All you need to know!

Patrick Mahomes


The starting gun is set to be fired on the race to the Super Bowl as the NFL regular season prepares to get out of the blocks.

The Kansas City Chiefs are in possession of the Vince Lombardi Trophy after beating the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII last season. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the MVP after throwing three touchdowns in the Chiefs’ 38-35 victory over the Eagles.

It will be the first year since 2000 that Tom Brady is not involved in the NFL after the legendary quarterback called time on his career (for good, this time) at the end of last season.
