Patrick Mahomes is on his way to cementing himself as one of the greatest in the league. The Chiefs QB has done wonders for the team and has been breaking barriers since his arrival. The 27-year-old QB has been the standout player in the league and is a strong contender for the MVP award.
The Chiefs will face the Eagles in the Super Bowl finals. Both the teams are stacked in quality and have impressive squads. However, there’s another similarity between the teams as their starting QBs are both African-Americans.
This is a breakthrough in the world of the NFL as Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts have recorded history by being the first two Black QBs in the Super Bowl final.
On the other hand, Mahomes is also on the way to becoming the first Black QB to win multiple Super Bowl titles. This is a moment of history for the 27-year-old who feels that it is special.
“I’ve learned more and more about the history of the Black quarterback since I’ve been in this league,” Mahomes stated to the reporters. “The guys that came before me and Jalen set the stage for this, and now I’m just glad we can set the stage for kids that are coming up now. It’ll be a great game against two great teams and against another great quarterback. I’m excited to go out there and do what we can against a great team.”
The Chiefs QB wants to inspire future generations like QB Doug Williams, who became the first Black QB ever to win the Super Bowl. With the Super Bowl finals just around the corner, it will be historic and will break lots of barriers while being entertaining and thrilling.

Jalen Hurts also shared sentiments with Patrick Mahomes for being part of such a special historic event
Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts are neck-to-neck in the MVP race. However, this time the QBs weren’t competing as they were a part of something way bigger than them.
Hurts obliged with Mahomes statements and also believes that this is the moment in history that makes it even more special. The Eagles QB is on his way to becoming the 8th Black QB to start a Super Bowl game.
“I think it’s history,” Jalen Hurts said to the reporters. “I think it’s something that’s worthy of being noted and it is history. It’s come a long way. I think it’s only been seven African-American quarterbacks to play in the Super Bowl, so to be the first for something is pretty cool. I know it will be a good one.”
The biggest sporting event in the country has the potential to become a historic one where the winner will go down in the history books forever. Arizona will be lit up on the 12th of February as millions of people watch with a keen eye.
