Kansas City scored late to put this game away, winning by a final score of 34-20. Patrick Mahomes finished the night with 385 yards and four touchdowns through the air, and added a touchdown on the ground in a great all-around effort. The Chiefs improved to 3-0 and the Ravens dropped to 2-1.
Ravens turn this into a one-score game
The Chiefs looked like they were going to run away with this thing, but Baltimore has quietly climbed back into it. A field goal marked the only points for either team in a quiet third quarter and after the Chiefs couldn’t convert a 4th and 1, the Ravens marched 49 yards down the field in six plays to score a touchdown and cut the lead to 27-20 at the start of the fourth quarter. With 14:55 to go in the game, we’ve got an interesting one.

Patrick Mahomes finds Tyreek Hill for leaping TD and 20-10 lead
The Chiefs offense is looking really impressive in the first half. Mahomes found Hill on this score, and I really have no idea how anybody can consistently stop the Chiefs. Someone give the Chargers a call!

Ravens take 3-0 lead on opening drive
Baltimore’s drive short-circuited inside the red zone, but a big Lamar Jackson run got them into position to eventually convert a field goal. They’ll need touchdowns to beat the Chiefs, but Baltimore drew first blood.
