Patrick Mahomes is a busy man these days.
He’s getting set to play in his third Super Bowl this upcoming Sunday and he’s also up for the NFL’s MVP Award, which will be handed out on Thursday night at 9 p.m. ET.
Mahomes is a heavy favorite to win the award after leading the league in passing yards (5,250) and touchdown passes (41) this season.
When he was asked about how he’d feel if he won it, he said he’d be over the moon while also acknowledging that it’s a team award (outside of an individual award.
“It would mean the world,” Mahomes said, via ProFootballTalk. “To be able to win that award, it’s so special. It’s so hard to do. There are so many greats that have won that award, and to be a part of that history is amazing. It’s definitely something that you want to look back at your career and say that you’ve got that award. To be able to win that again, it’s not only a testament to me but my team because as much as it is an individual award, it’s a team award as well and I hope my teammates know that.”
There’s no doubt he’ll give a lot of credit to his teammates during his acceptance speech if he wins the award.
The NFL Awards will take place at 9 p.m. ET on NBC.
