Today is a day I will never forget! Directly after this picture I sprinted to the front entrance to see my step dad passed out! He did not come back from this and he was called to heaven today! I KNOW 100% he is so happy up there with his kids looking down on us cheering loud that his chiefs won today! Thank you everyone for the prayers and sweet text! We will miss you Paul So So So Much! I will take care of mom for you!❤️🙏🏼
Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told reporters after the game that Mahomes would not be participating in his routine postgame media session due to a family emergency.
Mahomes threw for 249 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions on the day while leading the Chiefs to a 26-14 win over the Cardinals.
Our condolences to Matthews and her family.
