KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The postseason accolades are rolling in for the 13-1 Kansas City Chiefs.

Monday, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was announced as the NFL’s leading vote-getter for the 2021 all-star game, receiving 342,353 total fan votes.

Mahomes will make the AFC’s team for the third straight season, though the game will not be played this season due to the pandemic.

His partner in crime, tight end Travis Kelce, was named a 2020 pro-bowler, too. Big Zeus racked up 309,710 votes on the way to his fourth (and second consecutive) Pro Bowl selection.

In total seven Chiefs made the initial roster.

The NFL’s touchdown receptions leader Tyreek Hill earned a Pro Bowl nod. His 17 total touchdowns lead all non-quarterbacks.

"Sack nation" will be well represented, too, as Chris Jones made the list, joined by defensive end Frank Clark and safety Tyrann Matheiu.

On the offensive line side, Eric Fisher also made the cut.
