Halloween came on a Monday night in 2022 and the Kansas City Chiefs were just closing the door on their lone bye weekend of the season.
It made for a nice family holiday weekend this year and superstar QB Patrick Mahomes was among those taking part in the festivities. His wife, Brittany Mahomes, even shared photos from the pleasant evening around the neighborhood.
The Mahomes family rocked a unique costume theme that Brittany referred to as “the Sun, the Moon & the beautiful Ster.⭐️✨”

Their daughter, Sterling Skye, was of course the adorable star of the night — both figuratively and literally. She wore silver and gold pants that were split down the middle with a bell bottom look around her shoes.
The finishing touches were a giant golden star on top of a black shirt, along with a Halloween candy basket that read: “Boo.”
Brittany was the moon, on the other hand, with a large replica of the orbiting dwarf planet that was covering her baby bump. She paired that with a black and silver theme throughout the rest of her outfit.
Finally, there was Patrick, and I can’t lie in noting that Chiefs Kingdom’s favorite celebrity dad looked just like the sun from the Raisin Bran boxes. He wore all black besides bright yellow shoes and gold-tinted Oakleys to match the enormous sun that he donned on his person.
Trick or Treat Trade Deadline in KC?
The NFL trade deadline is later today on November 1, at 4 p.m. EST (or 3 p.m. in Kansas City). The Chiefs profile as one of the league’s major buyers in 2022, but will they live up to that assessment when all is said and done?
Fans will hope for more treats than tricks on this Halloween-themed deadline.
After the acquisition of Kadarius Toney, many believe that defense should be the focus for KC if they decide to make any more deals — namely defensive end or cornerback.
“There’s a chance that somebody gets traded or that we pick somebody else up,” head coach Andy Reid told reporters on October 31. “Everything seems to happen in the 24th hour.”
CBS Sports senior NFL reporter Jonathan Jones went on record in voicing that the Chiefs are “deeply interested” in adding a pass rusher before the deadline. It doesn’t seem like the Carolina Panthers will make Brian Burns available, so does that mean KC pivots to a player like Bradley Chubb or Josh Allen? How about a more conservative trade for a veteran like Jerry Hughes or Dawuane Smoot?
There are a lot of different ways that general manager Brett Veach could go at the position to keep up with the top competition in the AFC.
At cornerback, the Chiefs have some more room to stand pat with rookie first-rounder Trent McDuffie expected to return. Veteran Rashad Fenton should also be on the mend after the bye, meanwhile, Frank Clark will serve out a two-game suspension.
As Jones suggested in his report, edge rusher should still be the number one priority on November 1. If the Chiefs need to, they could also part with a reserve like running back Ronald Jones in order to free up more cap space.
