The NFL has named Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes the AFC Offensive Player of the Month for September.

Through four weeks of the season, Mahomes has already thrown for 1,510 yards and 10 touchdowns — but has yet to throw an interception. Combined with his completion percentage of 67.9, his passer rating is now 120.4 — tops in the NFL.

Mahomes was named the AFC offensive player of the week after Week 2, after he passed for 443 yards and four touchdowns in the 28-10 defeat of the Oakland Raiders.

This is the second time Mahomes has been the conference’s offensive player of the month. He was named the AFC’s offensive player of the week for the first two weeks of the 2018 season and also won the award for the month of September.

The AFC’s Defensive Player of the Month for September is New England Patriots defensive back Devin McCourty. On special teams, it’s Cleveland Browns punter Jamie Gillan.

For the NFC, the offensive player is Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey. On defense, it’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett. The special teams player is New Orleans Saints punter Thomas Morstead.

Among rookies, the NFL gave the AFC nod to Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew. Panthers edge rusher Brian Burns won the rookie award for the NFC in September.
