Mahomes achieved his goal and led the Chiefs to a Super Bowl, while Cousins and the Vikings had a terrific season with a few thrilling comeback wins before flaming out in the playoffs.

Netflix could give us an up-close look at the incredible comebacks led by Cousins and Justin Jefferson against the Bills and Colts, while fans might get some more clarity about the way Mariota's time in Atlanta ended. Falcons coach Arthur Smith appeared to call out Mariota for leaving the team in December. Mariota blamed a knee injury, but Smith said said the knee was "nothing that has been an issue this season" and called the decision "[Mariota's] prerogative."
