Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has enjoyed great success over the course of his six NFL seasons. The quarterback has won two Super Bowls and is a two-time league MVP.
Mahomes, probably many athletes, can attribute some of his success to deep-seated superstition.
Veteran signal caller Chad Henne, who announced his retirement after Super Bowl LVII, shed some light on a certain pair of underwear that holds unique significance for Mahomes.

During a recent appearance on «The Adam Schefter Podcast,» Henne said Mahomes’ superstitions stemmed from his days as a baseball player. One of the most notable and peculiar parts of Mahomes’ routine is wearing the same underwear to every game.

«He has to have a certain thing every day when he comes in,» Henne said. «He does his job. His notes are written a certain way. The same pair of underwear on game day, which probably not many people know about. He’s been wearing it since I was (on the team)… Sunday, it’s the same pair.»
Henne was with the Chiefs from 2018 until last season. Mahomes was selected in the first round of the 2017 draft.
During their five years together, Henne served as Mahomes’ backup and the pair were likely able to get to know each other well.
Henne did not elaborate on how often Mahomes washes the underwear. And he might be in the best interest of the general public not to know about it.
Whether the bizarre habit has any impact on actual football, Mahomes has continued to make strides in the biggest moments.
Mahomes helped lead the Chiefs to a 38-35 comeback victory over the Eagles last Sunday. He threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns on the night.
