Patrick Mahomes is widely considered one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The now three-time Super Bowl MVP doesn’t seem to lack confidence.

Despite the Chiefs’ well-documented ups and downs throughout the regular season, Mahomes’ belief that the team would ultimately end up champions seemingly never wavered.

Mahomes’ wife, Brittany, showed a text message from January, when the Chiefs quarterback made a prediction about the team’s postseason fate.

“I decided we were going to win the Super Bowl,” the six-time Pro Bowl selection wrote.

It appeared Mahomes sent the message to Brittany on Jan. 5, two days before Kansas City’s regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Chargers. At that point, the Baltimore Ravens had already clinched the top seed in the AFC playoffs, and the Chiefs knew they could enter the postseason as a No. 3 seed, at best.

Losing six games in the regular season and being the third seed meant Mahomes would have to play outside the friendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium at some point in the 2023 playoffs if the Chiefs wanted to return to the Super Bowl.

Some doubted Mahomes’ ability to win on the road. The league-leading drops and general lack of production from the team’s wide receiver group only added more fuel to the doubts.

The Chiefs beat the Miami Dolphins in a cold wild card round game, before traveling to Orchard Park, New York, where they defeated the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. The Ravens hosted the Chiefs for the AFC Championship game on Jan. 28, the same day Mahomes sent another confiding text message to his wife.
