The Chiefs quarterback threw for 156 yards and a touchdown in the league’s showcase game.

NFL: Pro Bowl Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

There is no doubt the Kansas City Chiefs would have much rather been in Atlanta preparing for Super Bowl LIII, but instead, five Chiefs—Eric Fisher, Dee Ford, Tyreek Hill, Patrick Mahomes and Anthony Sherman—played in the Pro Bowl on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes was named the game’s offensive MVP, as he went 7 of 14 for 156 yards and an 18-yard touchdown to Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron.

He also attempted a no-look pass...

...that made viewers in Atlanta gasp.

Mahomes also cursed.

Mahomes spoke to ESPN after he was removed from the game early in the game’s second quarter.

“You dream about [playing],” Mahomes said. “Until you’re actually here and you’re just enjoying being a part of this, being a part of this process, the Pro Bowl, the season and being around a lot of great people, you really can’t measure that when you’re a little kid.”

For what it’s worth, Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman gave Mahomes a run for his money in the MVP race. Sherman had a touchdown to give the AFC a 14-0 lead with a goal-line run.

Sherman finished with three receptions for 92 yards, as well as four rushes for 11 yards that included the 1-yard touchdown.

Jets safety Jamal Adams was named the game’s defensive MVP.
