No one could have expected him to throw for 50 touchdowns and over 5,000 yards in his first season starting.

"Awards are awesome", Mahomes said. The only unanimous member of the 2018 All-Pro team, Donald easily outdistanced Chicago edge rusher Khalil Mack, also an All-Pro who received five votes in balloting announced night at NFL Honors.

The 23-year-old is the youngest player to win the award in the Super Bowl era.

Mahomes carried the Chiefs to a 12-4 record and the top seed in the AFC this season. Anthony Lynn of the Los Angeles Chargers came in a distant second with just 10.


Barkley edged out Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, 26.5 votes to 21.5.

Earlier in the day, Mahomes also claimed the titles of Offensive Player of the Year and FedEx Air & Ground NFL Player of the Year.

"It's very nice to be recognized as Comeback Player of the Year", Luck said.

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long was named the 2018 Walter Payton Man of the Year, which honors community service.
