Patrick Mahomes received a cool surprise before leading the Chiefs to a thrilling win over the Chargers on Thursday.
Ahead of Kansas City’s primetime matchup with Los Angeles, Mahomes got an on-field visit from his 18-month-old daughter, Sterling. It was a surprise for Mahomes, which his wife, Brittany, shared on Instagram.
During his weekly appearance on 610 Sports’ “The Drive”, Mahomes explained why that was so special.
“She’s been to the stadium before. Obviously very young, sat in the back and didn’t really know what was going on. (Thursday) was the first time she actually got to be on the field,” Mahomes said. “It was past her bedtime, so that’s why I didn’t expect her to be at the game. It was cool to see her on the field and see her before the game.”
What ensued on the field was a thriller, but Sterling was long asleep by the time the game really heated up.
“She got to see some of it, but she had to leave pretty quickly because she got real tired real fast,” Mahomes said. “It got to be about 8:00, 8:30, that’s way past her bedtime.”
