That makes three times that Mahomes has won the award.

The NFL named Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes its AFC offensive player of the week for Week 2.

Mahomes put together a 278-yard, 12-completion, four-touchdown second quarter as part of a 443-yard effort in the Chiefs’ 28-10 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Somewhat surprisingly, it is only Mahomes’ third AFC offensive player of the week award. Mahomes won the weekly award for Weeks 1 and 2 in 2018.

Heading into Week 3, Mahomes leads all passers with 821 yards and is in a three-way tie with seven passing touchdowns (CowboysDak Prescott and RavensLamar Jackson).
