How many times has Patrick Mahomes played in the Super Bowl? How many rings has he won?
Last year’s MVP comes into the big game as a slight underdog but something tells us the Chiefs’ star will prove that wrong.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been having a great NFL season after winning the Super Bowl LVIII and the final MVP award against Brock Purdy and the San Francisco 49ers. He humbled Lamar Jackson and the Ravens, despite the former being the heavy favorite for this year’s MVP award, and Mahomes has now set himself up for yet another shot at the Lombardi trophy. The 28-year-old has already built up an impressive resumé in his seven seasons with the league. He led the Chiefs to six consecutive appearances at the AFC Championship game since the franchise named him the starting quarterback.

He first led Kansas City to the championship game in the 2019 season, the team’s first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years. They proceeded to win against the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. Mahomes was honored as the match’s MVP.
The Texas Tech alumnus led his team to the finals two years in a row. However, they lost the chance to win back-to-back victories when they were defeated by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-9. In Super Bowl LVII, the young quarterback staged an impressive comeback in the second half and secured a 38-35 win against the heavily favored Philadelphia Eagles. Mahomes has now won his third Super Bowl ring after his team, the Chiefs, won again on Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas, defeating the Niners 22-25 in overtime. They had once again defied the odds and came out victorious in this playoff run.
