Patrick Mahomes would love nothing more than to be preparing for a Super Bowl against the Los Angeles Rams, but his team couldn’t hold a 21-3 lead against the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game.
This past weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs QB participated in the Pro Bowl where things got off to a rough start when he threw a pick-six, during which Buccaneers DB Antoine Winfield Jr. juked Mahomes with a fake pitch.
After the game, it was clearly time to party and one photo proved that. The below picture with his fiancee Brittany Matthews shows that Mahomes was looking quite faded.
Here’s how social media reacted:
Mahomes is still trying to get over the fact that his team squandered away a prime opportunity to get to the Super Bowl. Asked specifically how long it took the quarterback to get over the loss to the Bengals, and he stated he hasn’t got over the loss yet and won’t until he achieves a very specific goal.
“I’m still not over it,” Mahomes said. “I don’t think I’ll be over it until we’re in another Super Bowl. I’ll have to use that as motivation moving forward.”
