In a ManningCast appearance, Mahomes spilled the beans on his game-day essentials. Confirming the speculations, he said, “First, my wife Brittany got them for me, so I’m not throwing you all down, but I have to wear them. At the same time, I threw them on that first season. We had a pretty good season that season. I only wear them for game day though, so they’re not too worn down… As long as we’re winning. I’ll keep the superstition going.” He declared.

Mahomes: Not just a quarterback, but a gridiron soothsayer

Patrick Mahomes is the undefeated champ of consistency, boasting a career record of 82-21. That’s a whole lot of games with the same lucky undies, but Mahomes isn’t stopping there. Some of his other game-day rituals include entering the stadium at the exact same time, using the same shampoo, even doing the same warm-up routine. More so, the Chiefs’ golden boy is now moonlighting as a football oracle, dropping predictions like confetti at a Super Bowl victory parade. In a segment on the ManningCast, Mahomes accurately called Russell Wilson’s touchdown. Wilson pulled off the ol’ switcheroo, faking the handoff before serving up a touchdown feast to Cortland Sutton in the corner of the end zone.

Now, Mahomes may have the pundit gig on the horizon, but let’s give credit where it’s due–Wilson and Sutton put in the sweat equity to turn Mahomes’ crystal ball vision into reality. So, not only does Mahomes have the Ws on lock, but he’s also dropping knowledge bombs like a football Nostradamus. Post-NFL career? Check. Touchdown predictions? Double check. Mahomes is not just a QB; he’s the gridiron soothsayer we never knew we needed.
