After the Chiefs' wild 36-35 loss to the Ravens on Sunday night, Patrick Mahomes' brother, Jackson, was involved in an incident with some Ravens fans at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. After being heckled, Jackson decided to dump a bottle of water on them before leaving the stadium.
In news that probably won't surprise you, Patrick Mahomes was asked about the situation during his weekly press conference. Although the quarterback didn't necessarily try to defend Jackson, he did point out that his brother and his fiancee (Brittany Matthews) were both subject to a lot heckling that didn't make its way on to the video that went viral.
"Yeah, I mean, obviously it's something that we don't want to necessarily do," Mahomes said, via the Kansas City Star. "There was things said to him, and Brittany, that you don't see kind of on the clip."
In the video, which was filmed by a Ravens fan, you can hear one Baltimore fan yelling "I'm so sorry for you" at Jackson Mahomes over and over.
Since the video is only 15 seconds long and only includes what happened after the game, it's not clear what else the hecklers might have said to Jackson Mahomes that set him off. Whatever it was though, it was enough that it caused both Matthews and Kansas City mayor Quinton Lucas to come out in support of Jackson.

No matter what the Ravens fans might have said, Patrick Mahomes said it's important for his brother to use the incident as a learning experience.
"I mean, he's been good at it, at not trying to respond to that stuff," Mahomes said. "He takes a lot and he's usually pretty good at it, and he'll learn from it and just try to stay away from those people as best he can."
The goods news for Jackson is that he shouldn't have to worry about hecklers this week and that's because the Chiefs will be returning home to Kansas City face the Chargers on Sunday.
