Over two months have passed since the New England Patriots eliminated the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game that would need overtime to be decided.
During ‘Tonight Show’ appearance, the young phenom gave the details of what the future hall of fame QB told him:
“It was awesome for him to do that and show that class at such an exciting moment,” Mahomes told host Jimmy Fallon Monday night during a “Tonight Show” appearance to announce the launch of his foundation.
Following the end of that game, it was chaotic on the field that Brady and Mahomes never got a chance to connect on the field.
So, Brady decided to visit Kansas City’s locker room later that night:
“He got the security to let him in, and he said, ‘Man, you had a heck of a season,’” Mahomes relayed to Fallon. “He knows what it’s like to win a lot of big games. He knows what it’s like to lose some big games — not many, but a few. So, he just said, ‘You have to keep grinding.’ He said he loved the way that I played.”
Mahomes put up humongous numbers in 2018, throwing for over 5,000 yards and leading the league in touchdown passes (50).
“He just came up to me and said, ‘Good game,’ and everything like that,” Mahomes said on ESPN’s “NFL Live” during Pro Bowl week in January. “I mean, he was in my place. He was young. He got to win the Super Bowl in his first year … so he understands that time, it flies by, [so you have to] make sure to put in the work. I think he saw that I’ve put in the work to be in those situations.”
With the type of talent Mahomes has at the QB position, he will have this Kansas City team in the thick of things every single year to have a chance to get into the Super Bowl.
