The Chiefs are one win away from a playoff berth and a division title
Just before Christmas, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes spent some time with children and families in need to spread some holiday cheer.
Mahomes and his wife Brittany visited EarlystART – a childhood education center – to help kids from some of ‘the most economically distressed zip codes in the Kansas City area’ via a clothing and supply donation.
In a post to his ’15 and the Mahomies Foundation’ Instagram page, kids were able to take pictures with Patrick and Brittany and they were able to pick out clothes for the winter.
Continuing with the spirit of giving, Brittany visited Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City and brought along gifts for patients and their families.
Some of those donations were from Build-A-Bear Workshop – which contained a pre-recorded message of encouragement from Patrick inside.

Mahomes is hoping to bring more joy to Kansas City on Christmas Day when the Chiefs take on the Las Vegas Raiders at home.
A victory would give the Chiefs not only a playoff berth, but an eighth-straight AFC West title.
This season has not been the easiest for Kansas City – which currently owns a 9-5 record with four of those losses decided by one score.
‘I think people just aren’t used to us winning in this fashion,’ Mahomes admitted.
‘We’ve won a lot of close games, but we haven’t won those close games this year – but we’re right there. We know that.
‘We watch the film, we see the good that’s out there – we also see the bad and where we need to get better. But you can’t panic, I think that’s the thing.’
The Chiefs easily handled the Raiders 31-17 just a few weeks ago, but their strong defense could take advantage of KC’s struggling offense.
KC’s wide receivers have been letting them down all season long – with Kadarius Toney the most recent example.

‘I think it’s two things,’ Mahomes told Pro Football Talk. ‘I’m excited because you get that standalone [game]. You get to play at Arrowhead [Stadium] at 12:00.
‘I mean, everybody’s gonna be just opening presents and getting the food in them and then they’re going to be the happiest they possibly can be, and they’re gonna turn on and see the Kansas City Chiefs playing. So I’m excited about that.
‘I’m a little disappointed I’m going to miss Christmas Eve with my kids and Christmas morning and miss Santa coming. But I’ll be able to spend the evening with them and open presents with them then. So, it’ll be a great opportunity. I’m excited for that. We’ll miss the kids a little bit but we’ll celebrate after the game’s over.’
