For the second week in a row, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Pat Mahomes racked up less than stellar numbers, for his high standards at least, when it comes to passing yards. However, unlike last week when the entire team laid an egg, this week it was due to the strength of the running game. The Chiefs moved to 5-1 via a 26-17 win, utilizing a night in which they outrushed the Buffalo Bills 245 to 84. 161 of those yards came from Clyde Edwards-Helaire, making him the undoubted MVP of the game.
Despite Mahomes throwing just 26 times (he still completed 21 of those efforts), he was still able to amass 225 yards and two touchdowns. The Bills stayed within touching distance for a long time, but they just didn’t have enough to win it in the end, with Josh Allen being asked too much as they tried to erase a deficit. The defeat was their second in a row after an unbeaten 4-0 start, dropping them to 4-2 thus far on the season. The defending Super Bowl champions are showing they are the complete team with performances like this, and it will be hard to not envision another deep run for them this year.
