Stepfather of Patrick Mahomes' girlfriend collapses, dies at Chiefs game

Patrick Mahomes was not available for his postgame media session after defeating the Cardinals due to a family emergency, the nature of which was recently revealed.

The stepfather of Brittany Matthews, the girlfriend of the Chiefs quarterback, died Sunday after he suffered a medical emergency and passed out at the game at Arrowhead Stadium.

“Today is a day I will never forget!” Meadows wrote. “Directly after this picture I sprinted to the front entrance to see my stepdad passed out! He did not come back from this and he was called to heaven today! I KNOW 100% he is so happy up there with his kids looking down on us cheering loud that his Chiefs won today! Thank you everyone for the prayers and sweet text! We will miss you Paul So So So Much! I will take care of mom for you!”

It’s unclear when Mahomes was notified of the incident or if he had knowledge of it while playing. He threw for 249 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions as he lead Kansas City to a 26-14 win.
