Patrick Mahomes’ brother Jackson found himself in the spotlight once again this week with the Super Bowl rapidly approaching.
On Sunday, Patrick and the Kansas City Chiefs will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the biggest NFL game of the year. One team will leave a champion, the other will go home empty-handed.
With all eyes on the participants and those close to them, Jackson found a new and unfortunate way to make headlines.
A particularly embarrassing video he posted on social media began making the rounds this week.

“What do you do for a living?” one person asked
“Damn bro crazy flex! So proud of your brother for providing you with the money to make yourself look successful,” another person added.
“Does he have a skill? I’ve never seen or heard of him doing anything productive on his own,” a third person remarked.
To say that Jackson is something of an acquired taste would probably be an understatement. While Patrick seems to have a lot of patience for his little brother, society at large does not.
In fact, some are predicting that Jackson alone may be the reason why the Chiefs don’t win the Super Bowl this weekend. Between his embarrassing videos and general way of being, the youngster tends to be a huge distraction for his family.
Several videos have noted that it seems like, sometimes at least, Jackson has a legitimately negative impact on Patrick’s mental health. A particularly frosty exchange between the two brothers not long ago would seemingly back that assertion up.
Obviously people connected to NFL players often find themselves in the limelight. Joe Burrow’s girlfriend, Olivia Holzmacher, just learned that lesson firsthand when she posted some private photos this past week.

But the reactions to those people generally aren’t as universally negative as they are whenever Jackson is involved.
Will Patrick be able to overcome his younger brother’s pesky ways to win yet another Super Bowl in 2023? Time will tell.
