Around the NFL writers voted Patrick Mahomes as their midseason prediction for both MVP and Offensive Player of the Year. The Chiefs received one vote for Super Bowl champions.
The club also received six votes for winning the AFC. The Patriots received eight votes, perhaps surprisingly followed by the Los Angeles Chargers with six votes.
