With Tom Brady and the New England Patriots pummeling the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC Divisional Round, it’s looking increasingly certain that the Patriots will be heading to Arrowhead Stadium next weekend to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
As for Mahomes, who is preparing for just his second-ever playoff game, he is facing a tough task against a legend with a 21-10 playoff record.
Mahomes’ mother, Randi, was recently interviewed and revealed that she expressed some concern to her son about taking on the future Hall of Fame quarterback.
“I’ve gotta give it to Tom Brady. We’re the same age. I can’t imagine playing someone 20 years younger than me. Whatever he’s doing, you need to do,” she told her son.

Mahomes and the Chiefs have plenty to be worried about.
The Chargers had a top-10 defense going into the game against the Patriots but got absolutely blown away in the first half, to the tune of a 35-7 beatdown.
The Chiefs, meanwhile, are playing in only their second AFC Championship game since they won the AFL Championship in the 1969 season.
