    (CNN)Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been named the AP NFL Most Valuable Player for a second time in his career.

    Mahomes, who previously won the award in the 2018-19 season, earned the honor Thursday night following a 2022 regular season in which he led the NFL in passing touchdowns (41) and offensive touchdowns (45) to go along with a career-high 5,250 yards in the league's premier scoring offense.
    "First I would like to thank God for giving me this platform and putting so many amazing people around me, to help support this journey I've had since I was a little kid. Without them none of this would be possible," Mahomes said in a video aired at the NFL Honors award ceremony on Thursday night.
      Mahomes also thanked the Chiefs front office personnel as well as his teammates. "I would never be standing here today without y'all. Every day, giving everything that we have together to go for the ultimate goal, the Super Bowl. Let's continue to go for that dream this weekend."
        The 27-year-old signal caller, who will be playing for a second career Super Bowl title on Sunday, is the 10th player in NFL history to win the award multiple times. After helping the Chiefs secure the top seed in the AFC, Mahomes guided Kansas City to a trip to the Super Bowl for the third time in the past four seasons.
