Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes’ jersey raked in a ton of money for charity.

His jersey worn during the epic game against the Los Angeles Rams was auctioned for a little more than $36,000, Darren Rovell reported Tuesday morning. The money will go to help the victims of the wildfires in California. (RELATED: Here Are The Best Moments Of Week 14 Of The NFL Season)

Say whatever you want about all the screw-ups the NFL has made over the years, but it’s stuff like this that reminds us the league can still do a lot of good.

Raising $36,000 is a lot of money, and hopefully every single penny does a little bit to help those who are absolutely in need.

There are a lot of examples of pro athletes being absolute morons, the league not handling stuff well and a whole long list of other reasons to be disappointed in pro sports.

However, we have to remember there is an upside. That football game between the Rams and Chiefs, which resulted in a Los Angeles win, brought a ton of awareness to the fires and it helped raise money.

At the very least that’s something to be proud of for those involved with the game and the league.
