KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It was not a pretty victory, but the Kansas City Chiefs managed to hold off the New England Patriots to secure a 26-10 win, carrying the team to a 4-0 start this season.
The Chiefs' offense struggled to find its rhythm in the first half of the game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 236 yards on 19 completions with two touchdowns. But those didn't come until the final 16 minutes of the game. Good luck intervened in the first half for Mahomes when an apparent fumble was ruled a sack.
“They have a lot of good veteran players. I think that’s the first thing. When you have good players and you do different schemes and you’re able to do that you’re usually a pretty good defense,” Mahomes said. “As for us, especially me, I didn’t execute at a high level. When you’re playing against a defense like that, you want to go out there and have success.”
A win is a win! How bout that defense tho! #4-0 #ChiefsKingdom— Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) October 6, 2020
With two touchdown passes to Tyreek Hill and Mecole Hardman, Mahomes extended his streak of games with a passing touchdown to 14. It's the longest active streak in the NFL.
