Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the AFC "Offensive Player of the Week" on Wednesday after completing 27-of-34 passes for 298 yards and two touchdowns in the Kansas City Chiefs' victory over Las Vegas last weekend.
Mahomes was instrumental in leading the Chiefs back from an early 14-point deficit on Sunday, completing 9-of-12 passes for 124 yards and a touchdown on Kansas City's back-to-back scoring drives after falling behind by two touchdowns. He then engineered a 10-play, 75-yard scoring drive that put the Chiefs ahead early in the third quarter before throwing his second touchdown of the day – a 39-yard strike to wide receiver Rashee Rice – later in the contest.
This marks the 10th time that Mahomes has won AFC "Offensive Player of the Week" honors during his career, doing so at least once in each of the last six seasons.
Mahomes and the Chiefs will now aim to stay in the win column this weekend as the Chiefs travel to Green Bay for a Sunday Night Football matchup against the Packers.
