ATLANTA — The MVP chants followed Patrick Mahomes for the better part of the last two months.

On the field at Arrowhead Stadium, in the tunneled pathway from the field to the locker room on game days and in the cavernous hall that held Friday’s NFL Experience in Atlanta.

On Saturday, the chorus of voices spoke their three-letter refrain into existence when Mahomes was named the league’s Most Valuable Player at the league’s annual NFL Honors ceremony.
