Patrick Mahomes Named AFC Offensive Player of the Month

Mahomes currently leads the NFL in passing yards and touchdowns

November was a month to remember for Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and his performance – which included a perfect 4-0 record – earned him some hardware from the league.

Mahomes was named the "AFC Offensive Player of the Month" on Thursday after leading all players in completions (116), passing yards (1,426) and passing touchdowns (9) during the month of November. He also rushed for 161 yards and a score on the ground. Additionally, Mahomes threw for at least 300 yards in all four of his November contests.

The 27-year-old Mahomes is making a strong case to win his second MVP award this season, as he currently leads the NFL in passing yards (3,585) and passing touchdowns (29). He also made some league history this past week, setting a new NFL record for wins (59) through a quarterback's first 75 career starts.

Mahomes is the only player to earn at least one "Player of the Month" award in each of the past five seasons, and with another accolade now in-hand, he'll look to keep things rolling into December as the Chiefs take aim at the top seed in the AFC playoff picture.
