NBC’s cameras were not shy in showing Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the sideline during the team’s 31-24 loss on Sunday Night Football — and that is understandable.
Mahomes, though officially ruled out for the game on Friday, is still the reigning MVP of the National Football League.

When Mahomes wasn’t celebrating one of the Chiefs’ three touchdowns, making LeSean McCoy feel better for his bad fumble or becoming a meme (as seen above), he was doing whatever he could to help Matt Moore, who was starting for the Chiefs in his place.
“Pat popped up from time to time on the sideline and had great stuff,” said Moore after the game. “We were looking at pictures and he had great stuff. We worked through everything there. He told me everything that came to his mind. I told him, ‘Don’t hold anything back, you be you,’ and he came to me with some stuff and was excellent all night.”
Moore finished the night 24 of 36 for 267 yards and two touchdowns.
“I think one of his best traits is his vision,” added Moore, regarding Mahomes. “He sees a lot of things other guys don’t and so anything that I can get from someone like that I’m going to take it and try to use it the best I can.”
