Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes has made the 99 Club in “Madden NFL 22″ for the third consecutive season, but the way he found out about it this year tops all other seasons.
Brittany Matthews, Mahomes’ fiancee, dressed their baby daughter Sterling Skye in a onesie to surprise Patrick with his 99 overall rating announcement. The onesie had a special message for the star quarterback, who read it aloud:
“Dad is in the 99 Club again,” Mahomes said. “Nice, that’s the best surprise ever.”

This probably won’t resonate with most of the fans of the video game franchise, but talk about an adorable moment for the Mahomes family.
Mahomes is not only the top-ranked quarterback in the game with a 99 overall rating, but he’s also on the cover of the game with the quarterback who most recently defeated him in Super Bowl LV. We haven’t yet learned where the rest of the quarterbacks rank, but we know that Tom Brady isn’t a 99 overall this time around.
Mahomes is the second Chiefs player to be named to the 99 Club this season, joining TE Travis Kelce, who was named to the 99 Club earlier this week. Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams and Los Angeles Rams DT Aaron Donald and CB Jalen Ramsey are the only other players to be named to the 99 Club to start the 2021 NFL season.
“Madden NFL 22” launches on August 20, 2021, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S platforms.
