Patrick Mahomes Call of Duty

As one of the most prolific quarterbacks in NFL history, Patrick Mahomes has led the Kansas City Chiefs to six straight AFC Championship Games and four Super Bowl appearances since joining the City of Fountains pro football franchise back in 2018. As of 2024, after collecting yet another SB ring, he became one of five QBs in NFL history to win three or more Super Bowls.

With that said, it’s safe to say, aged just 28, Mahomes is en route to challenge Tom Brady as the G.O.A.T. of the sport. But most fans don’t realize that the Texas native is an avid gaming fan, and in another life, he would’ve been a professional esports player.

Mahomes on Esports: In His Own Words…

In a recent video interview post on X (Formerly Twitter) by Jacob Hale, Mahomes was asked: “What job would you be doing if you were not an NFL player?” His response, without hesitation: “An esports video game player.”

When questioned on his favorite video game, Mahomes rapidly responded: “Call of Duty.”

Are the Kansas City Chiefs in Your COD Lobby?

Die-hard fans of the NFL superstar could’ve correctly guessed the answer to those questions because he’s never shied away from his love for Call of Duty. Back in 2022, ahead of the release of Modern Warfare 2, Mahomes called upon his teammates to join him online for some FPS fun.

The world-renowned quarterback posted on X, urging his Chiefs teammates like Travis Kelce, Juju-Smith Schuster, and others to get together and form a team. He highlighted that it is the Kansas City Chiefs’ bye week, thus allowing the players to focus on grinding MW2 without the need to prepare for an approaching football game.

Indeed, Mahomes’ wife, Brittany Mahomes, commented on the situation by bidding him “goodbye” before he immersed himself in the new video game.

So, next time you’re firing up Call of Duty, you never know; it could Mahomes camping with a sniper and causing you to die on every respawn.
