The New England Patriots defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, and quarterback Tom Brady sought out Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
We cannot really say much about the discussion Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes had.

Bowl and to win it. For this opportunity to fall short, it’s going to hurt, and

know you can build off this, use this feeling as motivation to go out and find
ways to win next time.”
