Many NFL fans love to compare players.

Determining which of the few quarterbacks is better has become an everyday thing among talk shows.

One of the top comparisons lately has been trying to compare players to Patrick Mahomes.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has been exceptional since his second year in the league.

Not many quarterbacks can compare to the success Mahomes has had.

But some are trying to lump Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow into the same category.

Former NFL player LeSean McCoy thinks it’s “Mahomes and everyone else.”

McCoy noted how impressive it was for Mahomes to win his second Super Bowl without Tyreek Hill.

This shows that he doesn’t need specific weapons around him to be successful.

Burrow’s career record against Mahomes is 3–1.

The only time Mahomes beat Burrow was in the AFC Championship Game last season.

But if you put their careers side by side, Mahomes has been far more successful.

He has won two MVPs and two Super Bowls.

Burrow is still looking for the first of the two.

Furthermore, Mahomes has already made three All-Pro teams, compared to Burrows’s zero.

Even though the quarterbacks are not comparable, these two teams are bitter rivals.

Both are expected to be Super Bowl contenders for many years to come.

AFC is as strong as ever.

The conference is full of elite quarterbacks not named Mahomes and Burrow.

Getting to the Super Bowl will be no easy task.

Ultimately, Buro is a great player and has been very successful but Mahomes is in a category of his own.
