Chiefs Legend Tony Gonzalez Picks Patrick Mahomes over Drew Brees for NFL MVP

Although both Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and New Orleans Saints signal-caller Drew Brees made strong MVP cases during the 2018 regular season, fourteen-time Pro Bowler Tony Gonzalez believes it's an easy call.

"I thought Drew Brees would've had a chance, but 50 touchdowns, 5,000 yards...I mean, it's no contest," the tight end told TMZ Sports.

The 23-year-old Mahomes ranked second in the NFL in passing yards (5,097) and first in touchdown passes (50), finishing 11 scores above the next-closest competitor. The first-year starter also led Kansas City (12-4) to the AFC West title and the top seed in the AFC.
