BALTIMORE — Patrick Mahomes put on a scintillating show while outperforming Lamar Jackson, and the Kansas City Chiefs deftly played the role of defending Super Bowl champions in a 34-20 thumping of the Baltimore Ravens.

Just about everything Mahomes did worked against an overmatched Baltimore defense that had allowed only two touchdowns in its first two games.

"The plays that we ran, I think we just got in the right situations," Mahomes said. "I thought EB (Offensive Coordinator Eric Bieniemy) and Coach Reid did a great job of dialing them up at the right time. At the same time, I thought guys executed at a very high level."

Mahomes threw four touchdown passes to help the Chiefs emphatically ended the Ravens' 14-game regular season winning streak while extending their own run to 12 games, including playoffs.

Jackson is 21-4 as the Ravens' starting quarterback, with three of those losses to Mahomes and the Chiefs.

"Our defense was bearing down on one of the best offenses in this league," Head Coach Andy Reid said. "And for our defense to do that is something special."

The Chiefs (3-0) come back home to play the New England Patriots (2-1) on Sunday.
