Mother's Day is less than two weeks away. You know what that means: Better prepare yourself for co-workers bombarding you with questions about your plans for mom. You should get a head start on brunch reservations, too. Also, don't forget to start looking at which 2017 car models best suit your mom.

Uh, well, that last part may apply if you're a first-round 2017 NFL Draft pick. Last week Deshaun Watson gave his mom, Deann Watson, a brand new Jaguar SUV for her birthday. This week, Leonard Fournette gave his mom, Lory, a new Mercedes SUV -- either just because, or he could be getting a head start on Mother's Day.

Either way, as you can tell in the clip, the special gesture is greatly appreciated. Fournette and Watson have worked very hard to reach the highest level of their profession and it's fitting that they share the fruits of their labor with the person who has been with them from the beginning -- literally.

The car featured in the Fournette clip is the Mercedes Benz-AMG GLE 63 S. Here are a few specs:

» 5.5L V8 biturbo engine

» 577 Horsepower

» 0-60 MPH in 4.1 seconds

I'm no automotive expert, but that's fast. Momma Fournette will be riding in style and can get places in a hurry if she needs to.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to get back to picking out which Edible Arrangement I'm going with this year and finding out if the Cheesecake Factory takes reservations on Mother's Day.
