Patrick Mahomes

By The Numbers

Chiefs fans long ago crowned Patrick Mahomes King of Kansas City, but his appeal reaches far beyond Arrowhead. Mahomes has 1.8 million Instagram followers and over 650,000 Twitter followers and more fans bought his jersey than any other player in the league not named Tom Brady. Football players, unlike basketball stars, aren't as easily identifiable to the average fan, but Mahomes has transcended that. Chiefs fans have longed for a quarterback like Mahomes for decades, but football fans everywhere have rallied around him and claimed him as their own.
