Patrick Mahomes is having a nice little game against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football. Mahomes has run for a touchdown and thrown another and the Chiefs lead, 17-0. After Mahomes' touchdown pass to Travis Kelce, he ran to the sideline counting on his fingers. Cris Collinsworth and the NBC crew seem to think he was counting the teams who passed on him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Of course, the Chicago Bears traded up a single spot in that draft to select Mitch Trubisky, And Trubisky is on the other side of the field, having his usual screen-pass-happy game as his team is getting shut out.

Don't let anyone tell you that Mahomes, as an MVP, should let go of dropping to the 10th pick as motivation. Michael Jordan was picked 3rd and it probably bothered him at some point this weekend. The Bears will never live this down and Patrick Mahomes will never have any reason to let them.
