The Kansas City Chiefs got the scare of their lives when their Star QB Patrick Mahomes suffered an ankle injury against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Backup QB Chad Henne stepped up in his place and deputized ably. The Chiefs QB1 returned later, but Henne’s cameo was enough to get him some fans. And that included Mahomes’ wife Brittany.
Brittany Mahomes couldn’t get enough of Henne after seeing her husband suffer an injury. And her tweet indicated that she is now a fan of the Chiefs QB2.
After her husband Patrick Mahomes went into the locker room, Brittany Mahomes fixed her eyes on the backup Chiefs QB Chad Henne. And she apparently liked what was on display. Brittany showed her support for Henne through a short and sweet tweet.
“HENNE THING IS POSSIBLE,” she tweeted, playing with the phrase ‘anything is possible’ and Henne’s name.
The NFL veteran showed that anything is possible, playing his first game of this season. The 37-year-old led his team on a 98-yard touchdown drive in the first half to ably fill the void left by Mahomes’ injury. That enabled the Chiefs QB1 to wait till halftime and come back to pick up from where Henne left.
The University of Michigan alumnus threw five completions in seven pass attempts. He threw 23 passing yards and scored an all-important touchdown. And all this was without turning the ball over in his first game of the season. Brittany is right, ‘Hennething’ is possible.
The NFL world was in awe of Chad Henne and didn’t miss Patrick Mahomes much. The fans showed their admiration for the Chiefs QB2, who held up under immense playoff pressure.
Mahomes came back in the second half to take the Chiefs over the line. He threw 195 passing yards and two touchdown passes. And in the end, the Chiefs proved to be too much for the Jaguars. The hosts won 27-20 to advance to the AFC championship game.
