NFL Honors 2019: Full list of every award winner — Patrick Mahomes wins MVP, Offensive Player of the Year Veach said Mahomes is a natural competitor, which is why he can’t take it easy on the field or court.”With Pat, everything he does is so competitive. … He actually was in the office yesterday and we were joking about it. He was just shooting around and all of a sudden it turns into a spin move and juking guys out. He doesn’t have that filter in his mind to just have fun and not take everything so competitively,” Veach said.Despite falling short in the AFC title game in January, Mahomes had a great season. He won the NFL’s 2018 Most Valuable Player and Offensive Player of the Year awards in his first season as a starter and is the second player in NFL history to throw 50 touchdown passes and for more than 5,000 yards in the same year.
