From 2016-20, Tom Brady made four Super Bowl appearances in five seasons. Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes matched that feat this season by leading the Chiefs to their fourth Super Bowl appearance in five seasons. Brady went 3-1 in those games, but it was with two different teams in New England and Tampa Bay. 

Mahomes matched Brady's run on Sunday. 

Mahomes, 28, added to his Super Bowl accomplishments when Kansas City defeated San Francisco 25-22 in Super Bowl 58 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday. 

While it might be a little early for a Brady vs. Mahomes all-time argument – Brady has seven Super Bowl championships, after all – Mahomes is working into some high-level conversations based on his Super Bowl appearances.

How many Super Bowls has Patrick Mahomes won?  

Mahomes is 15-3 in the playoffs, including a 3-1 mark in the Super Bowl. Last season, he became the 13th quarterback to win multiple Super Bowls as a starter. 

Mahomes led the Chiefs to a 31-20 victory against San Francisco in Super Bowl 54. Tampa Bay, led by Brady, beat Kansas City 31-9 in Super Bowl 55. 

He also led the Chiefs to a 38-35 victory against Philadelphia in Super Bowl 57 last season. Now, he's back, and Kansas City has a chance to become the first repeat Super Bowl winner since the New England Patriots – again, with Brady – won Super Bowl 38 and Super Bowl 39 in consecutive seasons. 

This year, Mahomes was at it again. He and the Chiefs defeated the 49ers in overtime in Super Bowl 58 to go back-to-back for the first time since the Patriots in 2003-04. 

How has Patrick Mahomes performed in the Super Bowl?

Here's a look at how Mahomes fared in each of his Super Bowl appearances:  

Super Bowl 54: Chiefs 31, 49ers 20

The Chiefs trailed 20-10 in the fourth quarter, but a 3rd-and-15 pass from Mahomes to Tyreek Hill ignited a comeback that included TDs by Travis Kelce and Damien Williams. Mahomes finished 26-of-42 for 286 yards, two TDs, and two interceptions, leading Kansas City to its first Super Bowl victory in 50 seasons. Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP.

Super Bowl 55: Buccaneers 31, Chiefs 9 

Brady and the Buccaneers spoiled the Chiefs’ bid for back-to-back Super Bowl championships in a game impacted by COVID-19. Tampa Bay built a 21-6 lead by halftime. Mahomes was sacked three times and threw two interceptions, and this game was never close in the fourth quarter. Mahomes finished 26-of-49 for 270 yards. Brady was 21-of-29 for 203 yards and three TDs. 

Super Bowl 57: Chiefs 38, Eagles 35

Philadelphia led 24-14 at halftime, but Mahomes engineered a second-half comeback. He was efficient by hitting 21-of-27 attempts for 182 yards and three TDs, including fourth-quarter TD passes to Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore. Mahomes led a drive that set up the game-winning field goal by Harrison Butker with eight seconds remaining, which helped him earn his second Super Bowl MVP. 

Super Bowl 58: Chiefs 25, 49ers 22 (OT)

The Chiefs trailed the 49ers 10-3 at halftime in a defensive struggle. Mahomes, however, led the game-tying field goal drive, which Harrison Butker capped with three seconds remaining. The 49ers kicked a field goal on the opening possession of OT, and Mahomes led the game-winning drive, with a 3-yard TD pass to Mecole Hardman for the win. Mahomes finished 33-of-46 pass for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception and 66 rushing yards and earned Super Bowl MVP honors for the third time.

On Sunday, Mahomes became the eighth quarterback to make his fourth start in the Super Bowl.

Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana, Roger Staubach, Jim Kelly, and Peyton Manning all made four Super Bowl appearances. Here is a look at those quarterbacks’ records in the Super Bowl:

Patrick Mahomes and QBs with three Super Bowl victories 

Mahomes joined another exclusive group in Super Bowl 58. 

Five quarterbacks have at least three Super Bowl victories as a starter. That list includes Brady, Montana, Bradshaw, and Dallas’ Troy Aikman. 

A look at when those quarterbacks won their second and third Super Bowls shows the impressive career trajectory of Mahomes, who is on a similar trajectory to Brady. With the victory, Mahomes earned his third Super Bowl faster than Aikman, Bradshaw, and Montana.

Tom Brady NE, TB 7 26 27
Troy Aikman DAL 3 27 29
Patrick Mahomes KC 2 27 28
Terry Bradshaw PIT 4 27 30

How many times has Patrick Mahomes won Super Bowl MVP? 

Mahomes won Super Bowl MVP honors in Super Bowl 54, Super Bowl 57 and again at Super Bowl 58, joining another elite group. 

Brady and Montana are the only quarterbacks to win Super Bowl MVP honors three or more times. Montana was a three-time winner in Super Bowl 16, Super Bowl 19, and Super Bowl 24. Brady won the award five times in Super Bowl 36, Super Bowl 38, Super Bowl 39, Super Bowl 51, and Super Bowl 55. 

Bradshaw, Bart Starr, and Eli Manning are two-time Super Bowl MVP winners. 

How many two-time NFL MVPs have two or more Super Bowl victories? 

Mahomes won the NFL MVP award in 2018 and 2022. He is one of four quarterbacks with multiple NFL MVP awards and multiple Super Bowl championships. 

That group includes Tom Brady (7 Super Bowl wins, 3 MVPs), Peyton Manning (2 Super Bowl wins, 5 MVPs), and Joe Montana (4 Super Bowl wins, 2 MVPs).
