Patrick Mahomes and Brittany Matthews are preparing for their highly anticipated wedding in 2022, and the couple has already celebrated extravagant bachelor and bachelorette parties with their closest friends.
In recent posts on social media of Patrick Mahomes' bachelor party, his younger brother seemed to be missing from the photos shared online. At the same time, Jackson Mahomes, active on TikTok and social media himself, posted a vague message stating that he felt "broken/sad/disappointed."
Although it's unclear whether the younger Mahomes brother's post is related to his absence in Patrick Mahomes' bachelor party picture, the presumptive context is peculiar.
Jackson Mahomes was in the news last season for various off-field controversies, including dancing on the late Sean Taylor's memorial and publicly criticizing a local Kansas City business. While Patrick Mahomes has never called out his brother for these antics, many fans think there is some drama brewing between the two due to Jackson Mahomes' negative press.
The older Mahomes sibling has been kicking off a whirlwind of significant events and celebrations since the end of the Chiefs' campaign. From commemorating his daughter's first birthday to his bachelor party to the upcoming wedding, Mahomes is busy ahead of the NFL Combine, NFL Draft, and the offseason training camp before the 2022 NFL season begins.
Patrick Mahomes' stats ahead of 2022 season
In the span of three NFL seasons, Patrick Mahomes has compiled a Hall-of-Fame worthy resume early in his career as the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. In 2018, he won the league MVP for his breakneck passing stats, including 50 touchdown passes against only 12 interceptions while throwing for 5,097 yards with a passer rating of 113.8.
In 2019, Mahomes led his team to the Super Bowl, where they defeated the San Francisco 49ers, and he also won the Super Bowl MVP award. In 2020, Mahomes and the Chiefs made their second straight Super Bowl but lost to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The 2021 season was a "down" season by Mahomes' high standards. He still threw for 4,839 yards with 37 touchdowns against 13 interceptions. However, for a team like the Chiefs, stats do not matter if the result is not a Super Bowl title.
Ultimately, the 2021 season fell short of the Chiefs' lofty expectations when the team lost in overtime to the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game. Despite narrowly missing out on a third straight Super Bowl appearance, many critics and fans felt that Mahomes did not play up to his usual standards due to off-field distractions, including his brother Jackson Mahomes and fiancée Brittany Matthews' antics.
