Patrick Mahomes mania is sweeping Chiefs Kingdom and the NFL as well after his explosive start to the season, and as a result there have been a handful of highly creative and funny memes to come along with it. Mahomes and the Chiefs are after Monday night's come-from-behind win over the Denver Broncos at Mile High, a game that saw him throw for yards and one touchdown while putting on numerous highlight plays for a prime time audience.
But the memes started pouring in long before that, as the excitement over Mahomes really started to hit a fever pitch after he threw six touchdowns in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. There's quite a few of them out there, but we've attempted to gather the best of them in this list. Chiefs fans will surely be entertained by what they see, while NFL fans in general should get a kick out of it as well.
Without further ado, here's a look at our list of the top 10 Patrick Mahomes memes of the season. Mahomes has been spreading the ball out among all the players on Kansas City's offense, although the ones pictured here have been getting the most love.
Patrick Mahomes looked like Uncle Rico on Monday night. Mahomes got off to a slow start in the game, but he came on strong when it counted the most. Trailing in the second half, Mahomes led the Chiefs on two touchdown drives, which included a third-down play where he tossed the ball left-handed to wide receiver Tyreek Hill to get a first down. The win moved Mahomes to over the Broncos, whom he also started against in his debut last season.
Here's another one to come from the win over Denver. Broncos players were largely kicking themselves after the game for allowing a first down when they had Mahomes and the Chiefs backed up to a 2nd-and on the game-winning drive, but they also were very complimentary about his performance.
The two teams will meet again at Arrowhead Stadium on October Big time mood pic. This one came out in Week 2, when the Chiefs were in the process of beating the Steelers It was a win that excited Chiefs fans considering the problems the team had with the Steelers in previous seasons, and with Mahomes throwing six touchdown passes in the game, it was the one that really got Mahomes mania off and running.
He actually kind of looks like Adam in the actual painting. The Chiefs walk out of Denver ! ChiefsKingdom pic. There are some cool minor touches in this one, including Hill holding up the peace sign he usually gives while breaking free for a long touchdown, the record in the middle of the road, a street sign that reads "Undefeated Rd.
Mahomes has wins over the Chargers, Steelers, 49ers, and Broncos so far this season, as this image represents. He'll have another stiff challenge this week when the Jacksonville Jaguars come to Kansas City, then it gets tougher from there when the Chiefs travel to Foxborough in Week 6 for a prime time game against the Patriots.
Perhaps one of those two teams will solve the riddle and get the best of Mahomes and the Chiefs, but more opponents than not will be carved up by Mahomes the rest of the way. I'm going to hell. Chiefs pic. This one surfaced while Mahomes was putting on his record-breaking performance against the Steelers. The Chiefs and Andy Reid deserve plenty of credit for how things have turned out with Mahomes so far, as they were aggressive about trading up for him in the NFL Draft and put him in a terrific situation to succeed, first giving him a year to develop under Alex Smith and then surrounding him with playmakers once it was his turn to take over the starting job.
Like the picture suggests, Reid and Mahomes are a perfect match. A play on the popular tea-sipping Kermit meme, this one popped up the day of Monday night's game against Denver and quickly spread its way across the Internet. This serves as a response to those who doubted Mahomes coming into the Denver game, and needless to say there's a lot fewer of those now. Expect this one to pop up in Twitter comments the rest of the season whenever Mahomes does something great.
Does this count as a meme? Who cares -- it makes the list because it's great for a laugh. The results are as wildly entertaining as it sounds. Be sure to stay to the end for a cameo from Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.
These videos only have a few thousand views, so be sure to give them some more. Other memes might have been more difficult to put together than this one, but how can Patrick Mahomes' face on one of the greatest football pictures ever taken Chiefs great Len Dawson smoking a cigarette at halftime of Super Bowl I not be at the top of the list? This is another one that came out in Week 2, at the request of a fan. It has since been updated to show Mahomes smoking two cigarettes at the same time.
