Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was unavailable for his postgame interview following Sunday’s 26-14 win over the Cardinals due to a family emergency.  

Mahomes’ girlfriend Brittany Matthews later revealed why he was unable to meet with the media after the game.  Her stepfather collapsed at the game and later died at the hospital.

Today is a day I will never forget! Directly after this picture I sprinted to the front entrance to see my step dad 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!❤️
