Patrick Mahomes Reveals He Wears the Same Red Underwear During The NFL Season
The Super Bowl quarterback won't even wash it during winning streaks.
In recent, rather odd news, Super Bowl champion Patrick Mahomes admitted to wearing the same red underwear consistently during the NFL season.
Mahomes appeared on NFL champion brothers Peyton and Eli Manning’s ManningCast broadcast during the Nov. 13 showing of Monday Night Football. As the Buffalo Bills were playing against the Denver Broncos, Eli questioned Mahones about a superstition the quarterback has.
“We’ve heard over the years that some celebrities and athletes have habits they have to keep a winning streak going or a string of good luck.”
So, the former Giants quarterback said, “I love a good superstition, but can’t you just do the same pre-game meal? Does it have to be the red underwear?”

He did respond to Eli by first stating that his wife purchased the red underwear for him, implying that he has to wear them because of that fact, and he has been wearing them ever since, and winning.
“First, my wife, Brittany, got them for me, so I’m not throwin’ y’all down, but I have to wear ’em, ya know. But, at the same time, I threw ’em on that first season, we had a pretty good season that season. I only wear ’em for game day though, so they’re not too worn down. They’re not like these nasty — I clean them.”
“I wash them every once in a while at least.”
He expressed that he won’t clean them if the team is winning games.
“I mean, if we’re on a hot streak, I can’t wash them, you know? I’ve just got to keep it rolling. As long as I’m winning football games, I’ll keep the superstition going.”

With the talent and athleticism Mahomes has displayed since he entered the NFL, we are left wondering if this superstition is actually true.
