There's no doubt about it — Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. The two-time MVP just won his third Super Bowl, and he's about to gun for another with the Kansas City Chiefs come September. And on the topic of Super Bowls, Mahomes seems to be extra proud of his achievements lately. Posting a picture of himself flexing his three Super Bowl rings while donning a fancy suit, the 28-year-old added a caption that spoke for itself.

“BIG ME,” Mahomes wrote.

If there's anyone that's earned the right to show off his rings, it's Mahomes. After all, the quarterback led the Chiefs in all those Super Bowl campaigns.

Ring number one

The first was during the 2019-20 season, Mahomes' third year in the league. At this point, Mahomes was already Kansas City's franchise player, having won the MVP award a season prior. The Chiefs finished their 2019 regular season with a 12-4 record to sit atop the AFC West.

After victories over the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional and Conference Championship rounds (respectively), Mahomes and Co. faced the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. They found themselves in a dangerous deficit — down 10 entering the fourth quarter. However, an ensuing 21-0 run would propel the Chiefs to their first Super Bowl title in five decades.

Ring number two

Mahomes' second ring was garnered two seasons ago, during his second MVP crusade. He had an incredible run in 2022, throwing for 41 touchdowns and 5,250 yards during the team's 17-game stretch. In the rushing department, Mahomes added 358 yards and 4 scores. When the playoffs arrived, the Chiefs were able to overcome the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cincinnati Bengals to appear on the big stage. This time, it was the Philadelphia Eagles that awaited them.

Kansas City found themselves in a similar situation — down double digits against their opponents in the Super Bowl. They trailed at halftime by 10 with Mahomes playing on an injured foot. The deficit was cut to six entering the fourth, and Mahomes threw two crucial passes early in the final period to bring the lead to the Chiefs' side. A Jalen Hurts touchdown tied the game, but Harrison Butker's field goal in the final seconds sealed the deal for Kansas City.

Ring number three

And of course, this past season belonged to Patrick Mahomes and Co. as well. The Chiefs entered the postseason as the third seed following a bumpier-than-usual regular season. They lost a total of six games, four of which occurred after the team's bye week (Week 10).

Nevertheless, Kansas City reminded the country why they were the defending champions. After cruising past the Miami Dolphins during the Wild Cards, the team overcame heavyweights such as the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens to appear in yet another Super Bowl. There they faced the 49ers once more. Hungry for revenge, San Francisco entered the rematch with new faces such as Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey.

But no matter how revamped the 49ers were, Patrick Mahomes was…well, Patrick Mahomes. It seems like the quarterback has a knack for trailing on the big stage, looking at how the Chiefs were down 10-3 at the half. Long story short, Mahomes and his team managed to send the game into overtime. During those extra minutes, each team was granted a possession. Kansas City's defense forced the 49ers to settle for a field goal. Once it was their turn to push the ball, the Chiefs managed to bring it all the way down to San Francisco's 3-yard line. And then — down three with the ball in his hands — Mahomes threw the game-winning pass to Mecole Hardman Jr.

No lead is safe with Patrick Mahomes; his three rings exemplify that. He's currently in his prime, and by the looks of it, nothing can stop him from continuing his elite play this coming season.
