Patrick Mahomes’ well-intended post for Aaron Rodgers takes on new meaning because of missing punctuation

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ well wishes for New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers took on a completely different meaning Monday night — all because of a lack of punctuation. 

Countless players shared messages on X, formerly known as Twitter, after the four-time league MVP sustained a devastating injury in his opening series of the Jets‘ game against the Buffalo Bills.

Mahomes, like others, wrote that he was “praying” for Rodgers, but the absence of a comma changed the sentiment of the post. 

After building up their Super Bowl expectations in the offseason, the Jets have been dealt a tough blow by Rodgers’ injury. Backup quarterback Zach Wilson will now take over again as the starter.

Throwing one interception through four quarters, Wilson completed 12 of 21 passes for 140 yards and one touchdown on Monday night. The Jets won 22-16 in OT.
