The Chiefs QB, a two-time MVP, is arguably the best player in the NFL today and certainly one of the most recognisable.

The quarterback stands out with his curly hair and the fact he wears his helmet high up his head.

Certainly, it’s unique, and there aren’t many other American football stars who do this.

Why does Patrick Mahomes wear his helmet so high?

Mahomes wears his helmet so high on his head for multiple reasons.

One of those reasons is due to safety.

As Mahomes is a quarterback, he is at high risk of receiving strong tackles that may cause unfortunate head injuries.

So, the NFL star wears a helmet that is bigger than the usual one, with it being specially designed to protect against concussions.

A drawback of the bigger helmet, though, is the fact it can be more of an obstruction.

The Kansas City Chiefs star used to complain that his helmet would slip down and obstruct his vision.

So, to resolve this, he started wearing it further up his head to ensure he got the full protection but could also see and dictate the game from anywhere on the field.

It’s a subtle change, but it’s obviously helped his game, considering he’s now a two-time Super Bowl champion, winning both in recent years.
