Patrick Mahomes is the most valuable quarterback in Kansas City Chiefs history at his current level of play.
But in terms of career value, Mahomes has a long way to go before he can catch up to Len Dawson.
The Hall of Famer died on Wednesday at the age of 87.
Dawson played in two Super Bowls. He played against the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I.
He was the Super Bowl IV Most Valuable Player when Kansas City beat the Minnesota Vikings 23–7.
Dawson was a seven-time Pro Bowler, a two-time First-Team All-Pro, the 1973 NFL Man of the Year, and a legend in broadcasting.
On Thursday night, the Chiefs paid tribute to Dawson by recreating the "choir huddle" formation that the team used to stand in when Dawson was a member.
Mahomes came out to run it, but the Chiefs were called for delaying the game, so Mahomes left the field and Chad Henne came in for him.
