If he wants to make more NFL history, Patrick Mahomes will have to go through a quarterback who is synonymous with Super Bowl excellence. Mahomes, who last year became the first player to earn Super Bowl MVP before his 25th birthday, will try to join Tom Brady, Bart Starr, Joe Montana and Eli Manning as the only players to win multiple Super Bowl MVP awards. 

There is only one four-time Super Bowl MVP -- Brady stands alone -- but Montana was the first three-time winner while leading the 49ers to four championships in a nine-year span during the 1980s. Bradshaw won two Super Bowl MVP awards while quarterbacking the Steelers to four championships during a six-year span in the 1970s. 

In Super Bowls I and II, Starr was named MVP while leading the Packers to their fourth and fifth world championships during the 1960s. Manning joined the multiple-MVP club after he helped lead New York to two upsets over the Patriots

Here is the full list of all Super Bowl MVP winners:
