Pat Mahomes put the entire league on notice. Everyone should have already been paying attention after his first few performances of the season. In his first year as a starter, he casually threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns, earning himself the title of the league's MVP. That isn't the end goal for Mahomes, as the Chiefs' quarterback made it clear that this is just the beginning during his acceptance speech.

​​Anyone who ever has to play passing defense against this man just cringed. 

Most players would be happy with this being the end of their tale, but not Mahomes. At just 23 years old, the franchise-changing QB is ready to put the entire team on his back. He was just a few plays away from making it to the Super Bowl and has put the Chiefs in a position where they can count on Super Bowl appearances for years to come.

The Chiefs ​may not have been ready to the Patriots, but the league isn't ready for what Mahomes has in store next year and beyond.

With a beginning like this, this is going to be one special story.
