The defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs continue to ride high after another win Sunday over the New Orleans Saints moved their NFL-best record to 13-1, and based off what happened Monday morning, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes is in a good mood.

Just after 10 a.m. Mountain time, Mahomes tweeted that he had changed his profile picture on the social media site (users are prompted to do so after a change but don’t have to post the tweet). The new photo: An iconic one of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid from his playing days at BYU.

Reid played for the Cougars from 1978-1980 and has been the Chiefs’ head coach since 2013.

Mahomes didn’t say anything else about the photo, but he retweeted a quote tweet from teammate Tyreek Hill that had two laughing emojis and just one word: “goat.”

Some of Mahomes’ teammates also changed their profile pictures on Twitter Monday. Among them, Mecole Hardman switched his to one of Mahomes from high school, and Hill changed his to one of Kansas City offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy from Bieniemy’s playing days with the former San Diego Chargers.
