It has long been known that Jackson and Brittany Mahomes haven’t always been the most popular visitors to Kansas City’s Arrowhead Stadium, yet they were both present for the season opener on Thursday.Jackson Mahomes, brother of Patrick, continues to battle legal issues in the midst of allegations of abuse by a woman, and it was certainly a surprise to see him present at the game.
It has been thought that the franchise had asked Patrick Mahomes to try and limit the distractions that his wife and his brother could pose, yet they both were freely allowed at the stadium to watch the Detroit Lions take a shock 21-20 victory.History was made by the Chiefs in the 2022 season, as they won yet another Super Bowl, and that feat was immortalized with the championship banner ceremony which took place before kick-off against Detroit.
Brittany Mahomes uploaded a selfie from a suite at Arrowhead Stadium whilst the ceremony was taking place, as well as additional snapshots of the banner itself.The high school sweethearts first met back when they were teenagers, and the pair managed to make a long-distance relationship work while excelling in their collegiate athletic careers before becoming professional athletes. Mahomes is the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, while Matthews previously competed internationally as a pro soccer player in Iceland. After Matthews graduated high school, she went off to the University of Texas at Tyler where she played soccer.
A year later, Mahomes graduated high school and chose Texas Tech University. However, the distance couldn’t keep them apart, and they managed to make it work despite their stringent collegiate athletic schedules. Mahomes and the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV on Feb. 2, 2020, and the quarterback was crowned the MVP of the game. After the big win, Mahomes was photographed holding Matthews on the field as they celebrated together.
