NFL superstar Patrick Mahomes, the quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs, found himself at the center of a humorous social media moment due to an unflattering camera angle. The incident occurred following the Kansas City Chiefs’ AFC Championship win, captured in a still from The CW’s Inside the NFL footage.
In the image, a shirtless Mahomes can be seen giving an impassioned pep talk to his Chiefs teammates in the locker room, celebrating their upcoming Super Bowl appearance. Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), the 28-year-old quarterback playfully responded to the viral image, exclaiming, “Yoooo why they have to do me like that!?!?!?” accompanied by three laughing emojis and the hashtag #DadBodSzn.
Quoting his own tweet, Mahomes humorously added, “Like I got kids!!!” and tagged the official accounts for the Chiefs, the NFL, and Inside the NFL.

Inside the NFL’s X account replied to Mahomes, expressing, “Elite in our book,” while ESPN draft analyst Matt Miller joined in on the fun, jesting, “You and Jason Kelce are doing more for dad bods than anyone in history,” in reference to the shirtless antics of the Philadelphia Eagles star during the Chiefs-Bills game. Miller amusingly added that Kelce, aged 36, and Mahomes were “Doing the lord’s work.”
Looking ahead, Mahomes and the Chiefs are gearing up to defend their NFL championship title in Super Bowl LVIII, set to take place on February 11th at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This upcoming Super Bowl appearance marks Mahomes’ fourth in the big game for Kansas City, and he appears to be eagerly anticipating the trip to Las Vegas.
After the Chiefs secured a 17-10 victory against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, Mahomes took to X to celebrate with a GIF featuring Zach Galifianakis’s character from the movie “The Hangover.”
