An eventful 2021 NFL campaign has the Kansas City Chiefs in the top spot of their divisional rankings on Turkey Day, which conveniently fell on the team’s bye week this season. While they are certain to be thankful for the much-needed time off, the Raiders’ win on Thursday leaves them with plenty of work to do to stay in the lead with just six games remaining this year.

QB Patrick Mahomes seemed unphased by the circumstances surrounding the NFL’s Thanksgiving schedule and its implications for the AFC standings, posing for pictures with his fiancée and daughter that was posted to social media in celebration of Thursday’s holiday.

“1st Thanksgiving with Ster Girl🤎🦃 Extra thankful,” Matthews wrote on Instagram. “Happy Thanksgiving everyone😘.”

Check out the happy family, complete with young Sterling Mahomes in their first-ever Thanksgiving together down below:

Family and football go together like mashed potatoes and gravy, especially on such a special day as Thanksgiving. Speculation remains as to what the spread looked like at the family’s gathering, but with Patrick Mahomes in the mix, it is a fair assumption that ketchup was involved in one way or another.

The Chiefs’ next matchup will be against the Denver Broncos on December 5th, just three weeks from Christmas, which is sure to be a special time for the first-time dad. Fans are certainly hoping that Kansas City can secure another Super Bowl berth this season. Ideally, the time off this past week will ensure the team is well rested for their final push for the postseason.

In the end, the athletic pursuits of the 500-million-dollar quarterback pale in comparison to the new duties he faces off the field as a dad, especially as the holiday season gets into full swing. As much as the city is rooting for him as one of their most recognizable icons, they remain steadfastly committed to supporting him through his coming of age as a girl-dad, which could prove to be the most daunting challenge of his life.
