, he was the first Chiefs ever to take home the trophy. Mahomes was the youngest to receive such a prestigious award.

NFL Playoffs 2020: San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs

NFL playoffs are over and done. It’s down to two teams for the finals: San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs.

It’s the Super Bowl LIV matchup that stuns every fan

San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs

San Francisco was the No. 1 seed while the Chiefs in the No. 2. The 49ers played the regular season with 13-3 record. 

It was a surprise for the analysts considering the 49ers’ last season’s performance at 4-12. 

The Chiefs, of course, is a different story. This is the team’s second AFC championship appearance for two consecutive seasons — a franchise history.

Interestingly, the Chiefs appeared in the Super Bowl exactly 50 years ago.

This is the first time the 49ers will face the Chiefs in the finals game.

The last time they met was in Week 3 of 2018.

Who will win Super Bowl 2020?

The two teams are the favourites as conference champions. However, it isn’t very easy to predict who will bring home the Vince Lombardi Trophy. 

San Franciso 49ers winning the Super Bowl LIV

Jimmy Garoppolo is the 49ers formulae for landing at the No. 1 seed postseason. The quarterback threw for 349 yards and four touchdowns.

The 49ers also have Nick Bosa, the defensive end whose record 281.8 yards earned him the Rookie of the Year Award from The Sporting News.

A deep defensive front spearheaded by Bosa could be everything that the 49ers to win the finals game.

To continue, the team is second in the points per game ranking (regular season).

Other than that, the team has already played in six Super Bowls, winning five of the games.

The 49ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals (1981, 1988), Miami Dolphins (1984), Denver Broncos (1989), and Los Angeles Chargers (1994). 

However, the team lost nine NFC Championship games.

Kansas City Chiefs winning the Super Bowl LIV

The Chiefs has Patrick Mahomes, the reigning NFL MVP, at its roster. He had three TDs against Tenessee Titans during the AFC Championship game.

Mahomes was also the first player with 300 passing yards, 50 rushing yards, and five TD passes in one NFL postseason game.

A passer like Mahomes or this passing offence, which something the 49ers lacks, is crucial in winning the Super Bowl.

With him, the team becomes fifth in passing yards per game ranking (regular season).

He is also the favourite to win NFL MVP award this year. 

The Chiefs had one Super Bowl title under its belt when it won against the Vikings in 1969.

The team lost two AFC Championship games. 

Who will win the Super Bowl MVP Award?

The Super Bowl MVP award is different from the regular-season award. 

Although, the majority of previous winners are QBs, defensive backs, defensive ends, and even linebackers can be named the Super Bowl MVP.

Sports analysts are predicting any of these players could win it.

  • Patrich Mahomes
  • Jimmy Garoppolo
  • Raheem Mostert
  • George Kittle
  • Travis Kelce
  • Tyreek Hill
  • Nick Bosa
