Jackson Mahomes’ embarrassing photos from the Kansas City Chiefs’ loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday night have gone viral.
Jackson was on hand for the inaugural game of the 2023-24 NFL regular season to watch his older brother, Patrick, begin the long trek towards defending his Super Bowl crown.
Unfortunately, the Chiefs wound up losing to the Lions 21-20 and will now begin their campaign 0-1.
While losing to Detroit was obviously bad, Kansas City can point to Travis Kelce’s absence as the culprit. That defeat wasn’t the only unfortunate thing to happen to the squad on Thursday night, though.
As usual, Jackson embarrassed himself, the Chiefs and his older brother with his weird selfie photos at the game. Not even his sister-in-law Brittany’s wild outfit to the game could distract folks from how awkward he is.
It is something of an open secret that the relationship between Patrick and Jackson can be frosty at times. Their pair’s icy recent exchange was caught on video and scrutinized to no end.
Jackson undermining his big brother with his antics obviously doesn’t help.
That said, Patrick is a loyal guy. His brother is his brother, and he allows him to tag along even if he does consistently put out social media content of this nature:

At the end of the day, Patrick is obviously one of the greatest NFL players of all time already.
Watching him play is a privilege.

But one unfortunate consequence of his reign over the league has been the emergence of his younger brother.
Will Patrick ever find a way to keep Jackson in line? Time will tell, but so far it doesn’t look like it.
