'Today is a day I will never forget!' the 23-year-old personal trainer wrote.

The Chiefs star quarterback abruptly left Arrowhead Stadium in the aftermath of a record-setting 26-14 win over the Cardinals after his girlfriend's stepfather had a medical emergency and died shortly thereafter.

Mahomes' girlfriend Brittany Matthews shed some light on the situation in a postgame Instagram post, explaining he had died after collapsing outside of Arrowhead Stadium.

The Kansas City Chiefs received a 15-yard penalty for Tyreek Hill's unorthodox touchdown celebration Sunday.

"He did not come back from this and he was called to heaven today!"

"We're sorry to hear about what took place yesterday", he said, per ESPN's Adam Teicher. "Our prayers and blessings are with the family. I've talked to Patrick and they're doing well for the circumstance that took place".
