Patrick Mahomes has enjoyed a start to his career that hasn’t been seen by the likes of Tom Brady. With the Kansas City Chiefs defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, the franchise ushered in the NFL’s latest dynasty and Mahomes took over the mantle that Brady held for nearly two decades with the New England Patriots.

While Brady’s pursuit of Mahomes as possibly the greatest quarterback in NFL history has and will pay off, let’s not dwell on some of the legends Mahomes is currently going toe-to-toe against and may have already surpassed.

Heading into Super Bowl LVIII, Mahomes had two titles on his resume, putting him on a plateau that includes 13 other quarterbacks who have reached that milestone or more. With his third now added, Mahomes is breaking out of the group of two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks, led by Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, John Elway and Roger Staubach, to join the more exclusive club of three-plus winners. Only four other quarterbacks in league history have at least three Super Bowl titles, and Mahomes will join Brady, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and Troy Aikman.
