Patrick Mahomes’ girlfriend Brittany Matthews says she was harassed by Patriots fans

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes’ girlfriend Brittany Matthews had a rough time dealing with New England Patriots fans during Sunday’s game.

Matthews, who attended the Kansas City Chiefs’ 23-16 win over the Patriots at Gillette Stadium, voiced complaints on Twitter about the treatment she and Mahomes’ younger brother received from Patriots fans.

“As soon as we sit down, drunk dude “hey everyone this is patrick mahomes girl and brother, let’s give them s–”
This shall be fun,” Matthews wrote on Sunday (edited for profanity).

Matthews’ complaints continued. She said “this place is horrible” and that people were yelling any time she stood up.

Matthews says security eventually came and moved them to a safer place.

Even on Monday, she was still getting into it with Patriots fans.

Boston sports fans have a reputation for being intense and extremely passionate about their teams. We saw similar complaints from a player’s girlfriend about Boston sports fans several years ago too.

Sometimes some may go overboard, though we have heard some positive feedback from other players.

Patrick Mahomes gets good news after tests on hand injury

Patrick Mahomes

Patrick Mahomes has already dealt with several injuries this season, but fortunately it does not sound like the latest is anything serious for the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback.

Mahomes suffered a hand injury that appeared to cause him some discomfort during Sunday’s win over the New England Patriots, but Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters on Monday that X-rays came back negative. Mahomes is dealing with a bruise but is expected to be fine.

Mahomes appeared to jam his hand early in the game when he was hit by a Patriots defender, and he was shown flexing it uncomfortably at various points after that. Some of his throws fluttered a bit and may have lacked velocity, but it did not seem like the injury made that big of an impact.

Between the hand injury, a few minor ankle tweaks, and the nasty dislocated knee he suffered, Mahomes has had to play through a lot of pain this season. The important thing is he won’t have to miss any time with the latest ailment.

Patrick Mahomes took a few hits early in the Kansas City Chiefs’ game against the New England Patriots on Sunday, and one of them may have left him with an injured throwing hand.

Mahomes was seen holding his right hand and flexing his fingers after several throws in the first quarter. His passes didn’t appear to be all that impacted, but it looked like he may have suffered some sort of injury when he landed awkwardly. He was seen examining his hand several times before being checked out by the training staff on the sideline.

Mahomes stayed in the game, but he appeared to be in some pain. It’s possible the injury could impact some of his throws.

Between hurting his ankle a few times and the nasty dislocated knee he suffered earlier in the year, Mahomes has not been fully healthy for much of the season. That could be part of the reason he hasn’t played at quite as high of a level as he did during his MVP season last year.

Watch: Patrick Mahomes finds new way to throw TD with jump pass

Patrick Mahomes missed the last two games while recovering from a knee injury, and apparently the reigning NFL MVP was able to use his time off to come up with a new way to throw touchdown passes.

Mahomes, who set the NFL on fire last year by completing a no-look pass, channeled his inner Tim Tebow during Sunday’s game against the Tennessee Titans. He looked like he was about to be sacked but somehow escaped the pressure and completed a jump pass to Mecole Hardman. Hardman turned on the jets and took the ball 63 yards for a touchdown.

Mahomes hinted last year that he has some more tricks up his sleeve that he might bust out during games, so that may have been one of them. NFL fans are fortunate his dislocated knee turned out to be nothing too serious. The league needs Mahomes, and he reminded us why in his first game back.

Patrick Mahomes officially named starter against Titans

Patrick Mahomes has been practicing this week and trending toward returning to action after just a two-game absence, and Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid made it official on Friday.

Reid told reporters that Mahomes will start against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday “unless something changes.”

Mahomes dislocated his knee in a Thursday night win over the Denver Broncos in Week 7. He then missed Kansas City’s Week 8 and Week 9 games, both of which Matt More started. The Chiefs defeated the Minnesota Vikings and lost to the Green Bay Packers.

Given how serious Mahomes’ knee injury looked when it happened, the fact that he is going to end up missing just two games is remarkable. The Chiefs have a bye in Week 12, so some initially thought it would make sense to hold Mahomes out through then. It’s a great sign that he is returning already.

Patrick Mahomes trending towards Week 10 return after full practice

Patrick Mahomes appears to be trending towards a Week 10 start for the Kansas City Chiefs.

Mahomes had a full practice on Wednesday, according to the team’s published injury report. This marked the first time since suffering a knee injury in a Thursday night win over the Broncos in Week 7 that Mahomes has had a full practice.

Mahomes missed the Chiefs’ Week 8 and 9 games, both of which Matt Moore started. The team went 1-1 in those games, losing to the Packers and beating the Vikings.

The reigning league MVP is not putting up the same insane stats from last season, but he has passed for 2,180 yards, 15 touchdowns and 5 interceptions this season. Kansas City is 6-3 and leading the AFC West. They will visit the Titans on Sunday.

Why Patrick Mahomes could return from knee injury sooner than expected

Patrick Mahomes remarkably returned to practice this week only six days after suffering a dislocated knee cap, and apparently that can be attributed to his rather unique physical makeup.

Mahomes will not play on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers, but he has not been ruled out for next week’s matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the reigning NFL MVP has bounced back so quickly because of the way his knee is built. Mahomes’ ligaments are naturally loose, which is part of the reason only one of them sustained damage, and that damage was not significant.

In simpler terms, Rapoport said he was told Mahomes’ knee has “built-in protection.”

Mahomes was limited in practice during the week, and the Kansas City Chiefs are obviously going to play it safe with him. However, it is certainly a good sign that he has a chance to suit up in Week 9 given how ugly the injury looked initially. Reports indicated that Mahomes could miss around three weeks, but that is now looking like the maximum amount of time he would be out.
